Green tea ice cream

Green tea month..!! I still have half a bottle of green tea powder. So come on, to chill your day out, let's make green tea ice cream. I made this from the scratch. To be honest, it's my first time making ice cream from scratch. And you know what..?? It was fun !! I never thought it would be so easy.

When I tell my son about my plan to make green tea ice cream, he said "oh no....not green tea again !". I was laughing out loud. He already bored with green tea. But I kept going on with my plan on making ice cream.

Well, in this recipe I made this without ice cream maker, that's because I don't have one. But don't worry, you just need to mix the mixture couple of times. But it's worth it !

Green Tea Ice Cream

Ingredients :
3/4 cup milk
2 egg yolks
5 table spoons granulated sugar
3/4 heavy cream
1 table spoon green powder
3 table spoon hot water

How to :
1. In a small bow, mix the green tea powder with hot water. Set aside.
2. Lightly whisk egg yolks in a pan. Add sugar in the pan and mix well.
3. Gradually add milk in the pan and mix well. Put the pan on low heat and heat the mixture, stirring constantly.
4. When the mixture is thickened, remove the pan from the heat. Soak the bottom of the pan in ice water and cool the mixture.
5. Add green tea in the egg mixture and mix well, cooling in ice water.
6. Lightly whip the cream and then add it to the cold green tea-milk mixture and stir gently.
7. Transfer the mixture to a large container and put it in the freezer. As ice crystals start to form, remove, and mix well with a spoon to break them up and return the mixture to the freezer. Repeat this a few times as it freezes to ensure that the ice cream is smooth.

The ice cream is very rich and creamy. I am very happy with it and will definitely make again.
