Nicecream with hojicha (tea)


How do you make super creamy ice cream without cream or egg? The answer is: banana! On social media we also call this nicecream. This recipe is deliciously unconventional, with all kinds of Japanese influences. Amazake for sweetness, Japanese tea and miso for just that little bit of umami. Delicious combo!

This is what you need



This is how you make it

  1. Cut the bananas into slices and freeze them for at least one night.
  2. Put the hojicha in the blender until it's like powder.
  3. Add the frozen banana pieces, amazake, spice powder and shiro miso to the blender. Grind until smooth.
  4. Eat immediately, then the creamy texture is at its best.
  5. Do you want to store it anyway? Make scoops and take it out of the freezer for 10 minutes before serving.


  • It's sweet enough, but a drizzle of maple syrup on top makes it even better!
