The Tahini Tantaliser

The Tahini Tantaliser

A big warm hug of nut free love!

“Tahini? Tahini!” I hear you say.  Yes that’s right, tahini!

I think in the UK tahini is very much an underrated food source, and often thought of as being used in savoury dishes, but in my eyes it is a bonified superfood.

  • It has 20% complete protein, making it a higher source of protein than most nuts.
  • It contains a whopping 426mg of calcium per 100g, which is over 1/2 of your RDA!
  • It aids in liver detoxification.
  • It’s high in B vitamins and vitamin E.
  • It helps to prevent anaemia, promote cell growth and even maintain muscle tone.
  • It’s rich in minerals such as phosphorus, potassium and iron.
  • It’s great for your skin (always a bonus!)

This is definitely the quickest and easiest Paleo post-workout dessert ever and is perfect for kids too. (My baby even loves this!)

Ingredients:

1/2 pear roughly chopped
