  • 100 g glutinous rice flour
  • 30 g cornstarch
  • 25 g granulated sugar
  • 170 g milk
  • 10 g unsalted butter
Matcha Ice Cream
  • 150 g softened cream cheese
  • 25 g granulated sugar
  • 8 g matcha powder
  • 80 g heavy cream


  • Soften the cream cheese. Add in sugar and matcha powder and beat until well combined. Add in heavy cream and beat until well combined.
  • Line the ice cream molds with plastic wrap, fill 6 molds with the cream, cover with plastic wrap, and let chill in the fridge until set.
  • In a clean bowl (microwave-safe), mix well glutinous rice flour, cornstarch, sugar and milk until smooth. Sift once, cover it with microwave-safe plastic wrap, prick some holes on the plastic wrap, and steam until fully cooked (about 20-30 minutes). Or you can microwave it until fully cooked (about 3 minutes).
  • Transfer the dough into the stand mixer bowl, add in unsalted butter, and beat until well combined and dough becomes soft and stretchy. Scrape the dough out, wrap it with plastic wrap, and let it cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Dust the working surface and the dough with more cooked glutinous rice flour, so it won’t be too sticky. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces, and roll them into 6 round flat sheets. Put in matcha ice cream cubes, wrap it up, and put in a cupcake liner. Set in the fridge to cool for a few minutes to thaw the ice cream. Dust with some matcha powder (optional) and serve.


  • How to tell if it is fully cooked?: The batter turns into solid dough. You can find no floating flour liquid inside the dough. The color is translucent.
  • Matcha Quality: Use high-quality matcha powder for the best flavor and color in the ice cream.
  • Mochi Dough Consistency: Ensure the mochi dough is the right consistency; it should be pliable and not too sticky.
  • Freezing the Ice Cream: Properly freeze the matcha ice cream before wrapping it in mochi to maintain its shape.
  • Working Quickly: Work quickly when wrapping the ice cream in mochi to prevent melting.
  • Serving and Storage: Serve immediately or store in the freezer, and let it sit for a few minutes at room temperature before serving for easier eating.
