Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and manganese, but they’re also an amazing source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, and selenium, so why the heck not make milk from them I say! This is a great alternative for those not able to have nuts too because you still end up with a deliciously creamy result. I have to admit this isn’t a milk I put into tea, it seems too precious to dilute, and it does have a tendency to split, but straight up in all its raw glory is the best option, so that includes pouring it over cereal or having it in smoothies too. You will need a nut milk bag for the best result with this recipe.
Makes approximately 700ml
1 cup organic sesame seeds
4 cups filtered water
2 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 tsp salt
Add all the ingredients to a high powered blender and blitz until smooth. Place your nut milk bag into a glass jug and pour milk into it. Gather up the top of the nut milk bag and squeeze the milk into the jug until you are only left with pulp.
Rinse the nut milk bag straight away, it’s way easier to clean than if you leave it to dry out. And fresh sesame milk will be your reward.
