Put the hot water and kinako in a cup and mix well.
Add the milk and mix some more.
Kinako settles at the bottom of the cup easily, so mix it with a spoon as you drink! The photo shows the drink just finished.
The texture is a little grainy, but that is the kinako at work! You'll love it when you get used to it. It will make you feel healthy.
If you want to drink it hot, microwave it in Step 2.
Story Behind this Recipe
This is a nutritious drink, which my mother has been drinking for years. It's nice hot or cold. Enjoy it daily to maintain your health. I recommend it.
The key is to stir it as you drink it! If you don't, the kinako powder will settle to the bottom and you'll get a shock when you get to the end! Thanks to the kinako, this is a filling drink, so you won't feel like snacking or over-eating later.
