Fluffy and Rich Kinako Soy Flour Mousse

Fluffy and Rich Kinako Soy Flour Mousse

This is the Kinako soy flour version of "Simple fluffy and rich green tea mousse". The calories have been drastically reduced (see Step 8). Top it with whatever you like.

Ingredients: 2 150 ml containers for 2 people

◎Powdered gelatin
1 teaspoon (=3g)
2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons (=10g)
15~20g (see notes)
Heavy cream
For the topping: (anything you like)
Black beans, sakura flowers, brown sugar syrup, etc.
As much as you like


1. Prepare a small bowl, sift the powdered gelatin into the ◎ water, and let soak.
2. Place all of the ☆ ingredients in a small pot, heat over low, dissolve the kinako soy flour and sugar while stirring with a wooden spatula. Make sure not to let it boil. Add ◎ as well and dissolve.
3. Transfer Step 2 to a bowl, let cool, and chill so that it solidifies. This is a light combination, so you should let it chill in the fridge after it cools to make things easier.
4. Add heavy cream in a separate bowl, and beat until it reaches the same thickness as Step 3. Pour into Step 3 in two batches. Gently stir with a rubber spatula the second time around.
5. Pour into individual containers, chill in the fridge to solidify, and it is done.Top with you favorite topping (not listed, anything you like). I used leftover black beans from New Year's fest. You can even use sweet roasted walnuts or adzuki beans.
6. Addendum: After it has solidified in Step 3, let sit for a while at room temperature, then stir well with a whisk, and it will turn out just like the photos.
7. This is sakura cherry blossoms pickled in salt (the salt has been removed), and decorated with pistachio. It has a faint taste of salt. If you are using this kind of garnish, then 20g of sugar is sufficient.
8. This is about 255 calories per person using regular milk. It has about 128 calories when using low-fat milk. Assuming you use 20g of sugar, organic heavy cream, and without toppings. Use artificial sweetener for those of you that need to cut calories even further.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this because I like kinako soy flour, and there wasn't a version for it.
