Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream Final Picture
I first had green tea ice cream at a Thai restaurant – it quickly became one of my favorite ice creams! There are a lot of different versions to make green tea ice cream. If you want a really quick way to make it, add matcha green tea powder to vanilla ice cream that is slightly soft. I purchase my match green tea powder at my local supermarket, Wegmans. Plus you can purchase it online through My Spice Sage. You need to make this several hours before you want to serve it, as it needs to chill in the freezer.

My pictures will not be “perfect” like you will see from other bloggers. We decided we could not wait for the ice cream to freeze for several hours. I guess that is why I call my blog “realistic cooking” – everything will not be perfect – but it reflects reality for me. I served it before it was completely set so it was more of a custard texture. I like soft ice cream so it was perfect for me! Plus it was creamy and smooth! This recipe makes about 3 small servings. It would go great with a pound cake or other similar dessert.

1 Tbsp matcha green tea powder
3 Tbsp hot water
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup milk
5 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream, whipped

Mix hot water and green tea powder together in a small bowl and set aside. Try to get it to dissolve as best as you can to avoid the little chunks of green tea in your ice cream.

Gradually add milk in the pan and mix well (you are not cooking them at this time).

Put the pan on low heat and heat the mixture, stirring constantly. When the mixture is thickened, remove the pan from the heat. It took about 10-minutes to thicken but I used my lower power burner as I did not want to burn the mixture.

At this point you need to cool down the mixture. Place the mixture in a small glass bowl and place into another bowl filled with ice. Another option is to soak the bottom of the pan in ice water and cool the mixture.

Add green tea in the egg mixture and mix well, cooling in ice water.

Add whipped heavy cream in the mixture and stir gently.

Pour the mixture in an ice cream maker and freeze, following instructions of the ice cream maker. I do not have an ice cream maker. I poured the mixture into a large container and placed in the freezer. I stirred it a few times until frozen through enough that it can be served.

    I really need to get an ice cream maker .

    1. Bernice says:

      I do not have one so I stirred my ice cream mixture every 30-minutes or so. For a small amount it worked okay, but I could imagine that a large recipe would require an ice cream maker.

        Oh my really? I don’t think I have that kind patience ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ

      2. Bernice says:

      3. samokan says:

        Yes, just a little bit of stirring. It was worth the effort. 🙂
