Fat-Free Green Tea Pudding & Ice Cream Recipes (Low Fat)

Green Tea Rice Pudding

Ingredients

  • 1 quart (4 cups) skim milk

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp green tea powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

In medium saucepan, whisk together green tea powder and milk. Add rice, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, about 30 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent milk from scorching and rice from sticking to the pan.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

rice pudding is one of my favorite recipes this time of year. I had never thought of mixing in green tea (matcha)

I did try something similar once, but I used a prepared chai tea to boil the rice in. The warm spices blended in really nicely with the cinnamon. I sorta winged it - not a true recipe, but oh so good.

Great hub - thank you! :)

If you really don't like green tea at all, you might want to try lower amounts of matcha powder until you see how much you can tolerate. You'll probably find that you get used to the taste, and can increase the amount of green tea in the recipes over time.

This looks great because I really don't like the taste of green tea that much, but this way it may just work! thanks! :)

Yummy! I absolutely love matcha and I love trying it out in various ways, adding it to different recipes like matcha latte, matcha cakes, matcha muffins, matcha ice cream, matcha truffles, etc. (you get the idea). I remember reading an article stating that one cup of matcha is equal to 10 cups of regular green tea. It doesn't get any better ^_^

Thanks for sharing!
