Ligia’s Kitchen: How to Make Raw Sesame Milk

See how easy it is to make raw sesame milk at home, in mere minutes, in our latest episode of Ligia’s Kitchen! Sesame milk is full of calcium and is incredibly delicious. The wonderful thing about the calcium in it is that it’s readily absorbed by our bodies, unlike the artificial calcium added into various other beverages.

Ligia’s Kitchen: How to Open and Clean a Pomegranate

In this new year, we thought we’d do something a bit different for Ligia’s Kitchen, and we started to create how-to videos that are kitchen and cooking-related. They’re shorter in length than our regular episodes, they’re right to the point and they show you, clearly, how to do certain things.

Our first installment is this, a video which demonstrates that opening a pomegranate without staining your hands or your clothes is possible and easy.

Ligia’s Kitchen: The Elixir of Youth

Here’s the latest episode from Ligia’s Kitchen: a fun mocktail we call “The Elixir of Youth“. We had a ton of fun making this video, as you’ll be able to see when you watch it and see the outtakes. The reason the presentation’s different is because YouTube and My Drunk Kitchen asked us to make a video that presents a “post-apocalyptic” cocktail/mocktail. We did our own twist on it and we hope you’ll enjoy it!

The recipe is presented at the end of the video, or you can find it in the video description on YouTube.

Ligia’s Kitchen: Glazed Chocolate Orange Brownies

This the 22nd episode of Ligia’s Kitchen, and let me just say this first: yum!🙂

This Christmas, make super-tasty raw chocolate brownies with juicy, honey-dipped orange peels, glazed with thick, creamy chocolate syrup! It’s a decadent holiday dessert that’s perfect for Christmas or New Year’s!

The video is exactly 3 minutes long because we were challenged to edit a full recipe (that would normally take 7-10 minutes) to that length by Chow.com. It was a challenge issued to the YouTube Next Chef winners. We met the challenge dead on and walked away unscathed, albeit a bit dazed!🙂 While the video fits within the 3-minute space, it would do much better as a 4-5 minute video.

Here’s the recipe!

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 cups raw cocoa powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tbsp cocoa butter
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp mesquite

Brownie Mixture:

  • 4 cups flour from sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup orange peels, diced and dipped in honey

Decoration:

  • coconut flakes
  • almond slivers
  • golden raisins
  • anise stars
  • chocolate glaze
  • pomegranate

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Ligia’s Kitchen: Raw Eggnog and Gingerbread Cookies

Ligia came up with an amazing Christmas recipe, another of her culinary masterpieces: raw eggnog and gingerbread cookies. This is the perfect two-for-one Christmas recipe, because it uses the same ingredients and the same process to give you two wonderful holiday desserts, saving you precious time during this busy time of the year.

This episode is highly recommended for those interested in healthy alternatives to traditional eggnog, which is loaded with unhealthy calories and fats.

This time around, I’m in front of the cameras and the episode is a bit more interactive than usual as a result. I’m interested to see what you think of it once you’ve watched it.

Enjoy and bon appetit!
