Do you like making your own almond milk but don’t know what to do with the pulp? This is a roundup for you!
Two Ways to Use Almond Pulp
- Almond meal can be made by drying the almond pulp in the oven and then utilizing it in baking recipes. When utilizing almond meal created from leftover pulp in recipes that call for standard almond meal, we’ve found that adding more water, oil, or fat can help compensate. This is because part of the fat from the almonds is lost during the almond milk production process and must be replaced in baked goods for optimal texture.
- Use raw almond pulp: You can use raw almond pulp (as seen in the brownie pieces below!). It’s perfect for dishes like energy bites that call for almonds or nut meal, or for replacing some of the oats or nuts in granola.
Now that you know how to use almond pulp in two different ways, try these 12 dishes that include almond meal as an ingredient – a mix of savory and sweet!
What can you do with leftover almond milk?
, allowing the milk to drain into the dish.
A strainer balanced over a sink with a bowl underneath can be used to place the straining bag inside and enable the almond milk to drain. Squeeze the bag to get the leftover liquid out after the mixture has drained for a few minutes. (Don’t throw out all that milk; you’ll be astonished how much is left in there!) Store the milk in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to a week. The leftover almond pulp in the straining bag can be composted or used to make almond butter.
After preparing almond milk, what happens to the pulp?
Creating almond milk is the first stage in making almond meal from almond pulp. Unlike most store-bought almond milks, our Homemade Almond Milk is simple to make and delivers a rich, creamy beverage with a significant number of almonds.
The almond pulp is next dried at a low temperature in the oven, allowed to cool overnight on the counter, and then processed into almond meal in a food processor or high-powered blender.
When it comes to almond pulp, how long does it last?
Leftover almond pulp can be kept in the fridge for up to five days. If you’re going to keep almond pulp in the fridge, make sure it’s in a tightly sealed container. Glass or another airtight container can be used. Simply make sure the container is sealed because moisture can develop and cause the pulp to go bad faster or develop mold if any air gets in.
You can also freeze almond pulp if you don’t want to use it right away. If you’re freezing the pulp, a reusable silicone storage bag, such as a Stasher, is probably best, but you can also freeze the pulp in a glass mason jar or other freezer-safe container.
What is the best way to store leftover almond pulp?
A cup of whole almonds yields around half a cup of almond pulp. If you want to use the pulp within a week, store it in the fridge in an airtight container. If you’re going to keep the pulp for more than a week, keep it frozen in a sealed container until you need it.
Almond flour can be made by dehydrating or lightly baking almond pulp until it is dry, then using it in any recipe that calls for store-bought almond flour. After the flour has dried, you may wish to reprocess it to eliminate any clumps and generate finer flour. Keep the jar in an airtight container. Almond flour can be used in gluten-free vegan muffins or anywhere else where an almond flavor is desired.
Does almond pulp have any nutritional value?
While preparing almond milk has reduced the nutritious content of the pulp, there is still a lot to gain from eating it. The residual pulp includes fiber, protein, carbs, and healthy fat, among other macronutrients. Calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium, vitamin E, and zinc are among the micronutrients. The macronutrients, particularly fat, aid in the absorption of the micronutrients in question. Furthermore, almond pulp is a high-quality energy source that can keep you full for a long time.
Is it possible to freeze almond pulp?
Fresh parsley, coriander, or a touch of green Tabasco are all good additions. Vegetables like zucchini or roasted pumpkin can also be included. Blend in a food processor until smooth and creamy, then keep in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days. Serve with salads and fresh veggies.
If you produce almond milk at home on a regular basis, freezing your almond pulp is also a good idea. Before defrosting and preparing my own almond flour to use in banana bread, I usually freeze a couple batches beforehand. Simply store your nut pulp in a plastic freezer bag or other tightly sealed container until needed.

20. You can feed it to your chickens, freeze it in ice cube trays, or compost it.
*Please note that the moisture content of your juice pulp varies per juicer, so you may need to squeeze off extra juice in some of these recipes for the best results.
Is almond pulp and almond flour the same thing?
Almond meal is the name given to the pulp in its dry state. Almond flour is made by putting the meal in a blender or coffee grinder and blitzing it until it’s very fine. Purists, on the other hand, believe that authentic almond flour can only be made when the almonds have been blanched and the skins removed.
