Apple Kuzu Drink

August 07, 2013

Here is a deliciously refreshing drink using kuzu, which is a great aid to digestion and a popular addition to a macrobiotic diet.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 1 pint apple juice
  • Cinnamon to taste (about a teaspoon)
  • 2 tsp Cleasrpring Kuzu
  • Add some raisins or cranberries if you like.

Method

  1. Cut the apple into chunks and simmer in the apple juice for at least 20 minutes adding the cinnamon and dried fruit after about 10 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat. Mix the kuzu with a little water to make a smooth paste.Then add the slurry to the warm liquid - make sure it is not boiling.
  3. Stir constantly to avoid lumps. The liquid will turn cloudy and then clear in about 3-5 minutes and thicken.
  4. Serve warm.

Variation

You can also make this recipe using 1 tub of your favourite Clearspring Organic Fruit Purée with 1 pint of apple juice or water. Simmer for around 10 minutes with the cinnamon and dried fruit already added and then stir in the kuzu and continue as above.
