Green Tea Ice Cream

What do you do with all that left over whipping cream from your dad's b-day cake icing? Make ice cream of course! I had bought a tin of match powder a while back and decided to finally use it's awesome Green Tea power! And the best form of green tea (besides the brewed tea itself) is as ice cream. I dare someone to challenge that notion... jkjk
Green Tea Ice Cream (Serves 4)
- 1 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp green tea powder (matcha)
- 1/4 cup sugar (or more... depending on taste)

1. Mix cream and milk
2. Add in green tea powder and sugar gradually (to prevent lumps forming).
Note: if lumps do form don't sweat it. Just use a strainer and get rid of them!
3. Place in a metal bowl and stick it in the freezer.
4. Freeze for 1 hr and then mix it. Freeze for another hour and mix again (at this point you can actually start eating it, if you're freezer is cold enought to have frozen the mixture thoroughly)

As you can see from my photo, I used a fork and scraped some of the ice cream into submission :P I loved the matcha taste. And my sister, who generally doesn't like matcha flavored anything actually found it easy to polish off an entire bowl.

The color on the ice cream looks amazing. What kind of matcha did you use for this. Does it have to be a special green tea powder for ice cream?
