Matcha Ice Cream

Can't wait to share this recipe here as it's real yummy after my first attempt. This recipe from "The Perfect Scoop" is a winner! I feel that the key ingredients for this recipe is using a quality green tea powder or named it matcha powder. This matcha powder will always in my pantry no matter for making cakes or ice cream, stock on-hand is a must! I've tried few recipes from The Perfect Scoop, there are all excellent. If you could make a good custard, it's not a problem making a rich, creamy and smooth ice cream. Just to need some patient on cooking the custard at a little low heat from the stove and you're nearly there. Making it into something extra, give a big scoop of matcha ice cream top on a piece of green tea lotus swiss roll is a bonus!
Recipe of The Perfect Scoop:
250ml whole milk 150g sugar (I used 100g only) Pinch of salt 500ml heavy cream 4 teaspoons matcha 6 large egg yolks
Warm the milk, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan. Pour the cream into a large bowl and whisk in the green tea powder. Set a mesh strainer on top.

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Slowly pour the warm mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly, then scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan. Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.

Pour the custard through the strainer and stir it into the cream, then whisk it vigorously until custard is frothy to dissolve the green tea powder. Stir until cool over an ice bath. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Hi Grace,
Which type of milk is call whole milk? And which brand of heavy cream do you use? Is it a non-diary whipping cream? OR ????

Please advise.

Hi Michelle,
I bought this matcha powder from the ShowHouse Isetan supermarket.

Hi Yuri,
Sure, I can teach you. Actually I'm not that good in designing the blog. However, I try my best to help you. Please tell me what look you want ok.

Hi Honey Bee Sweets,
I was just quite boring with the old look, please tell me if this is not nice. Your blog is pretty enough! I wonder where you did you get so many cartoon picture. There all looks cute!

Hi Melinda,
Whole milk is full fat milk rather than semi or skim milk. I used daily cream for my ice cream, it gives better texture.

Hi Small Small Baker,
Haha..I think I'm having the same header from others :P Hopefully they don't say I coppy from them.
