This week, I'm mixing up my usual raw sprouted almond milk with a seed, sesame. As I’m on a completely sugar free cleanse at the moment (literally only Stevia), I left my milk plain. But for those who are eating natural sugars, I suggest adding some dates, vanilla and sea salt into the mix.
I’m excited to explore this new milk, as there is so much you can make with it as your base such as ice cream, popsicles and amazing smoothies.
