What Is Almond Pulp?

After you make almond milk at home, there remain some leftovers from it. The pulp you are left with after all the liquid is strained is what we call almond pulp also known as almond milk paste. Since it is wet, you can dry it out, make flour, and use it in different recipes. But for this recipe, you don’t need to do that. Just squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the pulp.

How to make my almond milk pulp cake

Vegan no-bake almond pulp cake made from leftovers of homemade milk. Super simple and easy to make.

This simple no-bake cake from almond milk pulp is so soft and chewy, you’ll make it all the time when you make your almond milk. You can make this quick and easy dessert in just 10 minutes because it requires no baking at all! Just mix all the ingredients together, pour it over with homemade melted dark chocolate, and freeze (this is the hardest part 🙂 ).

Time needed: 10 minutes.

Make your almond pulp cake in 10 minutes – just follow these 3 easy steps

  1. Make the cake base

    In a medium-sized bowl mash the dates. If they are not soft enough, put them in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain well. After that, add almond milk pulp, rolled oats, ground flaxseed, walnuts (finely chopped), and maple syrup together.
    Knead it well with your hands (how fun!) and put it in a square cake pan (I used 7 x 7 inches) lined with parchment paper, pressing down gently.

  2. Make your homemade dark chocolate

    Next, melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan on very low heat if not already melted. Add maple syrup, vanilla extract, cacao powder, and a pinch of salt. Stir constantly until everything is combined thoroughly (3-5 min). The mixture shouldn’t have clumps.

  3. Cover with the chocolate and freeze

    Pour the chocolate over the cake mixture in the pan. Freeze for at least one hour. In this way, the slices will be well-formed when you cut them.

  4. Serve and enjoy

    Once the cake is fully cooled and set, remove it from the freezer and peel away the parchment paper. Decorate with coconut flakes if you like. Cut it into square slices and serve. It’s so delicious you can’t have just one!

This no-bake almond pulp cake is vegan and gluten-free! It’s a super quick and easy snack or dessert. Enjoy your tender, moist, hearty, and entirely vegan cake with a cup of your favorite coffee or tea.
