Green Tea Ice Cream



The weather was unbearably Hot and Humid lately that we stayed indoor most of the time. Hiding in the house with the air-con on most of the time. I made Green Tea Ice Cream and tried out my 1st attempt at making Sushi. Needless to say who were the happy ones in the family that weekend. My Piggies of course ! :))


I will post up the sushi pictures in my next post . I am no novice at making ice cream :P I love making ice cream thus I made this Green Tea flavoured ice cream for the Piggies as a dessert after feasting on homemade Sushi. We love anything Japanese so no problem with the green tea flavoured ice cream. If you are a green tea lover then you will most probably love this ice cream too.

For this ice cream you need to get the good green tea powder , preferably those from Japan . They are more fragrant and will make your green tea ice cream yummilicious, just the fragrance will be enough to make you yearn for another scoop !

The fragrance of the green tea powder
makes you yearn for another scoop :))


The hot and humid weather makes the ice cream
melts fast :(

  4. I love green tea ice cream. I would like to try your recipe. May I know what kind of whipped heavy cream are you using? Do I need to whip the cream before mix into the egg yolks mixture?

  5. Hi Kitchen Corner,

    I used Anchor's UHT Whipping Cream and I whipped the heavy cream till it thickened but not stiff before adding into the egg mixture.

    Btw, you can add in another tbsp of sugar if you prefer it sweeter. I have reduced it to my taste :)

    Hope you will like it :)

  12. Matcha Green Tea can be used to make a dreamy ice cream. Just scald 1/2 cup of whole milk over low heat and stir in 1/3 cup of raw cane sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves and then remove the milk/sugar from the stove. In a bowl, whisk three egg yolks together and then slowly pour about 1/4 of the milk/sugar mixture into the bowl with the egg yolks while continuing to whisk. Put the remaining milk/sugar mixture back on the stove on low heat and add your egg yolk mixture into the pot slowly. Stir continuously and wait for the mixture to thicken a little.


    Then remove it from the heat and pour it back into your bowl. Mix 1 tablespoons Matcha powder and 1/8 cup water together to form a paste. Mix that with 1 cup heavy cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla and add that Matcha mix to your milk/yolk mix. Whisk them together, and allow them to cool. Add this mixture to your ice cream maker and enjoy!
