Estimated values based on one serving size.


  1. Scoop & Freeze your ice cream: Using a muffin tin lined with muffin cups, scoop in your favorite flavor of ice cream in each mold. We recommend using an ice cream scoop that is 1oz in size. Place muffin tin back in the freezer and let it harden for about one hour.
  2. Make mochi dough: Mix together Sweet rice flour with water, sugar, and 1 teaspoon of matcha powder until very smooth. You can use a whisk with a bowl and strain through a sieve if there are any lumps, or blend together in a blender until smooth.
  3. Dust a clean working surface generously with a sieve using cornstarch or potato starch.
  4. Pour the rice flour mixture into a small pot and cook on medium heat stirring constantly with a rubber spatula until the mixture thickens. It will start to get stickier and transparent and glossy.
  5. Pour the mixture into a microwave-safe bowl, covered with plastic, and cook at 1-minute intervals. Once the mochi dough is halfway transparent cook in 15-30 seconds increments, stirring in between until fully transparent and glossy.
  6. Pour the cooked mochi on the starched surface and let the steam release for about one minute. Dust the surface of the mochi dough with more starch powder.
  7. Using a rolling pin, roll out to ½ inch thickness. With a pizza cutter, cut out 3 inch by 3 inch squares. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
  8. Assemble mochi: Pick up one mochi square and place it in your palm. Place the scoop of Ice Cream in the center of the mochi square and connect the four seams with your other hand. If too sticky, keep using the starch for your fingers!
  9. Blot the seamed surface on the starched surface. Cut off any excess mochi dough if necessary.
  10. Enjoy!
