Hong Kong-based campaign Green Monday unveiled the region’s first oat-based mochi frozen desserts at its plant-based café and grocery store concept, Green Common. The new brand Oatchi which will be available at select outlets contains 17% fewer calories than its dairy counterpart.
Green Common launched the Oatchi series, the first-ever oat-based mochi frozen desserts to debut in Hong Kong. Created with natural, plant-based ingredients, this mochi ice cream is a twist on the conventional one and is supposed to be ideal for health-conscious consumers.
Free from chemicals
The plant-based ice cream fillings are available in three different flavours namely green tea, mango, and strawberry. In addition to being vegan-friendly, the ice creams are free from added artificial flavours, colours, and preservatives.
Fewer calories, less sugar
All three flavours have less than 50 kcal and compared to dairy-based versions, on average the vegan ice creams are 17% less in calories. They are even 32% less in saturated fats and 19% less in sugars.
