I will show you a frozen drink this time. It's frozen Kurogoma Kinako Latte! This desert drink is creamy, nutty, sweet and savory !! I would like you to try it.
Kurogoma (黒ごま ,black sesame seed) might seem to be unusual for you as a sweet drink ,but it is often used in Japanese confectionary ,also for making cakes and ice creams .
Kinako (きな粉 ,roasted soybeans powder) is produced by grinding roasted soy beans into a powder. As well as black sesame seeds, Kinako is also widely used in Japanese confectionary.
Here are some typical Japanese food Ohagi (おはぎ) Sweet rice balls made with glutinous rice with different flavored coatings.
It might be difficult for you to get black sesame seeds and Kinako in your stores. Here is a product which contained both of them.
There are fluffy black sesame seed powder, finely grounded Kinako, and Sudakito ,special cane sugar containing lots of minerals from Amami island, Kagoshima, in the packet.
I think it is very handy and useful for you to have one on your shelf.
