300 milk ml
90gram brown sugar
5** green teaspoon matcha powder (Using Maruyu Omacha Powder)
a pinch of salt
150ml whipping cream
** I notice when i use a different brand of Green Tea, 5 teaspoon would be too much. Thus watch the original video or season to taste. In ice cream its a bit difficult to season to taste since you will only know how it taste at the end. Thus you may need to use some trial error.
This green tea ice cream is really easy to make.
Just mix the milk, brown sugar and green tea powder. Beat till the sugar dissolve. Add in the salt.1
Put ice in a big bowl and put a smaller bowl in the big bowl. Pour the cream in (the small bowl) and beat the whipping cream till its peak.2
Pour the matcha mixture into the whipping cream and stir gently till its mix. Pop into the freezer for 2 hours and pour it into you ice cream maker!
1 The green tea powder is really light and will fly off easily. Using a spoon, mix the green tea powder with the milk before you start beating. Else the green tea powder can spill out and the precious green tea powder would be wasted. I have a small blender. I just dump all the ingredient into the blender carefully and start blending. It is easier and get the job done faster!
2 How to see the whipping cream has peak? There will be a cone shape stuck to the beater when you lift up the beater. If the cream doesnt get stuck to the beater means that you have to continue beating. However stop beating once you have seen the cone shape.
I like the taste of the green tea ice cream. The taste is light and creamy. I prefer to eat this ice cream with a cone. When i ate it in a cup i like to sprinkle in grind nuts, wafer and whip cream. The recipe is taken from you tube How to Make Green Tea Ice Cream (Matcha Ice Cream) i have modified the green tea quantity and also add in salt. The flavour is more pronounce.
