Homemade Sesame Milk + Sesame Milk Latte

I’ve had an entire jar of sesame seeds since well, forever. The other day one of my good friends asked me if I had ever tried sesame milk…when someone asks me something like that I definitely have to try it (providing it’s vegan of course!).

So this one is for you my nut-free friends! I’m a bit of a freak for vanilla so I’ve used quite a bit of vanilla powder here – feel free to reduce it if you’re not so much of a fan!

For the milk

  • 1 cup sesame seeds, soaked for 2-4 hours
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the latte

  • 1 shot espresso (I used this blend by Squaremile Coffee Roasters)
  • Sweetener to taste

  1. Drain and rinse the soaked sesame seeds. Add them to the blender.
  2. Add the 3 cups of water. Blend on high until smooth.
  3. Strain the milk through a nut milk bag into a large jug. Discard the sesame pulp. Rinse the blender.
  4. Pour the sesame milk back into the blender, add the vanilla powder, salt and maple syrup.
  5. Blend on high until everything is incorporated.
  6. Pour into a sealed container and store in the fridge.
  7. To make the latte, brew your espresso in your normal fashion. I use an Aeropress.
  8. If you do not own a milk steamer, add the milk to a saucepan and heat on medium until hot. You can either whisk or add the hot milk to a blender and blend for 30 seconds until frothy.
  9. Add the frothed milk to the espresso. Sweeten to taste!
