Almond-Tahini Shake

Oxmoor House
Yield Serves 2 (serving size: 3/4 cup)
This shake tastes like sesame candy because of the tahini--a thin, ground-up sesame seed paste that can be used in the same manner as peanut butter. Look for tahini made of hulled toasted sesame seeds for the best flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (roasted sesame seed paste)
  • 2 whole pitted Medjool dates, chopped
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk dairy-free frozen dessert
  • Sesame candy (optional)
