Looking for some milk alternatives that are off the beaten path? Then you’ve come to the right place. Sesame seed milk is where it is at, and nobody seems to be talking about how delicious it is. If you’re interested in finding out how easy and tasty this recipe is, then keep on reading. Today, we are talking about how to make homemade sesame milk.

The Benefits of Sesame Seeds

First, let me start off by listing some of the amazing health benefits that sesame seeds have. They have calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber.

Sesame seeds contain anti-cancer properties because they are full of antioxidants.

Let’s also not forget about the compound phytate, which fights against free radicals and the effects that they have on the body.

The fiber in the seeds also benefits your heart. Not only does it work in aiding your digestion, but it also cleans out the LDL cholesterol found in your arteries and veins.

This means they can help prevent strokes and heart attacks. Who knew?

What’s The Difference Between Black & White?

There are some slight differences between black and white sesame seeds to note. The black seeds have a more bitter flavor, perfect for making sesame oil. The white sesame seeds are sweeter and known to have a nuttier flavor. They add the perfect flavor balance to this particular milk recipe.

Do I Need to Soak These Bad Boys? ?

The beauty of sesame seeds is that they do not need soaking to have a creamy outcome. If you have a compromised digestive system, then soaking them overnight might be a great idea. It’s not mandatory though, and that is not the case with other kinds of nut milk… so that’s a win! With this recipe, the sesame seeds only need blending on high speed with a few extra ingredients and you are good to go.


    Adjust Servings:
    5 tbsp White Sesame Seeds
    2 cups Water
    1 tbsp Honey
    ½ tsp (optional) Vanilla

    If you want to make your sesame milk extra special, consider adding a hint of cinnamon, some dates, or almond extract.

    How to make. Steps


    Wash and dry the sesame seeds


    Grind sesame seeds

    Grind sesame seeds until they are a fine powder (I use a coffee grinder, and this works great to get them to the right consistency).



    In a food processor blend the sesame seeds and the water (you can also use a high powered blender if that will work better for you).
    Add your sweeteners such as honey, dates, or maple syrup.



    Pour the mixture through a cheesecloth, into a large bowl (this will strain out any large pieces and make your milk nice and creamy).


    Stir in your vanilla if desired

    How Do You Store Sesame Milk?

    Sesame seed milk will last in the fridge between 2-3 days (there are no preservatives!), but I’m sure you will find it will be gone before that! My family loves this recipe, and it’s so easy to make such a nutrient-dense treat!

    Extra Notes:

    This milk would be great in a bowl of cereal, a cup of coffee, or even in a morning smoothie. The possibilities are endless. If you have a dairy intolerance and are looking for a subtle, creamy milk alternative, give this a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised.
