Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe

Updated on July 24, 2013

DELICIOUS - Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe

Before I go on to actually explain this green tea ice cream recipe I suppose I had better explain what 'Green Tea' ice cream actually is.

Well basically put - the name is obvious. Yes you guessed it, it's green tea ice cream. Simple as that!

It actually is a Japanese flavour of ice-cream ( matcha ice). I did some research on-line using 'Wikipedia' and discovered the full Japanese words as: Green tea ice cream (Matcha aisu kurīmu?) or matcha ice (Matcha aisu). Feel free to confirm this at Wikipedia.

You can actually buy commercial brands of this green tea ice cream recipe from companies such as Haagen Dazs however I created this lens to share with you a great recipe I was given.

      This sounds much better than the commercial store brand I tried and didn't eat.

      That actually looks quite delicious. A really interesting lens this one. I may give this a go myself. I have never heard of 'Green Tea Ice Cream' before and so it was the title of your piece that drew me in. Anyway, well done on a great-looking lens.

      Never heard of this tea. In the family we all love ice-screams, so I might give it a try. :-)
