  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder, or more to taste

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs


  1. Whisk matcha powder in a bowl to remove any lumps; add a splash of milk and whisk until matcha powder is completely dissolved. Gradually whisk remaining milk into matcha mixture.

  2. Combine cream and matcha mixture in a pot over medium-low heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  3. Whisk sugar and eggs together in a bowl. Pour 1/2 cup hot matcha mixture into egg mixture; mix thoroughly. Repeat with remaining matcha mixture. Pour mixture back into the pot.

  4. Cook and stir matcha mixture over medium-low heat until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours.

  5. Pour cooled matcha mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
