(Photo from Japan Guidebook)

Green tea ice cream has a smooth delicious flavor.  Like Vanilla is not a strong flavored ice cream. However, the ice cream featured in the photo is matcha (green tea) ice cream, which is stronger than green tea ice cream in the United States. Green tea originates from China.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons dry green tea
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla pod
  • 1 1/4 cups double (heavy) cream
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water

DirectionsTake the dry green tea and soak in boiling water with the tablespoon of sugar for 10-12 minutes.

Into a saucepan put the vanilla pod and milk and gently bring to the boil then pour this over the tea. Leave to stand for 5 or 6 minutes.

Beat the egg yolks with the 1/4 cup caster sugar in a separate bowl and then strain the milk mixture into it.

Transfer to a saucepan and gently heat, stirring all the time, until the mixture is thick. Leave to cool. Whip the double (heavy) cream and fold into the cooled tea mixture. Transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
