Green Tea Ice Cream

This summer, add a healthy kick to ice cream by making it with antioxidant-rich green tea. The flavor combination, which is popular in Japan, gives ice cream a refreshing, herbal taste. Our easy-to-make version uses powdered green tea, or matcha, found in Asian grocery stores and many natural-foods stores.


Green Tea Ice Cream How-To

In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup reduced-fat milk and 3/4 cup sugar until sugar is nearly dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in 2 cups heavy cream. One tablespoon at a time, add 4 tablespoons green-tea powder, whisking continuously to prevent lumps from forming. Transfer the mixture to an ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the soft-set ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving.
