Have you ever tasted mochi??

Mochi ice cream is ice cream on the inside surrounded by mochi. Mochi ice cream is extremely popular in Japan where you can find it at any convenience store. It has also recently become popular in North America. It has been my all time favorite modernized Japanese sweet since I was a kid.

Mochi is made out of rice cakes but in my recipe I used potato starch and tofu.

This mochi ice cream parfait is dedicated to especially to those who have kids and love Japanese sweets. It is also vegan and gluten free as well.

On YouTube video, my kids are the main chefs. Lots of fuss, but they can make mochi ice cream parfait. If my kids can make it then anyone can do it!

Have fun making it with your loved ones!!



<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 8 minutes

<Cook time> 5 minutes


7oz (200g) silken tofu

107oz (50g) potato starch

60ml soy milk

1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar

1 piece rice cake


1 tablespoon matcha powder

vegan ice cream (as much as you want)

banana (as much as you want )

azuki beans (as much as you want)


1. In a bowl whisk the silken tofu until you reach a creamy consistency. Add in the sugar, potato starch and soy milk. Keep whisking them to combine everything together. Cut the rice cake into small pieces then add them to the bowl.

2. Heat everything from step 1 over low heat. Continue to stir to prevent it from burning and sticking at the bottom. When it starts to thicken up and becomes sticky, remove from heat. Let the rice cake melt completely with the remaining heat.

3. Wet a spoon then scoop the mochi. Throw them into an ice bath. When they have cooled down, drain the water.

4. In a serving cup, add in the ice cream, mochi, azuki beans and then sprinkle on matcha powder. Alternatively, you can add whatever topping you like! Now it's ready to be enjoyed!

<Miwa’s tips>

1. In step 1, cut the rice cake into small pieces, so that it will melt completely.

2. In step 2, please mix the mochi continuously when you are heating it. It burns easily.

3. You can use any milk you have on hand.

4. In step 3, if you leave the mochi in an ice bath for too long, it becomes too soggy and mushy.

5. The toppings are endless!! Nuts, any kind of fruits, honey, maple syrup etc... Jazz it up with whatever you like♡
