A RECIPE FOR PERFECTION
MOCHI RICE CAKE
At the foundation of our mochi ice cream is the mochi itself. Mochi is a rice cake molded from steamed mochigome, a short-grained glutinous rice commonly found in east Asia. The cooked rice is kneaded to form a dough that can be reshaped for various uses both savory and sweet. The finished mochi has a unique texture that the Japanese describe as ふわふわ (“fuwa-fuwa”), meaning “soft and pillowy.” Sugar is added for a subtle sweetness that accentuates the delicate flavor of rice.
Decadent, creamy, eyes-rolled-back delicious, ice cream. We use only the finest ingredients, such as hazelnuts from the Piedmont region in Italy, ceremonial grade matcha from Japan, semi-sweet chocolate from Zurich, to ensure quality and taste. Our ice cream wizards transform these premium ingredients into delectable flavors both classic and unique.
We’ve designed our mochi ice cream to be the perfect portion. Each piece has just the right amount of mochi to complement the ice cream without overpowering it. Our special recipe enables us to create a very thin layer of mochi while keeping it soft and smooth. When you bite into the delicate mochi shell, it adds a wonderful texture and lightness to the ice cream with every bite.
HOW WE MAKE MOCHI ICE CREAM
Keeping to the core of what Mochidoki does, whenever we develop a new flavor, the first step is always asking, what hasn’t been done before, and why can’t we do it? After all, we are here to explore the possibilities of mochi ice cream.
ONLY THE BEST INGREDIENTS
Unwavering dedication towards using only the finest ingredients is what sets our mochi ice cream above the rest. Our flavors and colors are 100% natural from trusted purveyors.
As the leader in creating premium mochi ice cream, we are constantly looking for new and fresh approaches to dessert or something else we can wrap in mochi.
PERFECTION TAKES TIME
Finally, comes the testing. This is everyone’s favorite stage of development since it means tasting a lot of ice cream until it is just perfect and ready for you to enjoy as well!
