View Full Version : Sesame Seed Milk...
08-13-2005, 10:40 AM
I actually made some of the stuff, and liked it! I hadn't made a nut milk before, and I like soy milk, so I was surprised that this tasted an awful lot like it! It was good! So, those of you who haven't tried it; try it!
Plus, I think I read somewhere that sesame seeds have more calcium than milk. Am I right about that? And is it cup for cup?

You don't really have to worry about replacing the calcium in milk -- even without eating sesame seeds, live foods provide more usable calcium than any dairy product.
When I was eating raw homemade granola, I'd make a milk out of hemp seeds which was delicious and so fast and easy.
I'm glad you found a replacement for soy milk. That stuff is horrible for living bodies! :D

hmmm ok I will try it. I assume it's made the same way as almond milk? :confused:

well, i haven't made almond milk yet, but all i did was soak the sesame seeds for about 6 hours, add 1c water, 3 dates (less if you dont want it as sweet as i did!) and i blended it in the blender. then i strained it with a coffee filter. if you have a nut milk bag i recommend that since it took quite a while to strain, but i don't have anything like that.

I made some vanilla black sesame milk recently & was surprised that it was ok! Not great but definitly drinkable.

RawVeganMom-did you use hulled or unhulled? And I am curious to know if you found it bitter at all?

Isn't sesame milk marvelous?
You can use tahini to make it to, if you don't have a blender.
Just mis tahini with water, and some sweetener, wow!!!
Rawveganmom, I have the black sesame butter, that I love on apples, but I've never thought of making milk out of it, did it come out black? that would be soooooo cool, my granddaughters would love to drink black milk.
I'm gonna' try it,
YEP, black milk, totally weird tasting though, I think the black sesame tahini tastes like bacon (at least to me) it tastes, weird, a cool kind of weird though. IF that makes any sense.
Okay, I'm outta' hear, ramble, walk, ramble walk.

I think they are unhulled...? Yeah. They are! I think it tastes earthy not bitter... But I was reading about how people really benefit from adding more bitter foods to their diet, apparently it's really good for you in a lot of ways! I wonder if it would be good blended with a little honey & banana.... hmmmm...

I saw it posted, I believe it was here, that a person could go to a paint store and get a paint straining bag that works as well as a nut bag. Well I went to Home depot and for 98 cents I bought the paint staining bag and it worked great when I made a cashew cream for alfredo sauce. They didn't have a pull string but I found no worries with that. Just thought you might want to know about this option in case you didn't.
Peace and Blessings
