Green Tea (Matcha) Ice Cream

I wanted to make green tea ice cream ever since I got the ice cream machine.  Besides, chocolate and mango, this is my favourite.  I made it without using egg yolks, and it came out very tasty and creamy!  Actually making the ice cream was easy, taking pictures of it was not. I have to plan ahead, set up my props and take it quickly before it melts!  I found some origami papers the other day in my daughter’s craft box, so I folded some paper cranes and use them as props. It’s actually quite fun to use what you have and make props out of it. Hope you like the picture and the ice cream ! 

Makes about 3 – 4 cups 

  • 1+1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1+1/2 cups cold whipping cream
