Mochi Ice Cream
Ah yes, mochi ice cream. These are a favorite summer treat for me. The outside is mochi, a Japanese confection that is made out of pounded sticky rice. Its coated in rice flour to prevent it from sticking to your fingers.
In the early '90's someone thought to create ice cream filled mochi. You can even find it in the frozen section of some markets and places like Trader Joe's.
It comes in a variety of flavors like strawberry, chocolate, kona coffee, mango, green tea and vanilla.
The mochi itself doesn't have much flavor. So basically you get ice cream with a soft, slightly chewy exterior.
Have you had mochi ice cream before? Did you like it?
