Matcha Ice Cream

Nowadays we used Matcha (Green Tea) in our baking, dessert, dishes, mooncakes, etc; anything you can come of with.  This Matcha Ice Cream is absolutely yummy.  Do try it if you get hold of green tea powder as the ingredients are just milk, sugar and cream in it only.  Simple and absolutely delicious!

Matcha Ice Cream
adapted from Nami of Just One Cookbook


1 cup whole milk
1 cup cream
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp Matcha (Green Tea powder)
Pinch of salt

1.  Freeze your ice cream bowl for 24 hours.

2.  In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the milk, cream, green tea powder, sugar, and salt.  Heat the
     mixture till it comes to a full boil. Keep whisking until mixture starts to foam, then remove from heat.

3. Pour the mixture to a large bowl to cool down.  Refrigerate the mixture until completely chilled.

4. Next day, pour the mixture to the ice cream bowl and churn for 20-25 minutes in the ice cream maker,
    according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Transfer into a container and freeze for at least 3 hours before

    I urge you to try it, absolutely delicious!

  4. Mel, your matcha ice cream look so professional, like those I ate at my favorite Japanese restaurant. I have attempted to make ice cream a few times. Not once I am satisfied with the texture of my ice cream. I kind of cool on making them now and put my little ice cream machine on the top shelf of my pantry. Your matcha ice cream gave me a little kick at my (you know what..hehe) and now I am thinking of taking down the ice cream machine and try making them. Matcha my second favorite flavor to vanilla for ice cream. I hope my attempt this time will be a success so that I have something to brag about! hehe
