[Bangyudang] Cacao Misugaru
We're back with more misugaru - this time with cacao!
Bangyudang's Cacao Misugaru is made with real cacao - directly imported from Spain!
The raw cacao is dried, roasted and ground into a fine powder. The misguaru blend contains: Cacao (20%), Barley (50%), Brown Rice (15%) and Soybeans (15%).
So what does it taste like?
No sugar or sweeteners have been added to the raw cacao beans (i.e. unprocessed).
It has as a dark chocolate, slightly-bitter flavor - without any sweetness.
Raw cacao is highly nutritious and exceptionally rich in antioxidants - it helps to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
That's why its being used as an ingredient for this special misugaru.
For a healthy breakfast shake, we recommend mixing a few scoops of this Cacao Misugaru with honey and milk (exact ratio listed below).
I bought 4 flavours at one go: Original, Black, Cocoa & Sweet Pumpkin. All are so delicious! :) The cocoa here really enhances the nutty flavour and gives the drink more depth. Out of all the flavours, I think this is the one that you can get away with if you just wanna mix with water instead of milk. For the Original & Black, I would always mix with milk cos I think that improves the flavour, but it's not necessary for this. I've only ever drank this hot (as a hot chocolate during the evenings mostly), but I'm interested to see how it will be if drank cold. The addition of the cocoa makes a 'safer; option too, if you're worried you won't like the 'grain' taste. But the cocoa also gives me more ideas for smoothie pairings - might try this mixed with a bit of banana & milk one day, I think it would be great!
I purchased this as part of the 3-colour bundle. One day when making a glass, I noticed that I had a bag of dried cherries sitting on the counter next to the blender, so I threw in a handful instead of adding sweetener. The result was great! The cherry flavour went well with the chocolate, and, of course, you can still taste the multigrain flavour. Now I always use cherries with this flavour of misugaru!
This was a great change to my normal misugaru.
I add anywhere from 2-4 tablespoons of this to smoothies. Have also had it with 8-10oz of milk and 2 teaspoons of honey. I found it easier to mix with an immersion blender rather than my shaker bottle. Has a nutty taste, not super chocolatey. Mouthfeel is slightly thick (not as light as water but not milkshake-thick either).
