Wondering what to do with the pulp after juicing your carrots?
Try making these no-bake Carrot Cake Bites!
1 1/2 cups of pulp from juicing carrots (or 1 1/2 cup finely grated carrots)
2 cups of nuts (almonds, walnuts and/or pecans)
1 cup of pitted dates
1 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground Ginger
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Salt
Juice carrots until you have 1 1/2 cups of carrot pulp. Or if you do not have a juicer, finely grate carrots and use a paper towel to absorb the excess water from the carrots.
In a food processor, process the nuts and dates until paste-like. Add 1 cup of the coconut and the spices. Process until combined.
In a large bowl mix the nut mixture with the carrots.
Using a scoop or your hands, form dough into bite sized balls, then roll in remaining 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.
Chill for 30 minutes and enjoy a healthy snack that happens to also be gluten free and vegan.
