RECIPE: EASY 3-INGREDIENT BLACK RICE SMOOTHIE

 

August 14, 2017

During a trip to Taipei we discovered a latte with black rice as main ingredient. Never before I had considered to blend a drink with black rice, so once back home I got to experiment. My go-to technique was a smoothie. The result turned out a practical, super-easy and irresistible power drink with only 3 ingredients!

The beans give lots of non-dairy proteins, and combined with black rice, this smoothie is packed with carbs, protein, fiber, mineral and phytonutrient. Easily replaces a meal or helps you to recover after a workout. 

I prefer to make my own red bean paste, but you can have a look at your local food store. The one from Morinaga is yummy and not too sweet (if you want to try my recipe for homemade red bean paste, drop me a line and I send it to you).

Refrigerated and sealed, each ingredient keeps for up to a week, so you can keep blending for a while!  

First, boil the rice as described in a previous post: Black Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Milk (without adding coconut milk, palm sugar or brown sugar).

Then, blend all 3 ingredients!

You can add more sticky rice or red bean paste according to your preference.

THAT'S IT :)

If not sweet enough (largely depends on the brand of soy milk and red bean paste), you can add some honey.
