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)
