July Sneak Peek: Mizu Yokan 水ようかん

July Sneak Peek: Mizu Yokan 水ようかん

After we released July Bokksu's theme last week, many of you may have been wondering what exactly is an example of a cooling snack Japanese people eat to combat natsubate during the summer?

Mizu Yokan

Mizu Yokan
水ようかん

Yokan is a general term for a thick, jellied dessert typically made with red bean paste, agar, and sugar. Mizu Yokan is a type of yokan that is made with more water than usual, which gives it a softer, creamier texture on every bite. It is often chilled, sliced into smaller servings, and served during the summer due to its refreshing taste.

Happy snacking!
