Enjoy the pleasant aroma of Japanese roasted green tea with this easy to make Hojicha Oat Milk Ice Cream Recipe. All it takes is 5 minutes!
What I love about my Hojicha Ice Cream recipe is that it almost doesn’t need to be made ahead of time. It uses a no-churn method. It is dairy-free and egg-free. You can make it anytime as long as you have some frozen milk ice cubes in your freezer! So I like to keep a tray of frozen oat milk ice cubes handy!
Instead of steeping hojicha tea leaves in heavy cream, I like to use Hojicha powder from Hojicha Co. Hojicha Powder perfectly dissolves easily into filtered water to create rich and creamy Japanese roasted green tea lattes while retaining its unique flavour and aroma. I like to this battery milk frother for best results!

I love making ice cream desserts with my Vitamix blender. This cold and creamy, aromatic ice cream only requires 5 minutes and 3 ingredients!
You can use milk or your choice of milk alternative. I used Earth’s Own Oat Milk (unsweetened) for a nice neutral base and a dash of pure vanilla extract as a sweetener.
If you want to get fancy, you can also drizzle some sweetened condensed milk to lightly sweeten the deal. The slight crunch the condense milk gets when it is flash-frozen against the freshly made ice cream is SO delicious!
Adding chocolate chips or Skors candy bar bites also is very fun!

812 Cake & Dessert is a cake and dessert shop located in Burnaby. I love the bright white space, wainscoting panels and the fact this cake shop opens until 10 pm. Eight denotes 8 signature cakes and desserts and Twelve steps of baking process required.
The cakes are delicious, moist and airy. The blueberry cake is very flavourful with fresh blueberries. I love that it isn’t very sweet.
The strawberry sponge on the hand reminds me a traditional Asian birthday cake. The sweetness again was very mild but it was very pleasing. I love the fresh airy cream.
I can not wait to come back. Neither could Emily. Her eyes lit up when she saw the cake!
If you love Asian cakes and desserts that are mildly sweet, I recommend you to come try 812 Cake. Their Matcha Roll and Strawberry Cheese Tarts are also very delicious!

This global Taiwanese dessert franchise, Meet Fresh Richmond 鲜芋仙, opened its first location in Richmond on Capstan Way. It then opened a second Metro Vancouver location at 1232 Robson Street. Popular menu item includes taro balls, shaved iced, fresh herbal jelly and tofu pudding. I was really excited to try it after seeing so many Instagram photos but left rather disappointed.
The restaurant offers only counter service: order at the front and pick up on the side when your number is called. Then find your own seat.
Tofu Pudding with Taro and Red Beans: sugary with minimal taro and red bean. There was also barely any tofu pudding. I was hoping for more toppings rather than sugary bowl of water.
Taro Mochi and mixed bean ice: My cousin ordered a bowl of shaved ice with mixed beans. It had more toppings but again it was bland and uninteresting.
In the end they forgot to give us the packets of cream in the end. We were expected to clean up the tables after we were done and bring back the dirty dishes to the return station.

In celebration of Canada’s Jubilee Anniversary, Notch 8 Restaurant and Bar, invites you to their Canada 150 Afternoon Tea. In honour of the true North strong and free, the private dining room is adored with vintage photographs of Fairmont Hotels across the country and archival images of Canadian Pacific locomotives. History aside, the Canada 150 Afternoon Tea takes you from the green copper roofs, chateau style architecture, grand ballrooms and storied pasts to a culinary journey from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Indulge in delicious Saskatoon berry compote, delectable and distinctively Canadian tea sandwiches including Montreal Smoked Meat and Lobster Rolls, and in-house baked sweets.
To begin, guests select their preferred choice of Fairmont fine tea blend. My favorite continues to be the Fairmont Earl Grey and the 1907 Centennial Blend of kenmare, malty assam and a touch of earl grey. If you prefer to add a little bourbon, we highly recommend the Maple Leaf Cocktail – a cocktail made with Maple Maple (black tea with notes of caramel), Canadian bourbom, maple syrup, lime and apple.
The Canadian journey begins with Maple Panna Cotta, Wild Berry and Oka Scone Saskatoon served with berry compote and birch syrup Chantilly.
Presented in Royal Doulton is a tower of savouries. There is a lot to choose from and everything is so delicious. It is hard to pick which one to try first.
Maple Foie Gras Tourtiere – miniature confit duck savory pie from Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac ; an elevated Calagary Stampede corn dog made with Wagyu beef, blue corn grits and tomato relish from Fairmont Palliser; Lobster Roll from New Brunswick; to the Mini West Coast Club – Dungeness crab, smoked salmon, side stripe prawns, smoked oyster and albacore tuna from our very own Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. And don’t forget the iconic Montreal Smoked Meat from Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal and the Peameal Bacon Sandwich made with Canadian bacon and Ontario Cheddar from Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
The food continues with the presentation of sweet. The treats are presented on a Canadian map. Chocolate dipped Nanaimo Bars from Fairmont Empress in Victoria, BC, Canadian Mini Donuts, Crispy Beaver Tails from Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa and more.
Canada 150 Afternoon Tea is available between May 1 to September 3, 2017. $59 per person. Children’s menu $29.50 per child (ages 12 and under). Daily sittings 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.
The portion is substantial although all miniature in size. It is artfully crafted and has many great options in both savoury and sweet treats.
Fairmont Hotel Vancouver History Tidbit:
Canadian Pacific Railway opened this Hotel Vancouver in 1888. The second build was in 1916. The present Hotel Vancouver first opened its doors in 1939, on the eve of the Royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The hotel was built in a grand Italianate revival style, and was considered one of the great hotels of the British Empire. A meeting place for Vancouver society.
