Vegan Dog Treats out of Wasted Almond Pulp

Posted by Pawan Saunya on

Did you know the longest living dog recorded was VEGAN! This blows our mind too!

Anyhow, on the last post we made some almond milk. So in this post we are going to use the waste that would have been created by making of the almonds (the almond pulpo) to create some vegan dog biscuits.

So let’s get started

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 celcuis (356 F)

  2. In a bowl add a ¼ cup of coconut oil

  3. Add ¼ cup of peanut butter, and a mashed banana. Then combine.

  4. Add 1 cup of blended oats

  5. 1 -2 cups of almond pulp depending on how much you have left over.

  6. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda

  7. 1 grated carrot and stir until completely combined.

  8. Lightly flour a baking tray, and begin to make balls of batter with two spoons.

  9. Lightly flatten them and place in the oven for 40 minutes, turning once in the middle, or until they are crispy and golden brown.  


Break into your desired size of treats, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Your dog will love the low impact / zero waste vegan dog biscuits!

DIY Natural Hair Spray

Posted by Pawan Saunya on

Today we will be making a simple green alternative to the current hair sprays that are on offer -  which nearly 100% of the time comes in plastic packaging. This hairspray recipe is extremely cheap and easy to make.

We will be using 3 simple ingredients. 2 of them you definitely have at home - water and sea salt. And the third ingredient in this low impact hair spray is…. You guessed it! Argan oil... or to be honest any hair nourishing oil that works for you. Everyone has hair (maybe not all, if you don’t, I’m curious to as how you got here?). If you do have hair, you will definitely notice that on some days it’s more oilier than others. This depends mainly three factors: How often you wash your hair,  with what you wash your hair and on the type of food you eat. So if you have more oilly hair, then you can of course decrease the amount of argon oil or your oil of preference.

Let’s get to it! Let’s make the world’s simplest natural homemade hairspray!

  1. In a pourable container, add 1 cup of warm water

  2. A tablespoon of sea salt

  3. 1- 2 tsp of argan oil or any hair nourishing oil and stir until it has dissolved.

As mentioned before, If you have dry hair add more oil, and if you tend to get greasy hair add less. Place the mixture in a glass spray bottle, or repurpose an old spray bottle you might have at home.

So how do we use this mystical natural hair spray?
Like anything in life, first shake well before use - not sure if you got that joke. But do shake well before use, and apply onto the ends of your hair after a shower, working the spray into your hair with your hands. Once dry you should be left with textured hair like you just walked off the beach!

DIY Almond Milk

Posted by Pawan Saunya on

Before we even get started about almonds and almond milk, a lot of you may have the predisposition that almond milk is horrible for the environment, especially those living in California. Well, hell no! It is way better than cow milk. The graphics below should be of help:

Sure that almonds have a bigger footprint than soy and oat milk but at the same time it is the most popular in the UK & US. So we wanted to make it a bit more eco-friendly by showing you a home method to making almond milk and also using the waste pulp to make some almond pulp doggy biscuits!


So let’s get started with the almond milk:

  1. Pour 1 cup of almonds in a bowl and cover with water

  2. Leave to soak for 8 - 12 hours, or over night. The longer they soak the creamier the milk.

  3. Drain the water away and add the soaked almonds to a food processor with 3 cups of filtered water.  

  4. Blend on high for around 5 minutes

  5. Sieve the mixture through a fine sieve at least twice, saving the nut pulp for another recipe(dog biscuits). if you have a nut bag or a fine cloth you can also use that.

  6. Pour into a air tight bottle and keep in the fridge! It should last in the fridge for 3-5 days.

As you already noticed, it’s far more water intensive than making oat milk. But hey! If you want almond milk, I can’t stop you. Just to make you feel better, wanted to remind you that it is far less cruel and environmentally damaging than dairy milk.

Please be aware the next time you see an article about how “nut milks” are bad blah blah blah. Just remember that article is probably funded by the dairy industry.

If you’d like to see on how to reuse the nut pulp for some vegan dog biscuit recipe please check out our other post.
