  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 4 egg yolks

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 5 tablespoons green tea powder (matcha)


  1. Combine milk and cream in a saucepan over low heat. Slowly stir egg yolks, sugar, and green tea powder into milk mixture until green tea powder is dissolved, avoiding liquid coming to a boil, about 5 minutes. Strain mixture into a bowl and cool to room temperature, at least 30 minutes.

  2. Pour milk mixture into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions for ice cream.

Cook's Note:

The whole milk can be replaced with plain yogurt, Greek yogurt, or low-fat milk.
