So, this was one of those mornings where I was filling the blender up with the ingredients, and the jar of tahini caught my eye and I ended up with a really delicious concoction.
It so happens that sesame seeds – the main ingredient in tahini; contain important B Vitamins…B1, B2, B3, B5, as well as a great supply of calcium. They also have beneficial trace elements like copper, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and manganese, as well as both omega 3 & 6 that improve the health of the brain. And let’s not forget zinc, a powerful immune strengthening nutrient that can be added to smoothies to fight colds and flus.
Zinc is an essential mineral that plays an important role in immune function. It is a nutrient that many people are bordeline deficient in. Zinc deficiency increases susceptibility to infection.
So check out this tahini smoothie recipe. It’s just what the doctor ordered for the winter season!
