This is a wonderful green tea ice cream. Simple to make and you will impress everyone with it.


  1. Let the ice cream soften but not melt. Stir in the green tea powder "matcha" and refreeze until firm.
  2. Matcha is sold in the tea section of Asian markets.

Bought my matcha through Amazon from Nut Online This recipe is easy and delicious. All my friends loved it. I've made green tea ice cream the hard way on a stove (and without an ice cream maker, so I had to mix every thirty minutes) and this ways is just as tasty and so much easier. I might add more powder next time, and there will be a next time!

The hardest part was finding the matcha. Once found though, it's as easy as sitting back & letting the ice cream soften. And the compliments came pouring in like I had done something hard! Hah! Too easy to impress friends, I encourage everyone to give this recipe a go. You'll love the fresh taste.

Try adding Adzuki beans to the ice cream. they come in a can or bag and are a treat and a very authentic way to eat green tea ice cream in Japan!
