I topped it with a little candied yuzu peel.


1 cup Amazake
1 cup almond milk
1/2 tea of powdered vanilla
1/2 tea yuzu juice
1 table spoon of rice malt syrup.
Add these to a pan .
3/4 of a tablespoon of crushed kuzu made into a paste with a little water .
Add this to the pan.
Sprinkle over the surface around 3/4 tablespoon of kanten and heat up stirring well.
Pour into pots and chill for a few hours. Top with yuzu peel .


The yuzu juice and peel you can buy if your in the UK from @japancentre
You could add other fruits or flavour instead of yuzu if you like.

Macrobiotic Hot Ginger Amazake

Warming up this morning with a macrobiotic hot ginger amazake . This drink is often served in shrines and temples in the winter months in Japan. Made with fermented rice and koji it is very nutritious containing vitamins and dietary fibre. A healthy drink rich in enzymes often associated with new year.
I used brown rice amazake about one cup then equaled that with water added fresh ginger juice and brought it to a simmer . Then I strained it ( you don’t have to ) but it gives a smoother drink. I then topped it with a little yuzu peel.

With my amazake I had something called Ogura Toast as I had some sweet red azuki beans left from yesterday’s Zenzai . This is a breakfast speciality in Nagoya cafes.
This gave me a satisfying Japanese style breakfast this morning
