SESAME GINGER MILK by Yogi bhajan

This creamy and stimulating drink is nourishing to the nervous system and male sexual organs. Tasty, too.

1/4 cup ground sesame seeds or 1 Tbsp. raw sesame oil (not toasted)

2 Tbsp coarsely chopped fresh ginger root

12 oz. milk (dairy or non)

2 tsp. honey or maple syrup

Blend at high speed until smooth and frothy. Makes about 2 cups.

Charanpal’s Notes: The milk can be heated if you prefer it warm. This is great for men to drink after ejaculation so they don’t feel too fatigued or depleted. You can also blend in 1-2 soaked and pitted dates for extra virility.
