azuki ice

This is a simple summer treat… aduki ice/アズキアイス! It is so yummy, I could easily eat an entire batch by myself :)

Aduki Ice Recipe

Ingredients:

About 1 part sweet aduki bean paste (or tsubu-an)

About 1 part heavy cream or milk (heavy cream for a creamier texture, milk for a crunchier texture. I like to use a 50/50 mix).

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients together.

2. Pour or spoon into ice cube trays.

3. When frozen (about a few hours), pop them out into a dish, and enjoy! My kids love it!

***

You can buy azuki paste at most Asian grocery stores. If not, they are available online as well.

    I am SO trying this !! But I don’t know what heavy cream is called here in France… ><

    Milk : condensed, sugared milk or regular, normal milk ?

      I use the kind of cream that you can whip into whipped cream. As for the milk, we just use regular 2% milk, although whole milk would probably be great too!
