If you like oat milk, this drink is for you! Misugaru refers to the mixed grain powder here! This drink is a sweet and nutty drink normally associated with summer. When I was little, the grown ups would drink it in the heat of summer with plenty of ice floating, in a giant bowl. It's also a filling snack!

For this version, instead of using water to mix the powder, I used almond milk for extra nuttiness and heft. And because the powder is fine grain powder, it won't dissolve. You may also notice it clumps. But no worries! Just keep stirring. I used my frother to have some frothiness and creaminess to it, but if you do not have one, don't worry about it! Just use a spoon.

I found my misutgaru online but a Korean store would also have it too.
