It's strawberry season and I love strawberries! They are both sweet and tart; they are rich in nutrients and well, this drink delivers both the sweet, the tart and the zing factor, much thanks to the delicious black sesame seeds!
Most people do not realize how great are the black sesame seeds but here are some facts on them -
Why black sesame seeds?
1. Black sesame seeds are powerhouse of nutrients - fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium, vit B, and phosphorus.
2. They have also been considered as anti-cancer - they contain sesamin, a compound that protects the liver from free radicals.
3. The difference between white sesame and black? White have their hulls removed whereas black sesame have their hulls intact.
4. Fiber and unsaturated fatty acids - Due to these two, they help in digestive issues and help relieve constipation.
5. Calcium, Zinc and Magnesium - help in reducing blood pressure (magnesium-zinc) and help in osteoporosis (calcium).
1. Organic Black Sesame Seeds - 1 Tablespoon
2. Organic fresh or frozen strawberries or mix berries
