What got me into freaking making “Goguma Ladde” Sweet Potato Latte during my visit to Caffebene recently. I tasted their Sweet Potato Latte and it was really good, that got me wanting to make some fresh ones at my comfort home as I realised that day I got a few newly bought Japanese sweet potato.
I steamed and baked my sweet potato as to give skin much a drier texture. I wasn’t going to give the skin away as they are full of nutrients. Once cooked I used some and blended it with milk, ice cubes and a dash of syrup.
400gm Japanese Sweet Potatoes
Pressure steamed Japanese Sweet Potatoes for 15mins
Then baked it for 15mins
Cubed the Sweet Potatoes, place about 50gm into the blender
Add in 200ml milk, ice cubes and a tablespoon syrup
Blend and pour into the serving glass
For mine I prefer less dilute but more of a cream like texture. The taste was grand and I find it exciting, something new in taste. Mine was done coarse and had a biting texture in it. Just love this exploration of some new in taste just a home comfort. Having a ice blender sure useful! Maybe pumpkin latte will be next . . .
