Raspberry & Amazake Smoothie

Amazake (Ama = sweet & Zake (sake) = alcohol) is a sweet fermented drink made from water, white or brown rice, and salt. It's not just a delicious treat but also a health booster. My friend gave me this amazake made from brown rice. I usually like to make desserts with amazake. My mother told me that eating Amazake with yogurt improves her digestive system because Amazake is a good source of probiotics. And amazake is also rich in fiber, making it a great addition to a balanced diet!

I would like to introduce my favorite amazake smoothie. This recipe is incredibly versatile, allowing you to use any fruits you have on hand. I used raspberries in this recipe, but you can put any fruit. You can buy Amazake at Japanese grocery stores and online.
