Green Tea Bingsoo
Bingsoo is a quintessential Korean summer dessert and Koreans love to come up with unique bingsoo ideas. Cafe Honesta makes all their desserts with no flour, gluten, sugar, or artificial additives. Their bingsoo is made with organic ingredients, unlike those you usually find at any chain. They even cook their own red bean and use coconut sugar which keeps flavors from being too sweet.
If you want to indulge in bingsoo, but do not want to feel too guilty, try Cafe Honesta. They pile it up, so eating bingsoo here will also be a fun test of how neatly you can eat without spilling or making an icy mess all over yourself.
