Beso Drink is a traditional Ethiopian beverage that's known for its nutritious qualities. It's made of lightly roasted barley flour, known as 'beso', honey, and usually milk or water. Historically, it has been consumed by the hard-working people of Ethiopia for its satiating and energy-boosting properties. It's especially popular amongst runners, due to its blend of slow-releasing carbohydrates, proteins, and natural sweetness.
The slightly nutty taste of Beso powder, the creaminess of the milk, and the sweetness of honey come together in this drink to create a wonderfully refreshing and nutritious beverage. The Beso powder can be found at local Ethiopian stores or online. You can customize this recipe to suit your palate by substituting almond milk with any other kind of milk or water, and honey with sugar or your preferred sweetener.
