It comes from my first cookbook, Everyday Detox, and tastes remarkably like the “real thing.” I love making it in my blender, immediately after making a batch of homemade almond milk, so I only have to clean my blender once after making both recipes.
How to Make Almond Pulp
To make almond pulp, you first need to make a batch of homemade almond milk. The ratio I use is 4 cups water to 1 cup of almonds, but you can use less water for a creamier milk, if you like.
Once you’ve strained the milk through a nut milk bag, what you have leftover is the almond pulp. To make this hummus, you simply add the wet almond pulp back to the blender, add in the rest of the hummus ingredients, and blend again!
It really couldn’t be easier. Serve this hummus with sliced veggies and enjoy it as a healthy snack all week long.

This healthy hummus is made from almond pulp, leftover from making almond milk. It's made with no beans, for a dip that's easier to digest.
- 1/2 cup raw tahini
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 2 cloves garlic , minced
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 scant cup wet almond pulp (leftover from making 1 batch of almond milk; see below)
- 1/4 cup water
Combine the tahini, lemon juice, cumin, garlic, salt, and olive oil in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Add the almond pulp and water, then blend again until very smooth. For best flavor, place the hummus in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.
Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Note: A high speed blender is best for breaking down the gritty texture of the almond pulp, but a food processor can also be used to prepare this hummus.

- If you don’t have almond pulp, try this Zucchini Hummus recipe instead, for another bean-free option.
- I prefer the mild flavor of raw tahini, but any tahini should work for this recipe. As always, adjust the flavoring to your taste!
