I have become completely addicted to Matcha Green Tea. If you are not familiar with Matcha, here is a link to a rather lengthy but fascinating description. It is from the seller I buy my matcha from.
You can order Matcha by googling for sites, keyword "Matcha" or looking in the Japanese section of your grocery store. My personal favorite is Shizuoka, but you can use any quality Matcha Powder you like.
I think you get better results with an Ice Cream maker, but alternative directions are given. Cooking time is dependent on your ice cream maker, or process used.
You will have a hard time believing that this frozen treat is not really ice cream, but is a good-for-you all fruit dessert. I serve this to the kids in the family and they love to build their own sundaes. It melt fast, so serve it right away or stick it in the freezer.
Super-easy and popular with the kids -- what could be better?! To make Rocky Road Pudding Pops add 1/4 cup each semi-sweet chocolate chunks, miniature marshmallows, and chopped peanuts with the whipped topping. Chocolate is, of course, the best ;o), but you can use your favorite flavor of pudding in place of the chocolate if you prefer. :o) Cook time is freeze time.
This is so so so good and cold on a hot summer's day! You can also make it up to 2 months in advance, so you can have it ready for unexpected guests :) I have modified this so much and tried it different ways, but the best is below with all of the optional ingredients used! I am the "dessert person" at all of the family gatherings and this is the most requested all the time! Enjoy!
Someone bought me a Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book (title). This book is great it tells how to make most of their flavors and some. The book can be ordered at the bookstore for about $8.95. The reason I like this ice cream is because you can freeze it and it is like the store bought hard ice cream. I do not eat it right from the freezer because to me it is to creamy. French Vanilla
(For electric Ice Cream Machines) This recipe makes a delicious, soft, custard-type ice cream. If you prefer a firmer ice cream, you can chill it for an extra cycle in your ice cream machine or place it in a bowl in your freezer for an hour before serving. Prep time includes the 1 hour chilling time and the 1/2 hour beat/freezing time.
I love the Dairy Queen Mint Blizzard....but they're both expensive and deadly. This gives the PERFECT texture...With light ice cream, flavoring of your choices, and skim milk, no less. It is important to use a good quality light ice cream, since it has to end up like soft serve -- I use Edy's Vanilla.
Light ice cream actually works best -- more air content in those 'double churned' types means they get better 'Blizzard Consistency'.
My kids love this on a hot summer day. I have found it works well also to divide the chocolate fudge topping and use half in step 5 and the other in step 7. You may also add a jar of caramel topping if you desire.
This recipe was posted by grinkc at recipegoldmine.com, "Although not a true spumoni ice cream this dessert is so easy, delicious and pretty. Freeze solid for an ice cream texture or partially frozen for a mousse like texture. I like to make this for my family on a festive occasions." This recipe will be included in the Zaar World Tour 2005 Swap.
I got the basic recipe off the internet but I do not remember where. I have found that many fruits will substitute readily into the recipe. The original recipe was for pineapple (which was great), but the cherry is even better. It also works well for peaches, strawberries and mangoes.
