Aside from the fact that I love everything black sesame (ice cream, mochi, bagels, soups, etc.) - I love this dark dreary smoothie for rainy days. And a while back, charcoal has a moment - and I’m just saying’, black sesame needs to replace it. Activated charcoal should never be consumed in the way it was promoted - it’s a medical grade ingredients that prevent absorption of toxins (or anything that you ate with it or previous to it), so needless to say… that was a dangerous trend.
We can get our fix for jet black smoothies another way - BLACK SESAME! Black sesame seeds are high in magnesium, protein, and calcium - this smoothie contains almost 10 grams of protein!
So, not only are they healthy, but they are bomb tasting, too.
BLACK SESAME + COCONUT SMOOTHIE
1 Frozen Banana
1/2 cup black sesame tahini - or black sesame cereal - or black sesame seeds
1-2 cups Coconut Milk
3 tbs Local Maple Syrup *you can sub this for honey, sugar, etc
*blend + add sesame and coconut on top + serve*
I’ve linked all of the ingredients below - my favorite way to make this is with Black Tahini because you can use the tahini as you would in any other recipe, it’s shelf stable, easy to use and it’s pretty :)
