This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream.
I haven’t made one of my milkshakes in awhile (maybe it’s because I’ve got my hands a bit full at the moment with a couple of cute 8-month-olds), so when Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream reached out to collaborate on a recipe, I immediately thought about making a Matcha Mochi Milkshake!
Try saying Matcha Mochi Milkshake five times fast! Or maybe even just one time fast! Ha!
Have you had mochi before? Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream is a bite-sized treat made with a variety of premium ice cream flavors wrapped in sweetened rice dough. It’s ice cream you can eat with your hands! A couple of years ago, I had never heard of mochi, but my husband LOVES it, and when he found some in the grocery store freezer section, he made me try them.
And what’s great about mochi is that because it doesn’t melt as quickly as regular ice cream, so you can grab a cooler and head to a weekend BBQ, the beach, a celebration, a dinner party, or an adventure. It’s perfect for any occasion! You can even use it in a milkshake or as a milkshake topper!Instead of making this milkshake with ice cream and milk and topping it with traditional whipped cream, I blended frozen banana “nice cream,” coconut milk, Matcha, and Green Tea flavored Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream, and then topped it with coconut whipped cream so it’s a bit better for you with less calories. Each Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream is less than 100 calories per mochi and on their own, they are a great dessert for a mindful indulgence. So I tried to be a bit more mindful about my overall milkshake to make it healthier with fewer calories compared to a regular over-the-top milkshake. Plus, Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream will be releasing new vegan varieties soon, so if made with vegan Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream, then this entire milkshake can be made vegan and lactose-free!
I know this isn’t a Neapolitan Milkshake, but there’s something about the three colors that reminds me of one. Maybe this can be considered the millennial version of the Neapolitan Milkshake since it’s made with banana “nice cream,” coconut whipped cream, Matcha, and mochi! But seriously, those Strawberry Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream on top are SO good!!
Here are the ingredients and the recipe:
