Kinako きな粉 or 黄粉 is roasted soybean powder/flour. It is known as yellow flour in Japan. This flour is usually used for coating mochi (a type of wagashi), topping for ice-cream and shaved ice and also made into drinks. I found kinako by chance at Daiso yesterday, so I bought a packet (RM5.30) to try. Here’s I’m sharing kinako latte (roasted soybean flour milk drink) recipe which is much loved by the Japanese.
Kinako Latte きな粉ラテ
2 tablespoons kinako
250ml milk or soy milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1. Add kinako, milk and sugar in a saucepan in low heat (since you don’t want to burn the milk).
2. Whisk the mixture to produce froth.
3. Once it’s warm enough, pour into a cup. Serve immediately.
Enjoy this drink!
