Berries and tahini blend beautifully to make this simple and protein + healthy fat + fibre + antioxidant-rich breakfast of champions!
Tahini is made by grinding sesame seeds. The unhulled paste is more nutrient-rich since it is made from intact seeds. Tahini is loaded with vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron. It is easy to digest; a great source of protein and healthy fat; and rich in anticancer, heart-healthy plant lignans as well as methionine, which helps with liver detoxification.
For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:
1 1/2 cups frozen berries (I used a combination of blueberries and blackberries)
1 to 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut water, adjusted to desired consistency
2 to 3 Tbsp tahini, adjusted to taste (or sub nut or seed butter of choice)
Lakanto monkfruit sweetener, pure stevia, maple syrup, or raw honey (nonvegan), adjusted to taste (optional)
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and raw cacao nibs as desired & serve.
