Instructions

  • Add condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt, and matcha powder to a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  • Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks (~5 minutes).
  • Add about half the whipped cream to the bowl with the matcha condensed milk mixture. Mix together until a uniform green color.
  • Add the rest of the whipped cream and gently fold it into the mixture. Be careful not to deflate the whipped cream too much.
  • Pour cream into a freezer safe container and freeze for 6 hours or overnight.

Notes

  • If you want your ice cream to be greener and have more matcha flavor, add more matcha powder. I would highly recommend you add more than 2 tablespoons of matcha powder if you have lower quality matcha. I personally use Aiya culinary grade matcha powder.
  • Whip heavy cream to STIFF peaks - This gives the ice cream structure, so it isn't a water-y consistency. It also provides the ice cream with a bit of airiness.
  • Sift matcha powder to prevent clumping - Matcha powder tends to clump, so sifting it first prevents that from happening. If you still have some clumping, that's totally okay!
