Your perfect Matcha Parfait Recipe

Matcha parfait is a delicious and refreshing Japanese dessert that is made with layers of green tea-flavored ice cream or pudding, sweet red bean paste, mochi, whipped cream, and other toppings such as fresh fruit or matcha powder.

It is a perfect treat for those who love the unique flavor and health benefits of matcha, a powdered green tea that is rich in antioxidants and has a calming effect.



Here is a simple recipe for making matcha parfait at home:

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of vanilla ice cream or pudding
  • 1 cup of sweetened red bean paste
  • 1 cup of mochi, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup of whipped cream
  • 1 tablespoon of matcha powder
  • Fresh fruit, such as strawberries or kiwi, for topping

Instructions:


  1. Take a large bowl and mix the vanilla ice cream or pudding with the matcha powder until it is well combined. If you prefer a stronger matcha flavor, add more matcha powder.
  2. Take a tall glass or parfait dish and start assembling the layers. Begin with a layer of the matcha ice cream or pudding, followed by a layer of sweet red bean paste, and then a layer of mochi.
  3. Repeat the layering process until the glass is almost full, ending with a layer of whipped cream on top.
  4. Sprinkle some matcha powder on the whipped cream and top with fresh fruit.
  5. Serve the matcha parfait immediately or refrigerate it for later.

Enjoy your delicious matcha parfait!


Matcha parfait is a versatile dessert that can be customized to your taste preferences. Here are some variations and tips for making the perfect matcha parfait:

Instead of vanilla ice cream or pudding, you can use matcha ice cream or pudding for a stronger matcha flavor. You can also mix matcha powder with plain yogurt or whipped cream for a lighter option.

Sweet red bean paste is a traditional ingredient in Japanese desserts, but you can substitute it with other sweet fillings such as fresh fruit, jelly, or chocolate sauce.



Mochi is a chewy rice cake that is often used in Japanese desserts. If you can't find it in stores, you can make your own by mixing glutinous rice flour with water and microwaving it until it becomes sticky and pliable. Then, shape it into small balls or pieces and dust them with cornstarch to prevent sticking.

To enhance the matcha flavor, you can sprinkle some matcha powder between the layers or mix it with the whipped cream. You can also add some honey or agave syrup for extra sweetness.

When assembling the parfait, use a spoon or piping bag to create neat layers and avoid mixing the ingredients too much. You can also chill the glass or parfait dish in the freezer beforehand to keep the layers from melting.

For toppings, you can use any fresh fruit or nuts that complement the matcha flavor. Some popular choices include strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, mango, almonds, or sesame seeds.



Matcha parfait is a delicious and healthy dessert that can be enjoyed anytime. It is also a great way to impress your guests or satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty. So, go ahead and indulge in this delightful treat!

Smooth like silk on the palate. The scent of the roasted rice and matcha intemingling like the finest fragrance.

Excellent sencha. I did not taste any bitterness at all.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
