Fig Halvah (Sesame) Smoothie


"Open sesame"—the famous phrase from the Arabian Nights—reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity. 

Growing up, Halvah, (a ground sesame paste, fudge-like snack), was a huge treat in our household, and I've always loved the flavor and consistency. This smoothie is very reminiscent of  my favorite childhood treat.


Sesame Seed has a delicate, nutty flavor and is one of the oldest oilseed crops known. It was domesticated over 3000 years ago. Sesame oil and   Tahini Butter are the most popular products made from the sesame seed.

Fig Halvah Smoothie Ingredients
1 young Thai Coconut - water and meat ( or almond milk instead of water)
2 cups water (or water kefir, as needed)
2 bananas, frozen
3 - 4 kale leaves, or other greens
3 Tablespoons chia seeds
2 Tablespoons tahini butter
3 Tablespoons sesame seeds  (raw)
4 calmyra figs (or medjool dates or Smyrna figs)
1 1/2 Tablespoons cacao powder (or carob powder)
2 teaspoons maca powder (totally optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract   (3 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract)
ice as needed while blending


Directions
Blend all ingredients well. Add ice while blending.

Garnish with sesame seeds.

Drink Up and Enjoy!
