This decadent vegan smoothie is flavored with vanilla and rich sesame tahini with a sprinkling of cinnamon. The perfect summer treat.
Happy Sunday! I'm not going to say a whole lot today, but I wanted to quickly jump in and share a smoothie recipe that I've been hanging on to for a while. This actually turned out to be one of my favorite smoothies ever, and as a result I've been kicking myself week after week upon realizing that I've, yet again, forgotten to post the recipe.
Anyhow, you'll definitely want this one in your collection as the weather warms up. It's rich, luxurious, and a bit on the exotic side. Think sesame halva meets vanilla milkshake. Enjoy!

- 2 tbsp. tahini
- ½ tsp. vanilla extract
- agave or maple syrup to taste optional

How can you have been keeping a tahini milkshake from us? I am so having this tomorrow for breakfast!

Looooove this idea! I'm fresh out of tahini, but I'm going to pick some up and be sure to try this on the weekend. Yum!
I am making this immediately.
