  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine 3 cups water, chia seeds, and walnuts in a bowl; stir to prevent clumps from forming. Let soak for 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Pour chia seed mixture into a blender; add 1 cup water, tahini, honey, and vanilla extract. Cover and blend until smooth; add reminding water.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If I am using this recipe for soup, etc., I only add a bit of honey (milk is too sweet) and leave out the vanilla.
  • Toasted sesame tahini can be used instead of raw, if desired.
