Are you also a big fan of carrot juice? I serve mine with apple, ginger and celery, jummy! And are you looking for recipes on how to use your carrot pulp? You are at the right place!
Since I treated myself to a slow juicer from kitchen aid, I love juicing. But I hate food waste, so I was very reluctant to use the juicer on a regular basis. But then I got a great idea. I decided to develop recipes that use the pulp. Wow, why did I not think of that before? For the carrot pulp I came up with 3 ideas: carrot banana bread, felafel with carrot and the carrot bliss balls you are looking at here. It is so satisfying to work on these kind of recipes, brings a big smile onto my face! Rescue food is my slogan today!
Carrot pulp bliss balls
delicious bliss balls made with carrot pulp left from juicing carrots. Great way to use the pulp and reduce food waste!

- 120 gr apricots unsulfurized

Add the carrot pulp, grated coconut and vanilla and pulse or mix for 1 minute more
