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!
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.
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.
What is the best way to store leftover almond pulp?
If you plan to repurpose the leftover almond pulp, keep it in the fridge for approximately a week in a sealed container or bag.
If you want to use it later but don’t think you’ll be able to do so within a week, freeze it in a sealed bag or container until you need it.
To defrost the frozen almond pulp, simply place it in the fridge until softened, or place it in water to thaw faster if necessary.
How do you keep almond milk from going to waste?
Blend almonds, water, and medjool date in a blender (if using). Blend until everything is well combined. Transfer the milk to a glass bottle or another container for storage. This will keep for up to 4 days in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.

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 almond pulp beneficial to plants?
Composting Leftover Pulp is Option #1. The garbage from your yard and kitchen can then be utilized as soil to feed your plants with the nutrients they require to flourish, generate food, and release oxygen once your compost pile is ready.

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.
