Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
This recipe uses real matcha powder. It was created based on Ben and Jerry's® sweet cream base.
|1 tablespoon||matcha green tea powder, or more to taste|
|1 cup||whole milk|
|2 cups||heavy whipping cream|
|3/4 cup||white sugar|
Whisk matcha powder in a bowl to remove any lumps; add a splash of milk and whisk until matcha powder is completely dissolved. Gradually whisk remaining milk into matcha mixture.
Combine cream and matcha mixture in a pot over medium-low heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes.
Whisk sugar and eggs together in a bowl. Pour 1/2 cup hot matcha mixture into egg mixture; mix thoroughly. Repeat with remaining matcha mixture. Pour mixture back into the pot.
Cook and stir matcha mixture over medium-low heat until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours.
Pour cooled matcha mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
