Evergreen's ThoughtsBy evergreen
Rich, creamy, warm beverage with the taste of halva, and a great way to use the nut pulp.
Inspired by this recipe.
Shown pictured with individual halva. I used ma'amoul cookie molds, but they can be easily made by pressing into candy molds. :)
The second picture shows my favorite way to use the pulp from this recipe. simply dehydrate (right in the nut milk bag!) and use as a granola type of crumb topping. You can add some more sweetener and cardamom or cinnamon if you like. This plate has banana, strawberries, and chopped figs, sprinkled with the ‘halva granola’ and an extra dash of cardamom. :)
I use a fine mesh strainer to strain sesame seeds. :) You can find this type of strainer in larger stores. I have a really small one for recipes like this, and a medium size for others.
