The key to the richness of this popular drink is the toasted almond butter. Ground toasted almonds just don't do the trick.
1 cup Mitoku Amazake
1&1/2 cups almond milk or rice drink
3 tbsp. toasted almond butter
small pinch sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. almond extract
Purée all ingredients thoroughly in a blender. For a smooth texture, pour through a fine-mesh strainer to remove rice hulls. (Press solids dry, and save them in a covered container in the refrigerator for making cookies, quick breads and pastries.) Serve well chilled.
