Homemade Sesame Milk

I ran out of soy milk, and I’m a bit tired of homemade oat milk at the moment. I happened to have a big jar of sesame seeds in the cupboard (no idea why). I know that we can make “milk” from pretty much any seeds, nuts and grains… So.⁣

I soaked 1/2 cup sesame seeds overnight, drained the water, added 1.5 cups fresh water, with a couple of dates and a pinch of salt. Blend for a minute in and strained through a nut milk bag.

⁣It couldn’t be easier – and it’s SO good in coffee!!
