Kinako Latte きな粉ラテ

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

Let’s make this delicious drink!

Kinako Or Roasted Soybean Powder
My kinako from Shinsei. You can get kinako at Asian grocery store that stock up Japanese goods.

Add Milk, Kinako & Sugar
In low heat, add milk, kinako and sugar into a saucepan. Whisk it to produce froth/foam. Once mixture is heated up, pour into a cup. That’s it. Super simple.

Kinako Latte
Kinako latte is nutty and heavenly. Very soothing too. Just chill kinako latte in the fridge or use cold milk if you prefer cold latte.

Kinako Latte きな粉ラテ
Serves 1-2

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!

      Hi Poh Chin, If I remember correctly it’s at Daiso’s Bukit Tinggi, Klang. For Japanese groceries, you can go to Aeon, Mid Valley and Isetan, KLCC. They stock the most Japanese related food.
