Grab your camera - this trendy dish is a tasty dessert that is rumoured to have numerous health benefits. 



  • 1/2 cup roasted black sesame seeds
  • 1 415 milliliter can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup activated charcoal powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  1. In a blender/food processor, add sesame seeds and process until dry and powdery in texture. Do not over process, as this will release the oils in the sesame, turning it into a butter.
  2. To a bowl, add condensed milk, sesame powder, activated charcoal powder, and salt. Whisk until combined.
  3. In a stand mixer, whisk cream until medium peaks form.
  4. Add approximately 1/2 cup of whipped cream to sesame mixture, and mix with a spoon to combine. Then pour this mixture back into remaining whipped cream, and gently fold until no more white streaks of cream can be seen.
  5. Pour into a container or lined loaf tin, cover, and freeze for six to eight hours or until completely frozen. Enjoy!
