Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Hello Kitty Strawberry Ice Cream

30.August.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

 

Today’s recipe will show you how to make a simple ice cream made with frozen strawberries and a blender.

 

Ingredients


500g frozen strawberries (either store bought or self-frozen)

120ml condensed milk

Sliced white chocolate to make Hello Kitty

 

1.


Defrost around 3/10 of the frozen strawberries until they are more soft than frozen, allowing them to be blended more easily.

 

2.


Throw the defrosted strawberries into a blender along with the condensed milk and blend.

 

3.


Place the blended mix into a ziplock bag and place into the freezer. After about an hour, massage the mix while it’s still inside the bag. Repeat this whole process 2-3 times. Doing this will make the ice cream tastier.

Once fully set, place into a serving cup of your choice, use sliced white chocolate to make your chocolate Hello Kitty, and serve!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Cheese Tarts

    17.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In today’s recipe, I’ll be showing you how I made a batch of Pompompurin cheese tarts made using store-bought tart cups.

     

    Ingredients (Makes 9-10)

    9-10 store bought tart cups
    200g cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
    20-30g sugar
    1 egg yolk
    50ml fresh cream
    8g potato starch (katakuriko)
    Vanilla beans to taste (can be substituted for vanilla extract)
    1 tbsp lemon juice

     

    Step 1


    Pour the following ingredients into a bowl in this order: cream cheese→sugar→egg yolk→vanilla beans→fresh cream→potato starch. Mix well. Make sure when you put the potato starch in last that you sprinkle it thinly.

     

    Step 2
    Bake the tart cups in an oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have store-bought cups, you can use small cocotte dishes.

     

    Step 3

    Leave to cool. Now you can start drawing the face.

    For the hat I used sliced chocolate, for the ears sliced cheese, and for the facial features a chocolate pen.

    Once you’ve drawn the face, it’s time to tuck in!
