Sesame Milk (calcium rich drink)

Ingredients:

2 tbsp of whole sesame seeds
4 dates
3 cups of water

Instructions:

Soak sesame seeds overnight. In the morning rinse them well and place them, with the dates and water into the blender and blend. Do not strain sesame milk since most of the calcium will be lost if you do.
Once complete, you can also use the milk as a base for smoothies.
Some of the benefits:
1 oz of whole sesame seeds contain 280mg of calcium. Calcium is vital for bone health, but it can also help with migraines and provide relief for PMS. Consuming sesame seeds can lower cholesterol, help prevent high blood pressure and also improve heart health. Sesame seeds are very rich in zinc, a mineral that has a positive effect on bone mineral density.
