黒胡麻アイスクリーム (Black Sesame Ice Cream)

My friends said I am very “old school” about foods :p
I don’t know why they say that, maybe because I am not really into sweet foods. But I should tell you, I am a big fans of chocolate and ice cream.
I have no problem at all about any chocolate and ice cream. But about ice cream, here in Japan, I have my super favorite ice cream: BLACK SESAME ICE CREAM.

I never found it in Indonesia so I am so excited when I found it here in Japan :p the taste is unique. I am intrigued  with its taste. I think if someday I have a cafe, this ice cream should be in the menu. I like it because of course it is not too sweet… and when you try it, there is also a little savory feel on it. Oh please, you can’t imagine it, you should try it! Hahahahaha….

Where you can find it?
Hmmm I think you can find it in almost all resto or cafe throughout Japan. I recommend you try one in “Nana’s green tea” and “Jonathan’s”

This is also good for your health, the black sesame. I read it from one source:

“…..Black sesame seeds are an excellent source of magnesium and calcium.

Magnesium and calcium are important essential minerals that help regulate blood pressure, reduce the likelihood of developing tension and migraine headaches (triggered by blood vessel spasms), reduce the occurrence of airway spasms in asthmatics and regulate sleep patterns, especially in women suffering from menopause-induced sleep disturbances.

Black sesame seeds also help lower serum cholesterol levels (which contributes to cardiovascular health) in several ways. They contain two unique substances known as sesamin and sesamolin. These substances belong to a group of fibers called lignans (flaxseeds are another rich source of lignans). Lignans are rich in dietary fiber and have a cholesterol-lowering effect. ” Source: here

Hahahhaa, I think it suits me well :p

Okay, my beloved reader! Enjoy! 🙂
