Susu Jagung - Corn Milk

Do you know you can make milk out of corn? Not only is this recipe super easy, I am totally in love with how pretty the yellow color of this corn milk.

Susu jagung, or corn milk, is something that has only been popular in recent years. I guess it is not exactly a groundbreaking invention when the world is used to corn chowder and corn soup, corn milk is almost like that, except it is sweet, and it is a drink. Plus, don’t you simply love that pretty yellow color? Sigh, I’m a little in love I think. :)

To be honest, when I first see this, my first thought was ewww, really? Then I gave it a try, hmm, not bad. And sometimes later, another try, hmm, still not bad, getting better actually. In a sense, kinda like soy milk. The idea may be foreign at first, but once you get used to it, it just grows on you somehow. So give it a try next time you have extra corns laying around and not sure what to do with them, you may end up with a new favorite drink. Oh, and it is supposed to be healthy and good for you if you need a bit of an extra push. And if you need dairy-free milk, simply use soymilk or almond milk.
