Hey friends— how are you doing? I know the world has gone a bit crazy out there and that we all have legitimate reasons to feel uneasy or anxious right now. I hope you’re healthy, home, and reminding yourself to take plenty of deep breaths throughout the day.

 

It’s been tough to be quarantined alone so far away from my family right now, but I’m keeping busy with work, drinking lots of tea and coffee, cooking the veggies I can find, and snuggling a little extra with my doggie. I’m thankful that I work remotely and that I still have a few revenue streams to get me through for now. It does make me sad to see what’s happening in the restaurant world–an industry near and dear to my heart. Hopefully, the coming weeks will show a significant flattening of the curve and our local businesses can have a fighting chance to stay in business.

Tahini is one of the few things I have here in the house to get creative with so it’s been making its way into everything–and I mean everything. Coffee, brownies, salads, chicken, cauliflower rice, sweet potatoes. I don’t know how I’m going to make it past this quarantine after I run out–that’ll be a sad day for sure.

What is Tahini?

Tahini is a magical substance that I like to put in literally everything I cook. And now also everything that I drink. It’s a paste made out of sesame seeds and it’s basically liquid gold. Imagine a nut butter that tastes of toasted sesame with an umami-like flavor. Are you drooling yet?

What You Need to Make Tahini Hazelnut Iced Coffee:

  • Strong chilled Coffee
  • Honey (or sweetener of choice)
  • Hot Water (to dissolve tahini)
  • Coconut milk (or milk of choice.)
  • Ice Cubes (unless you want hot coffee)

 

Tips for making Tahini Hazelnut Iced Coffee:

    • Use good, strong iced coffee that is pre-chilled, or a coldbrew (just make sure it’s hazelnut.)
    • Add a pinch of salt if your tahini is salt-free. It helps boost the flavor!
    • Use a full-fat coconut milk or a creamy cashew milk.
