Live Rite Shake: Sesame For Me!

Sesame protein shake smoothie

You know they’re good on bagels, but did you know that they’re good for you too? Packed with Vitamin-E, B-Vitamins and antioxidants, this super seed is an anti-inflammatory and can help to lower cholesterol & blood pressure.


  • 2 tablespoons ground sesame seeds
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla Liverite protein powder
  • 6 oz almond milk


1. Start by grinding your sesame seeds.  I used a mortar and pestle, but you can get by with a food processor.
2. Combine all ingredients on a blender and pulse until smooth. Enjoy!
