View Full Version : How do you make sesame milk?

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm new here and have yet to even start thinking about making my own seed and nut milks. Someone suggested sesame milk to curb sugar cravings and I want to try it, but don't know where to begin! Thanks.

Well the quick 'n' easy way would be to use tahini. 2 c. water, 1-2 T. tahini, and 1-2 T. sweetener (honey, agave nectar) should do the trick. You can do the same thing with almond butter, cashew butter, etc. (I like almond).
Or you could soak sesame seeds for a few hours to a day and blend those with water & sweetener instead, but I'm unsure of what volume of dry seed you'd use.

I make it without sweetener, I love it bitter.
I have a nut milk maker, I'm afraid I don't have a clue how to make it without. :(
With the nut milk make you use 100g seeds with 1l water.

it depends on if you like it sweet or bitter, thick or thin
but 2 cups water
3 T sesame seeds
2 T honey or agave or 2 dates
blend in high speed blender until smooth,
if you use unhulled sesame seeds they are more bitter, and you may need more sweetener,
if you use hulled sesame seeds they are not so bitter but not as good for you.
then strain in a nut milk bag, and drink
or you can use the tahini as stated above.

3 T sesame seeds
Should sesame seeds be soaked before blending?

Nope! unless you want to, but I don't
I only soak
but you can soak any or all nuts and seeds, it's just up to you, I took several classes, and they taught that some seeds and nuts NEED to be soaked to release the enzyme inhibitors, so we could digest them properly, other nuts and seeds didn't NEED to be soaked, but you certainly could if you needed them to be softer for a recipe.
so I only soak the ones that need to be soaked.
