Yes, you read quite right. The milk is not coming only from the farm animals. It can also be produced in your own kitchen using natural seeds, nuts or fruit. Sesame seeds are a rich source of plant-based calcium and make a delicious, flavorful dairy-free milk which is especially good for pregnant and nursing mothers. The best part is that these home-made milk are not only good for drinking cold, but also for making healthy home-made hot chocolate. The kids will love it.
This sesame seed vegetarian-milk recipe is so simple and easy to make, that you will forget about buying an animal and other kinds of factory-made milk.
You can drink these home-made milk, especially in the morning as a substitute for animal milk. It will save you time in cooking and clean the mess, but also you are helping your digestive system. Our human body cannot efficiently use the calcium from sesame seeds as they are consumed in their natural form. But when these seeds are crushed with a blender, all the calcium and nutritive values are released into the water, ready to be consumed as they come in our stomach. Forget the calcium supplements and protein powders. This is the best way for giving the needed quantities of calcium in our bodies.
Just put 4 tablespoons of raw sesame seed in your blender and add 400 milliliters of water in it. Blend it on high for 30-60 seconds, depending on how powerful your blender is or until the mixture is up-right. Strain your milk through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, reserving the milk. You can use the sesame pulp in raw cakes and cookies, or as filler for cooked cakes and cookies. If the sesame milk is too bitter for your taste, just add 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup.
You can store in a glass jar or bottle, sealed in the fridge for 2-3 days.
