Common questions about almond pulp

How long does almond pulp last?

In my experience, almond pulp will be good for 3-4 days in the fridge (in a closed container) or up to 3 months in the freeze.

Can I substitute almond meat or almond flour for almond pulp?

In most recipes, you can’t just substitute almond pulp for almond meat/flour (which also have differences between them).
This is because almond pulp is different than almond meat and almond flour: no matter how well you squeeze it, pulp will retain some moisture.
Also, nut pulp has much less fat because a good portion of it went to the milk.

However, you can make almond meal from almond pulp (or at least, something very similar, just with less oil).
All the recipes on this list work with almond pulp or almond meat made from almond pulp.

I hope this list inspires you to use your almond pulp in more creative ways.
