• 1/4 cup Thompson Organic Seedless Raisins

• 1 tsp Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce

Place the 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup maple syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes on low. Remove from the heat and allow the syrup to cool. Whisk in the matcha tea and strain the syrup through a fine sieve into a bowl. Refrigerate the syrup until chilled.

When the beans have cooled and the syrup is chilled, place 2 Tablespoons of sweet aduki beans in each individual serving bowl. Mound each serving of sweet beans with 1/4 cup shaved ice. Spoon 2 Tablespoons of the matcha flavored syrup over the shaved ice and serve immediately.

This is a traditional Japanese summer dessert, that's refreshing, cooling, satisfying and healthy.
