Matcha Green Tea Ice-Cream

Sunday, 26 July 2009

Custard-based? No. Churner? No. Stirring as it's freezing? No. Smooth and creamy? YES! The wild boar actually complained that it was too creamy for green tea ice-cream. Can you believe it? Men..hard to please =P


Matcha green tea ice-cream 1

Anyway, I love green tea ice-cream and I like it creamy, just like Häagen-Dazs'! Some of the green tea ice-cream I had were powdery. I wonder why. But this method, even without vigorous stirring, yields extremely smooth and creamy ice-cream. Glad to have found this method because having to keep stirring vigorously while it's freezing is quite a PITA - too much work and patience needed. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to whip up more and experiment with other flavours!

Matcha green tea ice-cream 4
Ingredients:
Adapted from Eat the right stuff

  • 1 1/4 cup evaporated milk - chilled
  • 1 cup (or less) sweetened condensed milk - chilled
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream - chilled
  • 2 1/2 tbs matcha powder

Directions:

  • Using an electric whisk, whisk evaporated milk until thickened.
  • Fold into condensed milk.
  • Whisk together heavy cream and matcha powder until thickened.
  • Fold heavy cream into evaporated milk/ condensed milk mixture (1/3 at a time).
  • Freeze.

Comments:

  • Make sure that the evaporated milk is well chilled before whisking, if not it won't thicken.
  • I would suggest using less condensed milk - about 1/4 cup or even 1/3 cup less than what I've used here as it's a bit too sweet.

I am entering this to the Ice Cream Social event hosted by Tracey of Tangled Noodle, Scott of Scotty Snacks and Jennifer of Savor the Thyme.

This is awesome!! My husband just asked about making matcha green tea ice cream. Of all the recipes I've made so far, the vanilla frozen yogurt was the creamiest but the flavor would not go well with green tea, I think. Even though I have one, I love that this comes out beautifully without an IC maker - perfect for when I don't feel like digging out the machine. 8-D

Thank you so much for participating in the Ice Cream Social!!

Those are great photos. At first I thought this was pistachio icecream. I've actually still never tried green tea icecream.

Yum, I was just reading a recipe for this in Harumi's Japanese Home Cooking, then saw this. I like it quite bitter and not so creamy though. Looking forward to having it a lot in Japan in a few months...

This looks so creamy and refreshing! Lovely photos too!

Soma said...

beautiful color & beautiful picture! I guess it was creamy without cranking your elbows .. the use of so much cream. the less cream you use there are chances of more crystals!

Matcha ice cream is my favorite. I like the sound of an ice cream made with evaporated milk and condensed milk.

Ah yes I love this method of making ice cream too! Though I learnt it from an Australian.. in OZ they use this method to make this thing called Ice Cream Slice (http://mrsmultitasker.com/2010/06/25/ice-cream-slice/) Clever adding the matcha! I must try it sometime
