Left-over Juice Pulp Dog Treat Recipe

I get A LOT of requests for recipes that use the pulp that is left over from juicing. Frankly, I understand that when you look at all of that vegetable matter, you think, “I can’t possibly throw this away!” But seriously, what you are looking at, it is just the plant matter that is left over from the fruits and vegetables after you extract the nutrients and flavor out of them. It is almost all fiber with hardly any nutrients.



My leftover juice pulp normally ends up feeding the compost pile. But all of that changed a couple of days ago. I was looking at the dwindling doggie treat jar and the pups expanding waistlines and made a decision. I would accept the juice pulp challenge make doggie treats from the pulp!



I started collecting my left-over pulp and placed it in the freezer. When I had a significant amount (only 3¬†juicings), I pulled it out, let it thaw and started making these little treats. With the addition of sunflower seeds and flax, I created a jar full of treats that the pups went wild for and wouldn’t pack on the pounds.

A great savings over purchased doggie bones, and much healthier, I think this dog treat recipe is a winner. Oh…and I did try one. They are good but honestly lack the wonderful flavor I could have gotten if I had used the actual veggies, not just their pulp. IMPORTANT NOTE: There are some fruits and veggies that are toxic to dogs. Please make sure you don’t include these in your treats. There is a good list here: Toxic Fruits and Veggies for dogs.

    I mix organic broth, chicken, turkey or beef, add the veggie pulp and freeze. My dog loves it!

    There’s no list of fruits and veggies toxic to dogs

    Hello, can this be done in a regular oven at that temperature or do you require a dehydrator?

    The link to “Toxic Fruits & Veggies to Dogs” is invalid. Can that be remedied?

    I make ice blocks with the pulp, adding some water and meat meal, pour into a small container (e.g. a glass or cup) freeze! they love it, especially on a hot day

        Thank you for this I’d very much like to try this recipe. I’m just confused about last line of instructions.

        “Dehydrate at 145* for 1 hour, reduce heat to 115 and continue to dry until completely dry, flipping once during dehydration. Approximately 12-14 hours.”

        Do I reduce heat to 115 and leave dehydrating for 12-14 hours AFTER dehydrating for an hour on 145?

        Thanks for your help.

          Hi, Daniel, yes…you continue to dry after the one hour.
