Love ice cream, but fancy something a little different now a heatwave is bringing 30C temperatures to west London?
Innovative London company Little Moons has brought together Britain's love of ice cream with a traditional Japanese delicacy Mochi to create a delicious treat, which is only 100 calories per snack.
Mochi is a Japanese favourite; produced from pounded and sweetened rice flour, it has been eaten for over a thousand years. Traditionally filled with a sweetened red bean paste, Little Moons has updated the classic recipe by adding gelato ice cream into the centre instead.
This recipe creates a soft, bouncy, chewy outside with the Mochi, and a smooth, sweet ice cream inside of gelato.
Little Moons is available in six varieties; toasted sesame, vanilla, coconut, Matcha green tea, mango, and raspberry.
The company was founded by brother and sister entrepreneurs, Howard and Vivien Wong.
Together they spent two years perfecting the process of making Mochi ice cream, developing the recipe alongside Nobu's head patisserie chef, Regis Cursan.
Alongside the six flavours pictured, you can also get Little Moons Mochi on your evenings out.
The treat is currently available at Yo! Sushi, as part of their summer menu. There are four flavours available, including delicious limited edition salted caramel.
Watch the video above as two reporters, getwestlondon 's Amita Joshi and Emily Chudy, taste the Mochi for the first time. If our taste-test whets your appetite, why not try some for yourself?
