Red Bean and Black Sesame Ice Cream

Red Bean Black Sesame Ice Cream

After the moffle party a couple of weeks ago, I had a lot of leftover sweetened red beans and sweetened condensed milk left over so I decided to make some red bean ice cream like last time. Except I didn't have enough sweetened condensed milk so when I taste tested the mixture before churning it, it didn't seem quite sweet enough. I also happened to have some leftover instant black sesame powder, so I decided to add that to the mix, and voila! Red bean and and black sesame ice cream!

It was so simple to make and not surprisingly, perfect on moffles! I think next time I may try to make a black sesame ice cream. And I still dream about making a pure white almond ice cream....

  3. i've tried some black sesame ice cream lately, but the red bean takes it to another level. I'm very curious about the flavors.

  4. I have had red bean ice cream and I have had black sesame ice cream but not combined. It sounds really good!
