Lotus milk. Such weird name. Why did you exist?!
If you’re going to Vietnam, keep an
eye for ‘Sữa sen’, which means ‘Lotus milk’ .It’s one of those weird vegan milk that you should try. It’s got a weird taste, but also really good :v (There’s probably a word for it in every South East country, but I haven’t heard of it)
There’s that guy, who sells the best lotus I’ve ever tasted, but only sell them on the first and fifthteenth of each Lunar Year month.
I once cried because I forgot to buy some once.
But, luckily, my dad, who’s so nice he taught me how to make these. (Thanks dad)
And besides, this is quite a nice swap from your normal everyday almond milk 😉
So, here’s how to make, Lotus Milk:
2 1/2 cups of lotus seeds, white
4 1/2 cups of water
Sugar, to taste
- Throw everything into a blender, blend them until they look like almond milk
2. Milk the lotus milk. I use a pretty cool techniche that really gets all the milk outa the pulp: I just pour it to a cheese cloth, and squeez out all the milk. (Ok, maybe not that cool but, I’m 13 and that’s a new thing I just learn) If you want to try whole milk, then skip this part.
3. Cook the lotus milk until it starts to bubble. Cause you can’t drink it alive!
4. Add the sugar. Drink!
And there you have it :3 Lotus milk for breakfast :3
Also, you could keep the pulp to make lotus paste for your super deliciuos moon cakes :v
