Do You Like Mochi?

Mochi (The ones in photograph are filled with ice cream not bean paste)

Mochi (Japanese: 餠, もち)  

“Mochi (pronounced MOE-chee) is a Japanese dessert made of sweet glutinous rice flour, or mochigome. With a chewy, smooth, elastic texture, mochi dough is often tinted with green tea powder (matcha) or other food colorings and wrapped around a sweet center to form small, bite-size confections. In its traditional form, this kind of mochi is filled with sweet red bean paste.”

Blood Orange, Mango, Pistachio, Vanilla, Blueberry, Strawberry, These are the flavors I bought today.

  1. your photo is pretty and you capture the beauty of these sweet treats.
    They are so fun to see – and eat!
    we like these (Wegman’s sells some – bigger than those in the pic) but we try not to have any sugar and flour – and so we now make ice cream from coconut milk (Trader Joe’s has some cans with no gunk added) and add stevia – then change the toppings –

  2. After seeing this post on your blog, I bought a box of Vanilla Mochi when I was shopping at Trader Joe’s. I have one word to say: YUM!

  3. Spoiler Alert – you may prefer to be uninformed.
    Per 1 internet source – you may want a wider number of sources. Comparing the calories vs the carbs for both red bean paste and ice cream- because I am type 2 diabetic. Aha- the ice cream is “healthier” – Yes, the numbers will vary per flavor.
    Rounding numbers for 1 piece of the ice cream version 100- 110 calories and 24 carbs
    versus the bean paste containing more than 200 calories and 70 carbs / piece.
    Stick with the ice cream version.

  4. Oh my… Mochi is one of my favorite dessert, especially freshly prepared ones are very smooth and tasty, I can eat them with grated root vegetables with a bit of soy sauce 😋🥂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
