When I was in high school grade 12, my life was pretty hectic. I got up at 6 am in the morning, left home for school around 6:50 to 7 am, arrived at school around 7:30 am and stayed there until 11pm, studying.

Can you believe that? I know I wasn’t the only one who had to stay at school for those crazy hours, but still you really need a good balance of food to keep you going or “survive” I would say.

I always tried to get a proper breakfast – rice, soup and side dishes – a typical Korean breakfast. But if I got up late and I didn’t have enough time to have my breakfast, my mum always handed out this multi-grain shake (Misutgaru Latte or Misugaru Latte if you already tried it from Caffe Bene) to me at the door.

What is Misugaru

Misugaru (미수가루) or Misutgaru (미숫가루) is a mixed multi-grain powder that is ground, roasted and/or steamed. It is high in protein with relatively low calories, so it is popular among people on a weight loss diet. It certainly kept me going longer than a rushed regular breakfast I had while I was at school.

This is what the misugaru / misutgaru powder looks like.

The package I bought was produced by the local rice cake mill store (떡집/방앗간). I personally think this is the best kind you could get, as it omits artificial additives. This yellow sandy colour bag of Misugaru was AUD $7 and I purchased it from a Korean grocery store in the Brisbane CBD.

It is also quite common to take your own choice of grains to the rice cake mill store and ask them to make a powder for Misugaru. This way you can choose your own grains for whatever % components you would like.

After opening the packet, I keep Misugaru in an air tight glass jar. Some Misugaru comes in a resealable packet. Regardless, Misugaru can be kept in the freezer for more than a year without getting spoiled.

There are many ways you can make Misugaru latte (Korean multigrain shakes). You can

  • Add some sugar or honey
  • Add some water or milk.
  • Make it runny by increasing water or milk or make it thicker but powdery by adding more Misugaru
  • Add ice cubes if making it for summer hot weather
  • Use a shaker or a blender or a tea spoon or stir it really hard

For my recipe below, I wanted to recreate the Misugaru latte I used to drink when I was at high school. I hope you find it delicious and filling! Enjoy.
