High Calcium Sesame Seed and Fig Milk

By :Helen Rose 0 comments
High Calcium Sesame Seed and Fig Milk


Sesame seeds make a great vegan milk that is high in calcium. This dairy free milk recipe goes so well with some cinnamon to bring out the earthy flavors of sesame.  This recipe includes figs to sweeten and add even more calcium to your plant-based milk.

Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium. One tablespoon of sesame seeds provides 87.80 milligrams (mg) of calcium.

Figs are a good source of bone-friendly minerals including calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Figs are especially rich in calcium, with some studies suggesting they contain 3.2 times more than other fruits.

You can also leave the milk thick and make a pudding.


  • 1 cup / 130g Sesame seeds
  • 3 cups / 700ml Water
  • 3 or 4 Turkish or Black Mission Figs (soak in water overnight)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Vanilla (optional)
  • a pinch of Salt

1. Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend them till totally smooth.

2. Lay a double layer of cheesecloth or a nut milk bag over the mouth of a large mason jar or another large container into which you can strain the liquid. Hold the cheesecloth or nut milk bag in place with a rubber band by slipping the rubber band over the cloth, and around the mouth of the container.

3. Pour the nut milk through the cheesecloth or nut milk bag, and into the container. You may need to work in batches. Allow it to strain for 1-2 hours. You can compost or save the pulp for a raw recipe, or discard it. Transfer the seed milk to an airtight container. It will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
