By drinking this just 2 times a day in the morning and the evening, it helps to cure constipation, aids your weight loss efforts and improves your skin, too. Not only that, it's said to alleviate menstrual cramps, too! It's a magical drink!!
Black sesame seeds (ground or whole, whichever you prefer)
Put the soy milk and honey in a cup, and microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
Add the kinako and black sesame seeds, mix very, very well and it's done!
If you heat up the soy milk to at least 60°C before mixing, the kinako will dissolve into it, so I recommend heating it.
Drink this every morning and evening for the greatest results!! I recommend having it twice a day.
When I ran out of honey, I tried using dark brown sugar instead, which was delicious, too. If you get bored with the original formula, please try using brown sugar!
Diet version: I'm busy in the mornings, so I make a smoothie by dissolving the drink with water instead of breakfast.
You should take in at least 400 to 500 kcal per meal, otherwise even if you do lose weight, you're likely to put it back on right away.
I started a diet using this drink last week, and I've already lost 1.5 kg! I've cut down on carbohydrates for lunch and dinner and eaten meals centered around veggies. My goal is to lose 4 kg!!!
Story Behind this Recipe
This is a variation of the "Kinako and soy milk" my friend told me about. Ever since I started drinking this, my constipation has become better and I no longer feel chilly all the time. Because of that it's helping me lose weight, too! My skin is much smoother so that makeup goes on nicely. As a bonus, my menstrual pains are much lighter, too. It's been transformed into a magical drink!!
-You can make this with cold soy milk too, but the kinako and sesame may form clumps, so it's better to warm it up to 60 °C. -I added honey to the kinako soy milk recipe my friend taught me for sweetness, and tried adding black sesame seeds, too, which are good for your skin.
