Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
Matcha green tea flavored ice cream is a perfect dessert to serve after a Japanese-style meal.


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


Mix hot water and green tea powder together in a bowl and set aside. Lightly whisk egg yolks in a pan. Add sugar in the pan and mix well. Gradually add milk in the pan and mix well. Put the pan on low heat and heat the mixture, stirring constantly. When the mixture is thickened, remove the pan from the heat. 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. Or, pour the mixture in a container and freeze, stirring the ice cream a few times.
*Makes 4-6 servings

Being a lover of green tea ice cream and owner of an ice cream maker I thought I'd give this a shot. I wasn't disappointed at all. Very rich and creamy. I used eggbeaters and non fat half and half for whole milk to give a few less calories. Very happy with it and will definitely make again. Great recipe.
