    The main ingredients to get a delicious and nutritious lotus seed milk that the whole family can drink is:

    • White sugar: 100 grams (the amount of sugar varies according to taste but you should not make it too sweet, it will lose its deliciousness and bar)
    • Water: 2 liters (recommended to use filtered or boiled water to make sure)
    • Refined salt: About teaspoon
    • Honey: 1 teaspoon
    • Some necessary tools: Blender, strainer or filter cloth, pot, spoon.

    How are you?

    Processing

    Preliminary treatment
    When you buy lotus seeds, you need to peel, peel off the silk, remember to remove the lotus heart, then wash, soak in warm water for about 1 hour and then pick it up to drain. You can keep the lotus heart to use to make lotus heart tea, drinking it sensibly will cure insomnia in the elderly.

    Step 1: Grind the seeds
    For every 100 grams of lotus seeds will need to use 1 liter of water, you should divide it into 2 times to grind and filter for easy implementation.

    Put 100 grams of pre-processed lotus seeds in a blender, puree them with 0.8 liters of water. Simmer until you get a smooth mixture. Usually this step only takes about 1 to 3 minutes.

    Step 2: Filter the milk
    After grinding, pour the milk mixture into a small sieve or filter cloth to remove the seed residue. Personally, I prefer straining with a filter cloth because I don’t like milk with too much powder, and straining with a sieve will get a condensed milk mixture rather than straining with a cloth. Depending on your taste, you can choose the appropriate filter method.

    While filtering the pulp, I usually use the remaining 0.2 liters of water to pour over the filter one more time, making sure to get as much milk as possible.

    Step 3: Boil the milk
    After repeating the steps of grinding the seeds and filtering twice, you put all the milk obtained in a pot and bring to a boil with the sugar and salt. While boiling, keep the heat on medium low, stir well to dissolve the sugar and prevent the milk from burning the pot. When the milk boils, boil for another 5 minutes, then add honey, stir well and turn off the heat.

    By this step, you have obtained a delicious and nutritious cup of pure lotus seed milk. However, some mothers like to add condensed milk and fresh milk to the lotus seed milk to prevent the milk from separating and have a richer taste. If you have the same taste, just add about 200 ml of sweetened condensed milk and replace the 500 ml of filtered water above with 500 ml of unsweetened fresh milk.

    Add these 2 ingredients with honey before turning off the stove. It’s not difficult, right?

    Step 4: Enjoy and preserve
    Lotus seed milk can be drunk hot or cold. After removing the pot from the stove, you can wait for the milk to cool down and then pour it into a cup to drink, and if you want to drink it cold, wait for the milk to cool, you can put it in the refrigerator to cool and then drink it. Do not put ice in milk, melting ice will dilute the milk and lose its taste.

    You should store milk in the refrigerator, so it is better to store milk in a glass bottle than a plastic bottle and keep the lid tightly closed to prevent odors from the refrigerator or other foods from soaking into the milk, which will lose its delicious taste.

    Lotus seed milk can be kept up to about 5 days in the fridgeHowever, there will be no food that can be kept for a long time and can keep the same fresh taste as when it was freshly made. So every time you do, you should calculate to make just enough to drink in about 3 days, anyway, the method is not too complicated, so it can be refreshed regularly, right?

Tips for using other lotus seed milk

How do I make my way to my ears?
(Source: cookie.vn)

My favorite is to drink pure lotus seed milk like this, but depending on your taste, you can also modify the recipe I suggested above with a few small steps:

first

Corn milk with lotus seeds

Mixing corn milk with lotus seed milk is not difficult, you just need to prepare 1 more corn/sweet corn, boil the lotus seeds and corn, then grind both seeds and filter as mentioned above, boil to cool, then Enjoy as usual. The aroma of sweet corn mixed with the pure taste of lotus seeds is also very popular with the children. Changing the taste often makes the baby love drinking milk every day, right?

2

Sweet potato lotus seed milk

In addition to sweet corn, sweet potato is also used to add flavor and consistency to lotus seed milk. In this recipe, I usually boil the potatoes and lotus seeds before grinding these two ingredients together because raw grinding will not have the desired sweetness, nor will the milk be smooth. Note that after boiling the lotus seeds for about 15 minutes, then drop the potatoes in and boil them, until both are soft, then take them out.

Usually people who like to drink condensed milk will love this recipe and will filter it with a sieve to retain more of the powder in the milk. The method is not too complicated, so I think you should try it. Who knows, I’ll be addicted to this!

Longan lotus seed milk

Yesterday, I suggested how to cook lotus seed longan tea, right? In fact, this couple can even combine in this lotus seed milk dish. You can completely use the sweetness of fresh longan to replace a part of sugar, if you want the perfect natural taste. Of course, it is not possible to completely replace white sugar, because if you use too much longan, it will lose the taste of lotus seeds.

I don’t like to drink it very sweet, so I just add about 200 grams of peeled fresh longan and puree it with pre-boiled lotus seeds, filter through a sieve and when boiled, reduce the amount of sugar needed to about 80 grams. About the sweetness of milk, it varies according to taste, but still the saying above, consume less sugar!

How to make lotus seed milk at home is not difficult, right? Just like how to make milk from walnuts, even if you don’t have time, preparing 4 cups of lotus seed milk for the whole family will not take you more than 2 hours.
