Ingredients (Makes 10 ice pops using 5 cm x 4 cm pudding molds)

  • 200 g boiled sweet azuki beans (canned)
  • 20 g condensed milk
  • 150 g milk

Preparation

1

Prepare 10 ice pop sticks.

Directions

1

Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl.

2

Place the bowl in the freezer for 30-60 minutes. Take the mixture out before it hardens and mix thoroughly. Put back in the freezer.

3

When it starts to reharden, mix thoroughly and divide equally among the custard pudding molds. Freeze.

4

When the mixture is hard enough to hold an ice pop stick upright, remove the molds from the freezer, insert the sticks, and freeze.

5

When ready to serve, briefly immerse the molds in warm water and remove the ice pops by pulling on the sticks.

Advice

Place each mold in warm water for 1-2 seconds and twist the stick for easy removal.
