I love making homemade nut milk. It doesn’t last too long in my house, but nonetheless, I love making it. It’s so fresh and delicious. I love how you can customize the flavors, the sweetness, and make it your own. Up until this week I always just discarded the leftover pulp. Then I decided to do something fun…
I’ve been seeing on the interwebs all types of things made from leftover pulp: granola, cookies, bars, and balls, to name a few! I love the idea of using all parts of the nut so that’s what we’re doing today. So this is a DOUBLE WHAMMY post, two recipes for one.
First we’re making the best darn almond milk you ever did have. It’s so fresh and decadent. I love love love the chocolate peanut butter flavor. I wish I could make this by the gallons, it is THAT good. Then, we’re making really yummy chocolate bliss balls made from the leftover pulp. They taste like little brownie bites and my kids were OBSESSED.
I’d love to hear how you guys use the leftover pulp from your nut milks. Let me know in the comments!
I always used cheese cloths to make my nut milks in the past and always kinda dreaded it because it was super messy and all over the place. I got the nut milk bags and really love how contained and easy they were! Plus they’re machine washable so you can throw them in your laundry and use them over and over.
