After arriving in Oahu from Maui, Great Minds think alike. I brought Suzanne Sprouted Black Lentils, and she surprised me with a delicious drink. Watch to find out what!
Here is a link for how to sprout black sesame seeds. Getting viable seeds can be an issue. Suzanne said Sprouts Alive were the ones she found that will sprout. Now read how at Sprout People.
Soak 2/3 cup of seeds in cool water for 2-8 hours.
Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.
Rinse very thoroughly.
Keep your Sprouter in a relatively low light location.
Rinse and Drain thoroughly – with cool water every 8-12 hours.
Harvest when your seeds have tiny Roots, and eat or Refrigerate your crop.
HOW TO MAKE THE MILK
You Will Need:
1 cup sprouted and rinsed sesame seeds
4 cups filtered water
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sweetener of choice is optional…. 1 Tbsp raw honey or high-grade maple syrup or 2 soaked pitted dates, a dash of stevia, or monk fruit.
Optional: Pinch of Himalayan salt or high-quality sea salt
How to Make It:
Add 1 cup of water to blender and blend for two minutes, til sesame seeds are pulverized. Then add the other 3 cups of milk and mix. Strain through nut milk bag or cheesecloth into a bowl.
If there is pulp, you can discard or compost pulp or save to use in other recipes.
This delicious healthy milk will store in the refrigerator a few days. Just shake before serving. (You can heat it before drinking as well.)
