Black Sesame Milk with HeShouWu
This is an ultra yin and blood nourishing drink that supports energy and longevity while benefiting skin and hair health.
Black sesame seeds contain antioxidants and tocopherols, the main component in Vitamin E (hello juicy skin!) They also contain magnesium, calcium and trace minerals such as copper and zinc. 💫
HeShouWu is also a great source of trace minerals and antioxidants, and the two of these together is a tasty nutrient dense combo!
1.5 cup black sesame seeds, soaked overnight and drained
3-4 cups water
2 tsp of honey (or more depending on your taste preference)
2-3 dates, pitted and chopped roughly
2 tsp HeShouWu powder
Place water in blender with drained sesame seeds, honey, dates and salt and puree until smooth and creamy. Strain in a cheesecloth or nut milk bag.
Shake up before serving as some sediment might fall to the bottom.
