Tahini Hot Chocolate
Updated: Feb 21, 2022
We cook with tahini, bake with tahini, incorporate it into sweet and savory dishes, and we also drink tahini! we blend tahini into our smoothie, top our coffee with sesame milk (a milk alternative beverage, available in Israeli grocery stores), add a spoonful of tahini paste to our espresso, and mix it into hot chocolate for a halvah-like (not overly sweet, though) taste.
2 cups (480 ml) unsweetened almond milk or milk of your choice
4 Tablespoon (60 gr) tahini paste
60 gr bittersweet chocolate (70% cacao), chopped
1 Tabelspoon sesame seeds
Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a hot skillet. Remove and set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk and tahini.
Add in the chocolate, whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
Pour into serving cups and top with the toasted sesame seeds.
Spice your hot chocolate up with a pinch of ground cinnamon or cardamom (add it into the saucepan, when you cook the milk with the tahini), or top it with Sweet Tahini's sweet dukkah.
