Raspberry & Amazake Smoothie

Amazake (Ama = sweet & Zake (sake) = alcohol) is a sweet fermented drink made from water, white or brown rice and salt. My friend gave me this amazake made from brown rice. I usually like to make desserts with amazake. My mother told me when she eat amazake with yogurt, she improves her digestive system because amazake is a good source of probiotics. And amazake is also rich in fibers!

I would like to introduce my favorite amazake smoothie. I used raspberries in this recipe, but you can put any fruits. I used this amazake from Japan ⇩but you can buy at Amazon (see the link below⇩).
