Here’s an easy, 4-ingredient Japanese strawberry mochi ice cream that is made using fresh strawberries and vegan ice cream
Strawberry has to be one of my favorite mochi flavors. The addition of fresh strawberries brings with it all the best sweet and tart flavors. By blending the strawberries and mixing the puree into the dough, each bite of mochi is filled with strawberry goodness! You can fill these strawberry mochi bites with sweetened white or red bean paste, but for this recipe we’ll be filling it with ice cream!
Not only is this cute treat filled with strawberry flavor, but it’s also incredibly easy and only takes 4 ingredients to make! No need for a billion ingredients and hard work to make this spectacular strawberry mochi. Here’s a step by step recipe to make strawberry mochi ice cream below!
Ingredients Used to Make Strawberry Mochi Ice Cream
**I’ve linked some of these ingredients to amazon.com to give you an idea of what they are, but you should also be able to find them in your local grocery store (usually, the natural & organic food section). They are also affiliate links, which means that I earn a commission as an Amazon Associate if you decide to purchase the items. The price will be the same for you, link or no link 🙂
Strawberries – use fresh, or thawed from frozen
Glutinous Rice Flour – this goes by many names. You’ll see Glutinous Rice Flour and Mochiko Flour (my favorite brand) in Asian grocery stores, and Sweet White Rice Flour in most other stores. ***Please note that regular white rice flour or brown rice flour is NOT the same thing as glutinous rice flour!!!
Cornstarch – for dusting the mochi
Ice cream filling – dairy or dairy free, any flavor you like. In this recipe, I used a vegan kind made from coconut milk. See photos below!
