I have never thought of getting an ice cream maker until i saw many bloggers sharing their lovely ice cream recipes. Also I feel this is the right timing to own one, since my kids are still young, and they love ice cream very much (when kids have grown up, no demand then how to make right?). After I failed to get a lovely pink ice cream maker (Cxxxx brand) , I have no choice just bought an ordinary Kxxx brand ice cream maker..The first recipe i tried out was this Matcha ice cream which is my family's favourite ice cream.
Also i want to try this matcha powder that i bought from Kyoto, 100% made with green tea.
Let see what we need to make the yummy Matcha ice cream..
Cook the mixture..
Take out the ice cream bowl which has freezed for 24hours..(This is cheaper unit if compare to those unit come together with compressor )
Churn for 20-25mins
Matcha ice cream is ready, freeze for several hours before enjoy..
We always like to serve matcha ice cream with red bean paste (this is home cooked red bean paste, what i did was reserved some of the cooked red bean from red bean soup, add more sugar and cook till thick paste, simple and easy )
I could not find "half-and-half " as mentioned in Just One Cookbook, so i made some changes. Also do not reduce the amount of matcha powder. This is because the first batch i made was tasted like teh tarik ice cream after i reduced the matcha powder, hehehe..I also like this recipe because it is eggless..
