Vegan Black Sesame Milkshakes

"To really bring out the nutty quality, it’s important to give the black sesame seeds a gentle toast before you pulverize them into black sand. This step is equally important if you don’t want to serve your milkshakes with a side of dental floss. (I may have failed on the hygiene front in the past, but a toothy black studded smile is a lose lose.) In addition to the frozen banana, this milkshake gets extra creamy from a good dose of coconut milk. Make sure you get the full-fat version—it’s worth it for the thick layer of coconut cream on the top of the can.

Finally, if you want to add a little extra something something on the sesame front, I highly recommend a tablespoon of tahini. This paste is made with white sesame seeds, but it brings out that sesame flavor in a way that hand ground sesame seeds never could. It also happens to be a little bitter, so you may want to add an extra dash of maple syrup if using. You’re in charge of your own sweet tooth."

Ingredients

For the Vegan Black Sesame Milkshakes

  • 1/4  Cup  black sesame seeds, toasted
  • 15  Ounces  coconut milk, full fat
  • Banana, frozen
  • 2  Tablespoons  maple syrup
  • 1  Tablespoon  tahini (optional)

Directions

For the Vegan Black Sesame Milkshakes

In a small skillet, toast the black sesame seeds over medium-low heat until fragrant. Be very careful not to burn these guys - the darker the nut/seed, the easier it is to char further.

Transfer the sesame seeds to a small food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles a fine black sand.

Add the coconut milk, banana, maple syrup and tahini, if using. Puree until very smooth.

Transfer to a jar or cup(s), garnish with more black sesame and enjoy!
