SHAKE SHACK BLACK SESAME SHAKE - EASY AND PLANT-BASED

We took some inspiration from Shake Shack and recreated their seasonal black sesame shake in a plant-based version for two reasons.

  1. Black sesame year-round

  2. Black sesame tastes good

So here’s the recipe! Enjoy!

BLACK SESAME VEGAN MILKSHAKE

Ingredients (single serving):

  • 1.5 tsp black sesame seeds

  • 1 cup of milk of your choice (we use Rippl Pea milk or half and half coconut cream and water)

  • 1 tbsp tahini

  • 1/2 frozen banana (if you don’t have a frozen banana you can do 1/2 a banana a a few ice cubes)

  • sweetener of your choice (it is sweet enough for us with the banana, but if you like a bit sweeter, we recommend date molasses or coconut sugar. It pairs well with the rich flavor of the black sesame seeds)

Method

  1. Grind the sesame seeds to a fine powder

  2. Add all ingredients to your blender and mix until well combined

  3. Enjoy!

We said it was easy!

If you want to increase the nutrition of this shake, here are a few things that you can add:

  • Hemp seeds - adds protein and fiber

  • Flax or chia seeds - be careful here. We recommend enjoying this immediately if you add these ingredients, otherwise you will have an amazing pudding the next day!

  • Cacao powder - super rich, provides energy, and takes the classic chocolate shake to new heights!
