Japanese Ice Cream Sundae Parfait
A Fantastic Exotic Ice Cream Sundae
1 qt. rich vanilla ice cream, 1 scoop per parfait (we recommend Haagen-Dazs)

1 qt. green tea (or red bean) ice cream, 1 scoop per parfait (or substitute with vanilla)

1 medium-sized can or 14 oz. bag of sweet, smooth red bean paste (You may have to look for this at an Asian or Chinese market). The red bean paste is used in the same way as American hot fudge

1 small box Frosted Flakes

1 can whipped cream

2 cups diced, fresh mixed fruit:

strawberries, fresh pineapple, banana, honeydew melon balls, and orange (optional)


 

This is a very simple to make but surprisingly good sundae from Kyoto, Japan. It's like an old-fashioned American ice cream sundae, but just a little different! Try this recipe for an exotic twist on an old favorite!

Dice the fruit into small pieces and set aside. In a glass measure about 1 cup Frosted Flakes for each parfait and lightly break or crumble the larger pieces until they are about the size of Rice Krispies cereal, but be careful not to grind them too fine--discard any of the sugary powder.

Layer 1:
Next, spread 1 Tbls. of sweet red bean paste into the bottom of each parfait glass. Sprinkle a little handful of the crispies over this layer (about 2 Tbls.). Then add 1 scoop of green tea ice cream. If using fruit, line the sides of the glass with a few pieces of the fruit.

Layer 2:
Put another 1 Tbls. of sweet red bean paste over the ice cream, and then another 2 Tbls. or so of the crunchies. Then put the scoop of rich vanilla ice cream over this.

Again cover the ice cream with another 1 Tbls. of sweet red bean paste, and then another 2 Tbls. or so of the crunchies. If using fruit, again line the sides of the glass with a few pieces of the fruit and top the parfait with a few more pieces. Shake the whipped cream and garnish each parfait with a lovely conical spiral of cream.

Itadakimasu!!!
