Green tea ice cream is a popular dessert option at Japanese restaurants. It’s made from milk, heavy cream, sugar, egg yolks, and matcha green tea powder. Matcha isn’t like regular green tea leaves. It’s a finely ground powder that has a highly concentrated flavor.
You can see a demonstration of how green tea ice cream is made when you watch this video. The process is complex, requiring multiple heating and cooling periods, and constant stirring. Although the delicious taste is worth the effort, most people prefer to simply buy their green tea ice cream when they go to a Japanese steakhouse.
