Sesame seeds are a great source of calcium, iron & magnesium & sesame milk is a delicious way of incorporating them into your diet. This milk is rich & creamy. It’s yummy on cereal or delicious as a beverage. If drinking it on its own you might want to jazz it up with some vanilla & maple syrup, & how about a sprinkling of cinnamon on top? You could make it into a chocolate milk with a couple of spoonfuls of cacao and 2 dates. The possibilities are endless! You can use whole raw sesame seeds or roasted and toasted seeds, which will give the milk a stronger flavour.
½ cup whole sesame seeds (soaked overnight)
2 cups water
¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pitted Medjool date
Options to jazz it up:
1 teaspoon Wild honey/Maple syrup
2 teaspoons cacao or carob powder
Soak the sesame seeds overnight or for 6-8 hours.
Rinse them & throw away the soaking water.
Blend with 2 cups of pure water in a high-powered blender for 1-2 minutes.
Strain through a nut milk bag or a large piece of cheesecloth.
Squeeze as much of the milk as possible through the cloth.
