Hey! We recently came across this Japanese ice cream brand – Madame Yuzu.
We found them in the ice cream section at the Market City (Haymarket) IGA ThaiKee supermarket.
We tried the Green Tea Matcha ice cream; the Lychee sorbet; and the Black Sesame ice cream. They came in small 125ml single serving tubs ($4.50 each- which we shared after dinner) and they were a nice dessert treat to end our home cooked meals. They weren’t too sweet, the flavours tasted genuine (the Lychee sorbet even had little bits of lychee in it), and it was creamy while not being too heavy-feeling, which might invoke feelings of guilt!
Afterwards we Googled them, and found out that they’re a boutique ice cream manufacturer based right here in Sydney and they pride themselves on producing traditional and modern Japanese ice cream flavours which tastefully mix East and West. Their ice creams are all gluten-free, natural (no artificial colours or flavours) and their sorbets are dairy-free and vegan friendly. So an unusual healthy (as healthy as ice cream can be) guilt-free treat!
Their offerings aren’t in the large supermarkets yet, but you can find them at your independent grocers like IGA (Glebe, Market City and UNSW); Miracle Supermarkets (Newtown, Waterloo and Alexandria); or Orange Supermarkets (Ultimo and Waterloo).
While you can find Madame Yuzu on the dessert menu at select Japanese restaurants like Mizuya, Yebisu Izakaya, Zushi Barangaroo, Lantern by Wagaya, Kura, Yebisu Bar & Grill and a number of others. On their web-site they have a ‘Find Us’ function, where you can type in your location and it’ll point you to the nearest restaurant/supermarket where you can try their tasty treats!

If you want a tasteful guiltless dessert, pick-up a tub of Madame Yuzu Japanese ice cream, and circle back and let me know what you think! Yeah?
