After trying store-bought black sesame milk and discovering its nutritional benefits, we were inspired to create our own homemade version. Black sesame seeds are naturally packed with iron, calcium, and magnesium, making this dairy-free milk a nutritious choice. With just three simple ingredients, you can easily make this nutty and refreshing drink at home. Let’s dive into the recipe and enjoy the process of creating this delightful beverage!

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

  • Black Sesame Seeds – These are small, dark seeds with a rich and nutty flavor. They are packed with nutrients like iron, calcium, magnesium, and healthy fats. They are the key ingredient that gives black sesame soymilk its distinctive taste. If you can’t find black sesame seeds, you can use regular white sesame seeds instead. However, note that the flavor and color of the soymilk will differ slightly.
  • Soybeans – Soybeans are the main ingredient in soymilk. They are legumes that are rich in protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. They provide a creamy texture and contribute to the nutritional profile of the soymilk. If you prefer a different type of milk, you can substitute soybeans with other beans or nuts, such as almonds, cashews, or oats. However, keep in mind that the flavor and texture of the soymilk will change accordingly.
  • Water – Water is added to the mixture to create the desired consistency and to help blend the ingredients together. It serves as the base for the soymilk.
  • Sugar – Sugar is a common sweetener used in recipes like black sesame soymilk. It adds sweetness and enhances flavor. Some substitutes for sugar include honey, maple syrup, stevia, coconut sugar and brown sugar. Experiment with these alternatives to suit your taste preferences.

Remember, the substitutions may affect the taste, texture, and nutritional composition of the black sesame soymilk, so experiment and adjust accordingly to achieve the desired results.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Soak soybeans overnight before preparing the soymilk. This helps soften the beans and aids in blending and extracting their flavors.
  • After blending, you can strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer to remove any remaining solids and achieve a smoother consistency. This step is optional, depending on your preference for texture.
  • Adjusting consistency: If the soymilk is too thick, you can add more water and blend again until you reach the desired consistency. Similarly, if it’s too thin, you can blend in more soaked soybeans or black sesame seeds.
  • Add sweeteners gradually and taste as you go. Adjust the amount of sweetener based on your personal preference. Remember, you can always add more but can’t take it away, so start with a smaller amount and add more if needed.
  • Keep the black sesame soymilk refrigerated in a sealed container. It is best consumed within a few days. Shake well before serving, as natural separation may occur.
  • Shake or stir before serving: If the soymilk separates after being stored, simply give it a good shake or stir before serving to recombine the ingredients.

Remember, these tips are general guidelines, and you can adjust them based on your personal preferences and dietary needs. Enjoy the process of creating your own homemade black sesame soymilk and have fun exploring different variations and flavors.

MADE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS

Black sesame soymilk can be made ahead of time and stored for later use. Here are some instructions on how to make it ahead and store it properly:

  1. Prepare the black sesame soymilk as per the recipe instructions.
  2. Allow the soymilk to cool completely before storing it. This helps maintain its freshness and flavor.
  3. Once cooled, transfer the black sesame soymilk to a clean, airtight container or glass jar.

STORAGE & REHEATING

Storage: Transfer the black sesame soymilk to a clean, airtight container or glass jar. Ensure the container is tightly sealed to prevent air and moisture from entering. Store the soymilk in the refrigerator, where it can stay fresh for up to 2 to 3 days. Keep the container away from strong-smelling foods to avoid any flavor transfer. Label the container with the date of preparation for easy reference.

Reheating: If you prefer to consume the black sesame soymilk warm, gently heat it on the stovetop or in the microwave. On the stovetop, pour the desired amount of soymilk into a small saucepan. Heat it over low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches your desired temperature. Be careful not to boil or overheat it to prevent curdling. In the microwave, transfer the desired amount of soymilk to a microwave-safe container. Heat it in short intervals, stirring in between, until it reaches the desired temperature. Microwave power levels vary, so adjust the timing accordingly.

Important Tips:

  1. Before consuming reheated black sesame soymilk, stir it well to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed. Separation may occur during storage, and mixing will help restore the consistency.
  2. Do not reheat the soymilk multiple times or let it sit at room temperature for extended periods. This can affect its taste, texture, and safety.
  3. It’s always best to consume the reheated soymilk promptly to enjoy its optimal flavor and quality.

By following these storage and reheating tips, you can keep your black sesame soymilk fresh and enjoy it warm whenever desired.
