After my first attempt at making the green tea ice cream, hubby suggested that I make the ice cream with a stronger green tea flavor. I increased the the amount of green tea powder in my next attempt and did not like the flavor or the texture much. It was a little too grainy/powdery for my liking.
So, here’s the green tea ice cream recipe that I like! =) The first time I made the ice cream, I used 3/4 cups of sugar which I found a lil too sweet. In this new recipe, I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cups.
GREEN TEA ICE CREAM RECIPE
- 4 Tbsp Green Tea Powder
- 2/3 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Milk, Divided
- 2 Cup Heavy Cream
Heat 1/2 cup of milk for about 40-60 seconds in the microwave. Slowly sieve the green tea powder into the hot milk while whisking the milk quickly until all powder has dissolved. Add sugar, milk and continue whisking until sugar is dissolved. Stir in heavy cream.
Turn the ice cream maker on and pour mixture into freezer bowl. Process ice cream until you get almost a soft serve consistency or according to the manufacturer’s instruction. This took me about 35-40 minutes with my Cuisinart 1.5 Quart Ice Cream Maker. Transfer ice cream into containers and freeze for 2-3 hours before serving.
