View Full Version : Freezing Soaked Almonds without Dehydrating Them

Can this be done? I have soaked a cup of almonds and was going to make some almond milk with them, but have decided to wait.
Can I just rinse the almonds and freeze them without dehydrating them first?
I would say absolutely! I'm a freezin' FOOL!

YAY Deb, I was hoping that you would answer me :)
Thank you!! That's the answer I wanted to hear ;)
So, just rinse and then put in a freezer bag and freeze? Sounds simple enough :)

I have just refrigerated some soaked almonds two days ago and they're still good now. I had peeled the skins off two cups of almonds and realized i've done too many, so i just put the rest in the fridge. I'm sure freezing works too, although I thought thawing would be a pain so i chose to refrigerate them. I guess it depends on when you plan to consume them. I like adding a few almonds to smoothies so it's a good idea to have a few soaked almonds ready at all times. :)

I eat chia pudding everyday, so I was about to make a new batch for this week. I have become VERY fond of chia pudding with Lucuma Powder and
chopped up bananas. It is one of my favorite foods!!
But, I think I am going to do a few days of juice and green smoothie feasting, so I didn't need the soaked almonds right now.
I'm not sure how long I will do just juice and green smoothies, so I'm not sure how long they would need to stay in the fridge.
I think I will try freezing them and just make sure I defrost them a day before I need them.
Thank you so much for your suggestion with the refrigeration.
Sounds good! And yes - isn't chia pudding just so darn tasty? You're sure welcome! Enjoy your juice and green smoothies :)
