  • 75 g (2.6 oz) tofu (I use smooth tofu (kinu dofu) but you can use firm tofu (momen dofu) as well.)
  • 20 g (0.7 oz) sugar (I use zero-calorie sugar made from monk fruit, but use any type of sugar you like.)
  • 7 g (0.2 oz) shio koji
  • 5 g (0.2 oz) lemon juice
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) yogurt


  • Open up a sealable plastic bag and secure it in a little glass or a container so it will be easy for us to add the ingredients inside the bag.
  • To this, add all ingredients.
  • Then seal the bag and mix everything together.

If you have an ice cream maker

  • Go ahead and use your ice cream maker to freeze this mixture.

If you don't have an ice cream maker

  • Don't worry, I'll show you how to make it into ice cream without the machine.
    First, flatten out the bag, and place it in the freezer and let it sit there for three hours or longer until the mixture becomes frozen.
  • Once the mixture is frozen, take out the bag from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes until the mixture becomes a little softer.
  • Okay, about 20 minutes have passed. Let's knead the frozen mixture and make it really soft. I suggest you wear gloves so you don't freeze your hands.
  • Once the mixture becomes really soft, gather it to the bottom of the bag.
  • Then open up the bag and scoop up the ice cream.
  • You see it's really soft and like 30% melted? That's the best time to eat this ice cream. Enjoy!
