Raw Juice Pulp Cake

I’m always looking for ways to reinvent my juicing pulp since I have so much in my freezer. I usually make raw burgers by mixing sunflower seeds and a few other things together, then dehydrating them. I’ll post that recipe soon but until then you’ve got to try this!

This turned out great! When you use leftover pulp containing beets it comes out a beautiful red velvet color! You can’t even tell there are veggies in this, everyone will be fooled AND you won’t waste your pulp!! Sorry about the bad pics but you know the story! ;-)

INGREDIENTS

 Cake

  • 3 cups of leftover juice pulp (I used beet, basil, fennel & carrot pulp – pulp with beets in it are really good in this recipe!)
  • 1/2 cup almonds or cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
  • 3/4 cup dates, chopped
  • 1/2 cup psyllium husks
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • zest of one lemon or orange

Date Icing

  • 1 cup dates, soaked for at least 1 hour
  • juice of one lemon or orange
  • 2 teaspoons of psyllium husks

Optional mix-ins – Haven’t tried these yet but I think they would be good? * Unsweetened shredded coconut – add to cake mix or icing * 1/2 banana into the cake mix * Almond butter * Cacao powder

Instructions:

  1. Cake – place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until well mixed, stopping to scrape sides and push mixture along if it gets stuck
  2. Press cake mixture into a pan – I used a 8″ x 8″ pan but you could use a pie pan
  3. Icing – blend dates, psyllium husks and lemon together until you have thick frosting consistency – I used my magic bullet for this, next time I’ll use my mini food processor
  4. Spread icing on top of cake and let cake sit for 10 or so minutes. I let mine sit in the fridge for 30 minutes but I don’t think that’s necessary. Cut and serve!

Original recipe idea from The Raw Food Mum

Couldn't resist eating more, it's so good!

Couldn’t resist… it’s so good!

"Uh... Mom.... What in the heck is this?"

“Uh… Mom…. What in the heck is this?”

"Ok.. here goes!"

“I guess I”ll try it…”

"OOH! I LIKE IT!"

“OOH! I LIKE IT!”

    Do you cook it at all? I’m confused b/c it looks as if it’s been cooked.

    • Nope! Just press it into the pan and spread the icing over the top!

  2. Do you use psyllium husk powder? I’ve never used it before, very curious to try! And I have a lot of juice pulp to use up!

    • I think that could work! Let me know how it comes out!

  3. does this really taste good? i am intrigued and I’m about to do some juicing so I will have some beet and carrot pulp. very interesting idea.

    Do you think I could use VitaMix pulp (maybe filtered through cheese cloth) or would that be too finely ground? I don’t have a regular juicer anymore…not sure what happened to it!

      I think so! It’s okay, I rarely use my juicer anymore! :-)
