Hello. This is Ren MURO , a store specializing in rice koji amazake.
Yesterday, the highest temperature in Tokyo was 30 degrees Celsius, and it was extremely hot with high humidity due to the rain the day before. It's the middle of May, and I think it's getting hotter and hotter.
At times like that, I want to drink cold ice cream and carbonated drinks.
However, regular ice creams and sodas contain a lot of sugar. Such sugar is regarded as "extremely negative" in Oriental medicine, and has the property of cooling the body extremely. So if you take too much, your internal organs will get cold, and it will be easier to connect to various diseases as well as coldness.
Still, I want to eat something cold and sweet. So today, I would like to introduce a simple recipe for amazake recommended for hot weather.
〇 Amazake with soda
The sweetness is also diluted, and you can have a refreshing amazake. The basic ratio is amazake: carbonated water (unsweetened) = 1:1, and if you like, add a little ice or lemon juice to make it more refreshing.
There are products such as sparkling amazake, so amazake and soda go well together.
In addition, carbonated water
・If you drink it before meals, it has the effect of suppressing your appetite.
・The intestines are moved by the stimulation of carbonic acid, which can be expected to relieve constipation.
・It promotes blood circulation and has the effect of relieving fatigue.
And so on, the work is different, but it has the same effect as amazake. If you take it with amazake, you can expect the effect to be doubled.
〇Amazake ice cream
There are various recipes on the internet, but in fact, the concentrated amazake does not become too hard, and it becomes like ice cream just by freezing it as it is. Among the flavored amazake sold at MURO , the Iwakami Shoten series is especially recommended. If you are interested, please try it.
Of course, the amazake ice cream recipe is also easy, so it might be a good idea to try making it at home with your child.
What did you think.
Amazake is a must-have drink when it's hot, so much so that it's even used as a summer season word in haiku.
Thank you for reading to the end today.
