I hope none of you feel sick with my new post. Another green tea episode *grin*. As I once told you sometimes ago, I am a matcha green tea big fan! I make anything from matcha and never getting tired of it.
This ice cream is a fantastic treat for sunny days, it has incredibly soft texture and quite strong green tea flavor. Not too sweet, just the way I like it. But it melt easily as I am not adding any other chemical related ingredients. So I dare to say that it is a healthy homemade ice cream.
It is super easy to make, and you don't even need to re-blend them every 2 hours. But if you want to blend it again it will be your choice. I bet it will make it even fluffier.
1/3 can of white sweet condensed milk
250 ml uht cream
150 ml plain milk
3-4 tsp green tea powder*
1 tbsp maizena
*Matcha green tea powder has so many varieties, so the taste, color, and fragrant will be depending on which brand you choose. Some is more bitter, greener and flavourful than the others. This also related to how much sugar you need to use.
1. In a pan, pour the sweet condensed milk, add in the matcha green tea powder using fine strainer. DO NOT SKIP THIS STAGE. Green tea tends to have some lumps, so straining the powder is VERY important. Mix well. Turn on the stove, low heat. Add the plain milk.
2. Take few spoon of mixture, and mix well with maizena. Add in the maizena mixture and bring to the boil. Turn off heat. Let cool completely.
3. In a mixing bowl, beat the uht cream using hand-mixer, speed 4, until fluffy (appx 3 minutes). Be careful do not over mix, it might turns into butter!
4. Add the green tea mixture, mix again using high speed for about 5 minutes. Move to another leak-proof bowl or loaf pan covered with aluminium foil. Put it on your refrigerator overnight. Ready to serve.
