(KAREN’S NOTES: double the vanilla, top with maple sea salt. you may need to double the almond milk (i use oat milk), this will depend on the tahini you use. the tahini will also change the flavor profile depending on its taste, so make sure to choose one you like (this last time i used SOOM brand and it’s quite floral.)
