Have you ever tasted a mochi??
Mochi ice cream are ice cream inside coated with mochi.
Mochi ice cream are extremely popular in Japan which you can find any convenience store if you visit Japan.
It also has been all time my favorite modern style Japanese sweet since I was a kid.
Mochi is made out of rice cake , but in my recipe I used potato starch and tofu.
This mochi ice cream parfait recipe is dedicated to especially those who have kids and love Japanese sweets. It is also vegan and gluten free as well.
On YouTube, my kids are the main chef. Lots of fuss, but they can make mochi ice cream parfait. If my kids can make, anyone can do!
Have fun making it with your loved ones!!
