I recently discovered the use of tahini (sesame seeds ground into a cream) in smoothies. I suppose it makes sense being that I have been using nut butters for a while but it took me some time to come across this one.
That being said, I find that the balance between cruciferous greens and nut/seed butters in smoothies is a match made in heaven.
Therefore, I went ahead and created this smoothie bowl. Perfectly sweet and not too intense for a relaxing Sunday morning.
