Ooh, it’s that powder stuff!

It kinda looks like something you get in bulk at GNC, filled with protein and creatine.

Misutgaru (MEE-soot-ga-ru, “roasted rice powder”) is actually a traditional powder made from rice that has been cooked, dried and ground, along with nuts and other grains.

We have a big whole bunch of it in our household. It’s sometimes sprinkled on patbingsu. Yet the most popular application is mixed as a drink, usually with just water an honey.

It’s the original smoothie, you could say. But I’ve always hated that word “smoothie.” Sounds like a classification of bowel movement.

Anyway. Simple. I chunked a banana in my cup and dusted it with–I don’t know. Does it look like a couple tablespoons of Misutgaru?

Filled it to level with milk and blended with my boat motor.

The attempt at garnish was pathetic. Using a blender is the best way to deal with this stuff. It doesn’t dissolve easily and is usually quite clumpy. Eun Jeong likes to eat it in a bowl with a spoon.

The taste is nutty, like a peanut butter smoo–um, milkshake. The little clumps, and there will always be little clumps, crackle between the molars. In a pleasant way. As far as health drinks go, this is a good one. And it doesn’t have that stale artificial chocolate taste like the musclenecks at the gym drink.
