Matcha Bingsu (Green Tea Shaved Ice Dessert)
Matcha Bingsu is a refreshing way to cool down on a hot day. It is a light and fluffy shaved ice flavoured with matcha green tea, paired with red beans, chewy mochi, sweetened with condensed milk.
- ¾ C water cooled to 80°C/176°F
- 1-2 teaspoon matcha powder to your taste
- dango (chewy glutinous rice dumplings)
- red adzuki beans
- condensed milk to your taste
Make the matcha ice block:
Add matcha powder to a glass/jar/bowl.
Pour the cooled boiled water over the matcha.
Whisk the matcha until frothed.
Let it cool.
Transfer the cooled matcha to a freezer-safe container or ice molds (I used the molds that the ice shaver came with) and freeze until solid.
Shave the ice:
Remove the frozen matcha block and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.
Place the matcha ice block into the ice shaver.
Shave the matcha ice into a chilled bowl, according to the ice shaver manufacturer's directions.
Serve immediately with your choice of toppings and condensed milk.
