Melon Cream Soda Mochi, my newest original creation! Mochi is one of most loved treats in Japan and there are so many variations of it, but in the states, most people only know of mochi ice cream. If you’re from Hawaii, then you probably love chichi dango mochi, which is mochi that’s made with sweet rice flour + milk or coconut milk, this recipe is very similar to chichi dango mochi and just as easy to make. Melon cream soda reminds me of my fun times visiting Tokyo, it’s a super popular drink that you can get from combini stores, vending machines or as a special drink with a scoop of ice cream at yoshoku restaurants. Using melon cream soda to make mochi, just takes it to another level, it’s elastic, soft, chewy with that iconic flavor of melon cream soda (it also tastes similar to Melona ice cream bars).

It’s also amazing if you cut the mochi into smaller pieces and enjoy it with ice cream.
