Not able to find the green tea flavor Häagen-Dazs® ice cream ( where i consume at least once a month back in US) in local shop force me to make myself. The first batch was failed because of the artificial green tea powder bought at the local bakery shop with the pre-ready ice-cream powder that turn out a weird taste ice-cream. ( or maybe i'm too picky in green tea flavor). So i search for the matcha green tea powder and finally able to bought it from ebay. It's originally from Japan (what claimed by the seller) and after some research on internet and + some ideas from mom this how i made the ice-cream.
1 cup Milk
1 cup heavy cream/ whipping cream
1/4 cup Sugar ( personally don't like too sweet so if you like sweeter can adjust to 1/2 cup)
3 Tbsp Matcha green tea powder
7 Tbsp of hot water
Mix green tea powder with hot water in a separate cup and set aside
In a saucepan add milk, whipping cream, sugar and the green tea mixture.
Cook the mixture until all the sugar dissolved.
cool down the mixture and store in a freezer ( 30 minutes)
after the mixture solidified take out and beating in a mixer. ( after 4 hours ++)
turn the mixer to high power to make sure the hard ice-cream is beat to creamy soft then store into freezer again( follow this step few time, to make sure the ice-cream is soft)
done..and enjoy your homemade matcha green tea ice-cream
