“I needed an alternate calcium source for my daughter and found that one cup of natural sesame seed milk has a lot of calcium in it, depending on the seed you use it can be as much as 3+ times the amount found in milk. For more information on sesame seeds go to using the Google search engine. For those that like a sweeter milk, add 1 Tablespoon honey or 2-3 dates and 1/4 teaspoon salt optional. Myself I prefer the natural taste of plain sesame seed milk. If you want to make a nut milk, follow the same process with your desired nut. Add your sweetener and salt just before blending.”
