In most recipes that call for regular almonds, you can use blanched almonds instead. But if a recipe calls for blanched almonds, it’s usually because the final product needs the smoother texture, flavor, or light color that blanched almonds provide.

Blanched almonds can be used in ways similar to raw cashews – blended with a liquid to make creams, milks, sauces, and dressings.
