1) NutNog
The base for this drink is creamy sesame milk.
We recommend using hulled sesame seeds to avoid any bitterness and speed the recipe-making time. (Unhulled seeds should be soaked and drained).

You will need a Vitamix or other high-speed blender and a net nutmilk bag to strain the the milk.

  • 2 cups hulled sesame seeds
  • 4 cups spring water
  • about 6 Medjool dates, pits removed (sweetness to taste)
  • cinammon
  • vanilla
  • nutmeg
  • ground cloves

pinch of Celtic sea salt  and/or several tablespoon of carob powder  

  1. Blend sesame seeds and half of water in Vitamix until seeds are thoroughly crushed.
  2. Add rest of water and complete blending.
  3. Mix liquid through a nutmilk bag (net or muslin), strain and squeeze out all the milk into a bowl.
  4. Put the strained sesame milk back into blender with dates and spices to taste. Blend.

It’s ready to drink!
