I understand this is very high in calcium...how do you make it? Do you have to soak the seeds??? Thank you!

I often mix sesame seeds with something else (usually almonds) to make the mylk as I find the taste of sesame on its own overpowering. So I get about 3/4 of a cup of almonds and add a few tablespoons of sesame seeds and soak them overnight, then drain and rinse them. I use a fine sieve or the sesame seeds go through the holes! Then I stick them in the blender with about 3 cups of water and blend until its as smooth as I can get it, then strain it. You can then blend the mylk with a sweetener and do whatever you want with it!

You don't get calcium from eating calcium, your body makes calcium from eating foods containing magnesium & silica. But yeah sesame milk RAWKS! I like black sesame even better.

I use about 2 cups unsoaked sesame seed and a full blender of water, touch of sea salt, agave, vanilla----blend away. You can save the pulp if you want to make "baked goods" - depends on my mood if I want to make crackers, cookies.... Sesame milk does separate to swirl it up before you pour. per Raw Food Real World sesame seed and brazil nuts don't require soaking. Makes for a quick fix.
