Egyptian Dessert – Saheb
Egypt’s sweet warm drink and my personal favorite – A luscious treat that’ll warm you right up!

Its base is hot milk mixed with pure orchid root powder which is what gives it its flavourful taste and thickness.

Sahlab can be conveniently made with instant sachets that already contain this powder and other ingredients like vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon.

You can have some fun with it and add the toppings that you like, personally, I love it with banana and strawberries.

Traditionally, Sahlab is topped with a pinch of cinnamon, shredded coconut, crushed pistachio, and maybe even some raisins.

For me, it’s the best Egyptian dessert there is and my go-to treat.
