Crafted with Middle Eastern most nutritious pantry staples
Staying true to our roots, we combine Middle Eastern plant-based essentials to create mildly sweet nutrient-rich desserts with exceptional taste. We strongly believe in food’s power to unite people, forge connections, and spread joy. We’re committed to creating indulgent sweets using all-natural superior ingredients, providing you with an outstanding flavor experience while offering you a glimpse into other places’ traditions and values.
Tahini is the base ingredient for both our ice cream and fudge. It's naturally smooth and creamy, high in healthy fats, and a good source of B vitamins and essential minerals such as calcium, and iron. Visit our journal to learn more about tahini.
Oat milk has a neutral flavor, and smooth and thick texture, which make it a perfect base for a nondairy ice cream. Its high dietary fiber content keeps you full and satisfied.
Our fudge is lightly sweetened with powdered dates (also known as date sugar), and dates are blended into one of our ice cream flavors. Besides being naturally sweet, dates are high in fiber and important minerals such as copper, potassium, iron, and magnesium.
We blend unsweetened chocolate with tahini, to create our popular fudge (we have been selling it since our early days at the farmers' markets). Cocoa is rich in antioxidant compounds, which reduce inflammation and improve blood flow to the brain.
Swirled into our fudge and ice cream, nuts and seeds are packed with plant protein, dietary fiber, heart-healthy fats (including omega-3s), and essential vitamins and minerals.
Spices make our fudge and ice cream more flavorful while boosting your health. Cardamom and cinnamon may help with inflammation, and of all spices, cardamom is especially high in minerals like magnesium and zinc.
Before founding Sweettahini, Hila Krikov worked as a designer in the fashion industry. In the summer of 2009, she moved with her family thousands of miles away from her home in Israel, to Lubbock, TX. Homesick, and with plenty of free time, Hila turned to the kitchen to recreate her childhood flavors, that will provide the family with a deep sense of home. When the family later moved to the Northeast, Hila started to sell her tahini-centered creations in Boston area farmers' markets, sharing her beloved homeland's sweets with local consumers.
