A delicious, nutritious recipe that’s not in my cookbook but I want to share.
Favorite tea (I used red raspberry leaf tonight)
6 oz hot manoomin milk
6 oz hot water
Maple syrup or sugar to taste
Make manoomin milk (this recipe is in the book): blend a cup of overcooked, hot manoomin in a blender or food processor with a 1/2 cup hot water at a time until very smooth, adding more water to reach your preferred thickness of milk. Add maple sugar and a tsp vanilla and a tiny pinch of salt if you like.
Make a strong cup of tea, and while still steeping, add manoomin milk and maple to taste. You can froth your milk and maple before adding to the tea if you have a frother, for a manoomin tea latte. Use more or less tea:milk ratio as you like.
Store extra manoomin milk in a jar with a lid in the fridge and use within a few days. Shake before using, as it settles when cool.
I’m enjoying this cup from the writing studio, aka outside. 🙂
