Matcha (Green Tea) Ice Cream

How do you turn a bucket of plain old vanilla ice cream into Matcha (green tea) ice cream without having to splurge US$3 per scoop at Japanese restaurants?

Easy. Very easy!

I learned this trick recently and thought I would share it with you, especially now when it’s summer and still sizzling hot outside. You could always use a tub of ice cream, in green tea or Matcha flavor. With Labor Day coming up soon, this quick and easy recipe will come in handy for you.

Matcha (Green Tea) Ice Cream

Matcha is a prized powdered form of green tea used particularly in the Japanese tea ceremony. Matcha has gained popularity and is now used in many recipes such as matcha almond cookies, matcha (green tea) pound cake, noodles, drinks, and all sorts of desserts.

Try this quick and easy Matcha (green tea) ice cream recipe and you will thank me for it.

    Wow, that’s soo easy, it’s scary.

    What a great idea! I had to give up flavored ice cream when I became lactose intolerant a few months ago. The only lactose free ice cream I can find is vanilla.

    But thanks to you, green tea here I come! Yay!

    Matcha is on my list of foods I’m trying to incorporate into my diet more this year. Maybe if I have it in ice cream, it won’t feel like a homework assignment!

    what a great idea… hmm.. Fei Fei will definitely like this. He is ice-cream lover and green tea ice cream is my favourite.

    I think I can try and make this for my coming house warming. Give them a surprise…

    Yummy, it is hot here and i want ice cream! But i have been hibernating for the past week with bad coughs… :-(

    How about just sprinkling matcha powder on top of the vanilla ice cream. I do that all the time with Milo. You don’t have to wait for the ice cream to melt and reharden! ;-)

    And here I am doing Green Tea Ice Cream the old fashion way. Slaving away making a custard and churning away. LOL I love Green Tea Ice! Thanks Bee for making my life less stressful. :)

    AHHHH….Clever!
    30 minutes? I think the ice-cream will melt in less than 5minutes here! But that is good – that means I can have the “re-engineered” ice-cream sooner! LOL!

    It’s really a neat trick. Thks!

    just in time for the heat of the summer!! i love love this flavor!! if my hand could only reach out! delicious!

    Fantastic! Definitely a good way to turn the plain vanilla ice-cream to something more interesting!

    Oh you are my friend! You are really my friend! I don’t have an ice cream maker and have always looked on wistfully as people have churned out sophisticated ice creams like this…no more! I have matcha and that is enough :) Yay!!! Thank you! :)

    Hey – Thanks for leaving the sweet comment on my site.. :)

    The easy Matcha ice cream is such a clever idea, you are inspiring me to try other things using this method…

  12. Zen Chef

    haha.. That should be named the quickest dessert ever. I saw this morning a matcha/white chocolate ice cream made by Ciao Bella. Interesting isn’t it? :-)

    Do you know why your Japanese visa application got rejected? Did they give you the reason? Shouldn’t it be pretty straight forward as long as you submit all the necessary documents?

    I LOVE your blog – I just found it. I need your help, though! When I use Reader to subscribe, it says you have had no new posts in the past few months! Why is nothing publishing?? I probably sound crazy, but I’m trying desperately to fill my Chinese Recipe Arsenal, and I need all the help I can get!

    This is the express way of making one Matcha Ice Cream, huh? Good to have it right here with 34 degree C in Penang!!!

  16. Marc @ NoRecipes

    And here I’ve been making my own custard and using the ice cream maker. That’s a brilliant idea!

  17. Ellie @ Kitchen Wench

    Oooh, what a nice and easy idea! I’m always a fan of something that makes my kitchen work easier ;)

  18. Mark by Chocolate

    Very nice. You might consider making your own ice cream and using a great green tea, snow needles, or even an oolong. That’s very easy too.

    Hi,
    I think this is an excellent idea because I just got some matcha from Narita’s airport. I have one slight concern. Will the melted ice cream turn harder than its original texture after the melting and reharderning process?

  20. FunCheongMaster

    I tried with your recipe last weekend. My Matcha icecream was a bit frosted. I left my vanila ice cream out for 15min because M’sia weather is quite hot and the ice cream was easy to melt. Any advice for that?

    Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent.’,:^
