How to Freeze Nut Pulp

Frozen Nut Pulp

Nut milk makes a great dairy-free alternative to cow's milk, and it is also relatively easy to make at home. Making your own nut milk usually involves straining a blended mixture of water and finely ground nuts through a cheesecloth or a nut milk bag – a procedure that can leave you with a pile of fresh nut pulp. The good news is that there are tons of different ways to use leftover nut pulp.

The Easiest Way to Freeze Nut Pulp

You can also freeze nut pulp in case you cannot use it right away. There are a couple of different ways to freeze fresh nut pulp, but the easiest way to freeze it is to simply put the fresh pulp in freezer-safe bags or containers and pop them in the freezer for storage. Then, when you are ready to use your nut pulp, simply pull out a bag or container from the freezer, and let the frozen nut pulp thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature before using it in your favorite nut pulp recipes. Please note that according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) any food that has been left outside the refrigerator for longer than two hours (or one hour in temperatures above 90 °F) should not be refrozen.

Freezing Nut Pulp Using the Ice Cube Tray Method

If your favorite nut pulp recipes only call for small amounts of nut pulp and you hate the idea of wasting thawed nut pulp that cannot be refrozen, you might want to use the ice cube tray method for freezing your nut pulp. Here's how it's done:

  1. First, put the fresh nut pulp in an ice cube tray, and place the tray in your freezer.
  2. Once the nut pulp is frozen, pop the cubes out of the tray, and transfer them to a freezer-safe bag.
  3. Remove as much air as possible from the bag, and seal.
  4. Label the bag with today's date, and store it in the freezer until you are ready to use your frozen nut pulp.
