Almond Sesame Mylk
« on: June 26, 2009, 09:12:41 AM »
In the Vitamix, blend:
1 cup sesame seeds
2 cups almonds
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened raw coconut
about 6 dates, couple more if you'd like
1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
1 tsp vanilla extract (mine is not raw right now)
fill the blender to almost the top with water

Blend on high until it looks and sounds finely processed. Yes, I said sounds. You can hear the difference when it's done. The seeds and nuts aren't rattling around. Be careful not to get it hot. The vitamix can heat things up if left on high for up to 4 minutes.

Pour about a cup at a time of mixture into a nut mylk bag over a pitcher. I use paint strainer bags that we bought at the hardware store. These aren't organic, but they're huge and cheap. Sometimes I skimp in some areas to be able to buy things that are more important to me, like a case of organic peaches! :)

Anyway, squeeze the mylk through the bag. Once you have your mylk, you can add more water if you'd like it thinner. You can also add more dates directly into the mylk and blend if you want it sweeter. You don't have to strain again if you do this.

Store in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. This will last about 3 days and still have a fresh taste.

SAVE THE PULP. See the recipe for ICED COOKIES!
