Author Notes

There are many ways in which you can use our wonderful halva spreads -- be it smeared on toast for breakfast, with your fruit for a nutritious mid-day snack, alongside your favorite cheese as an appetizer, or spooned straight from the jar to satisfy your sweet tooth.

However, this summer I found myself enjoying Brooklyn Sesame halva spreads in smoothies. They make a great on-the-go breakfast on a hot summer day or a refreshing afternoon snack. My favorite is a "Tropical Desert” smoothie -- it is as delicious and refreshing as it sounds! —BrooklynSesame
