My mom has been raving about the green tea mochi ice cream she recently discovered at Japanese restaurants. So, of course, I volunteer to make her some.
The green tea mochi recipe was adapted from All Recipes. Instead of mixing the flour with water, I used green tea! This stuff was so sticky. Me being me wanted everything to be uniform. I started out rolling the mochi and using my circle cutters to make circles to wrap the ice cream. Then, I realized that I was tinkering way too much with the mochi that it would just ooze out ice cream at random thin spots. So then, I decided to cut out blobs of the mochi and hand stretch it out. You have to work fast! Towards the end when the ice cream discs were melting, I had a lot of trouble sealing it.
All in all, it tasted great, just like the ones in the restaurants but I told my mom I'm going to leave this one to the experts.
