READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by rawgoddess

A beautiful shake to start your day. No soy, nor dairy, and the taste is creamy goodness that will sustain you all morning. Sesame seeds are a great source of calcium.

Wonderful unusual drink! Luckily I had black sesame seeds, bought in bulk in China Town in Amsterdam, so I could make this exactly as suggested, and it turned out great. Thanks for posting, I'll make this again!
