Last week I was nudged to create these Coconut Curry Almond Pulp Bites after accidentally sprinkling Rendang Curry powder in the last of my homemade almond milk; I was originally going for turmeric, so it comes to show how vibrant the color is of the curry powder (not really anything like turmeric at all, but you know, whatever.)
I’m not gonna lie, sipping on the curried milk wasn’t too terrible at all, and if I added something like vanilla protein powder, I might have ended up with a pretty drinkable drink, but, I decided to use the curried milk with some almond pulp that I wanted to use up.
After making almond joy bites with leftover almond pulp in the past, I decided to make something similar, with totally different flavors; the taste of coconut makes me feel really happy, and the curry powder goes very good with coconut and tropical flavors.
Coconut Curry Almond Pulp Bites
Using up almond pulp with coconut and dates is yummy to begin with, but flavored with a Rendang Malaysian curry powder (that goes so good with tropical flavors, especially coconut) is even yummier.
- 10 dates
- 1 cup almond pulp
- 1 cup coconut flakes (save 1/2 cup for rolling)
- 1 tsp Rendang Malaysian curry powder by Seasonality Spices
- 2 tbsp homemade almond milk
Process all the ingredients together in a blender / food processor (accept for 1/2 cup of coconut flakes) until the mixture is well combined.
Roll the mixture into balls, and roll the balls in the remaining coconut flakes.
To keep these bites fresh, store them in the freezer and enjoy as desired.
Eating these bites with the tiny bit of curried almond milk that remained was actually a pretty tasty experience, so this mistake ended up working in my favor.
I really am growing to enjoy making my own almond milk with my Ellies best nut milk bag, and it’s fun figuring out how to use up the almond pulp; trying to live waste free and cook more things from scratch, it feels good making more homemade things from a homemade thing.
