Matcha has been becoming great trend in outside of Japan now, and I want you to try some of Japanese sweets with it when you are here in Japan, or some of them are really easy to make, so please make them by yourself for you and your family.
Japanese sweets are thought as healthy sweets, since ingredients are red and white bean pastes, rice, Agar, beans, kudzu, yam, etc.
Yes, less fat and more fibers than cake, cookie, chocolate…
And, if you look for gluten free desserts, then Japanese sweets are good for you.
Some Japanese sweets are made with flour, but many of them are not.
But, yes, lots of sugar as same as other desserts, so just be careful when you eat them even they are yummy and healthier. 🙂
