Chocolate Tahini Smoothie Recipe

Tahini is a delicious paste made from ground hulled sesame seeds that have been toasted.

  • STep-by-step InSTRuctions

Prep time: 5 mins​

Cook time: 5 mins

Total time: 10 mins

Serves: 1 glass

To Make the Tahini Paste:

  • Place the sesame seeds in a heavy-duty skillet and heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir continuously to prevent the seeds from burning. Alternatively, you can toast the sesame seeds in 350-degree preheat oven until they're lightly browned and fragrant. When properly toasted, remove the sesame seeds from oven or heat and set aside to cool completely.
  • Grind the toasted and cooled sesame seeds in a powerful blender until they form a crumbly paste.
  • Add olive oil and continue processing the seeds until you achieve a thick and smooth paste. Feel free to add more oil until you get your desired consistency.
  • Transfer the tahini paste to an airtight jar or container and refrigerate. The paste can remain fresh in the fridge for up to a month.

Now for the Smoothie:

  • Blend all of the listed smoothie ingredients including 30ml of the just prepared tahini paste in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. For best results, add one ingredient at a time as they appear on the list and blend thoroughly after each addition.
  • Transfer the smoothie to tall glasses. Top with a bit of cacao nibs and desiccated coconut, and serve on a tray with candy bars and nuts on the side.

Note: Chocolate tahini smoothie tastes best when fresh. So remember to serve immediately after making it!
