I Tried Ice Cream Covered in Rice Flour (AKA Mochi) & BTW It’s Vegan

If you’re like me, you pretty much can’t go one day without an ice cream cone in your hand, especially in the summer. The flavors and variations are endless. Soft serve, dip cones, dairy-free, sundaes, floats, cakes.

Seriously, ice cream can be anything you need it to be, which is not something that frat guy that hits you up at 2 a.m. can do for you. But, just when you thought ice cream couldn’t get any better, one fave comes to save the day: mochi - a perfectly sized ball of dough covering sweet sweet ice cream.

It also doesn’t hurt that the bright colors by my personal fave brand, My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream, are beyond Instagrammable.

Have you ever dreamed of chewing your ice cream? Kind of an odd fantasy, but I can’t say I haven’t been there. And I figured that for National Ice Cream Month, I should finally make my dreams come true. Because if anything deserves a month, it's beautiful, soft, delish ice cream.

The rice flour covering is super chewy and sweet which makes the ice cream taste even better, just when you thought it couldn’t. When you first pick it up, the new shape is kind of funny looking. You think to yourself, how can ice cream and dough mix? Well, I have no idea, but the creators at My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream know the answer.

Rice flour and ice cream are surprisingly super good together. My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream has perfected eight flavors to choose from – literally any kind you can dream of. You need some green tea after a long day? They’ve got you. Feeling some sweet mango while lying on the beach? You can have a whole box. Treat yourself to vanilla bean, double chocolate, salted caramel, mint chocolate chip, cookies & cream, ripe strawberry, sweet mango, or green tea.

Some of these are also vegan!

I tried the mango, caramel and strawberry. All three were super refreshing and perfectly sized. So, if you’re looking to switch up your ice cream routine, please do yourself a favor and snap that perfect Instagram of you and your bright mochi.
