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
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).
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.
