The first step in preparing your ingredients for almond pulp energy balls is to make homemade almond milk! If you haven’t tried your hand at it, definitely do. The process is simple, and when you plan to make these energy balls afterwards, you are basically making almond milk for free! That’s a steal of a deal if you ask me.

After you make almond milk, you are left with pulp like this.

The blended almonds are wet. Now, you could dry the blended almonds and turn it into almond meal for later uses. However, I like the simplicity of taking the almond pulp and putting it straight into a new recipe, with no extra step. You with me?

Storing almond pulp

When I’m making almond milk, I make sure to squeeze as much liquid out as I can. If I’m not ready to make use of my almond pulp right away, I simple store it in the fridge for a day or two in a sealed container, right in the cheesecloth. Once it’s time to use it, I remove it from the cheesecloth and get to no-baking!

I’m excited for you to try this recipe to use up leftover almond pulp! A quick tip – the amount of leftover liquid in almond pulp can vary. We may all squeeze out a different amount of almond milk.

If you find your energy ball mixture is a little more wet add, slowly increase the coconut flour 1 tsp at a time.

If you find your energy ball mixture is a little dry and doesn’t hold shape, add a little water, 1 tbsp at a time.
