Mochi ice cream is a confection made from Japanese mochi with an ice cream filling. It was invented by Japanese-American businesswoman and activist Frances Hashimoto.
On its own, plain mochi tastes like marshmallows combined with the flavor of neutral gummy candy. It has a starchy after taste due to the rice. It also has a stretchy, sticky, chewy, and soft texture. Mochi is also flavored with a wide array of ingredients such as green tea, herbs, sweeteners, and more.
