If you enjoy the refreshing taste of green tea, then you will love the creamy, sweet, yet sprightly taste of green tea ice cream. This delicious treat hits all the right notes and is fairly healthy, too. So, you don’t need to feel as guilty about doubling up on your scoops.
Place the coconut milk beverage in a pan and heat it over a medium flame. When it is hot and steaming, take the milk off the heat. Don’t allow it to boil.
Allow all the green tea bags to steep in the milk for five minutes. Before tossing the bags away, make sure to squeeze them out into the milk. This will ensure that there is a more concentrated green tea taste.
Add the sugar to the green tea milk mix and whisk until all the sugar is fully dissolved. Then, add the coconut milk and whisk once more. You will notice that the green tea ice cream is rather pale in color. This is normal.
Place the mix into a durable glass container – one that can be placed in the freezer for a long time. Allow the mix to cool to room temperature then place it in the freezer.
After 45 minutes in the freezer, take the ice cream mixture out. If it has begun to freeze around the edges, stir it thoroughly with a whisk. It is important to completely break up the frozen parts and mix them with any semi-liquid portions.
Place the ice cream mix back in the freezer and leave it there for 30 minutes. Then, take the ice cream out and break it up and mix it once more. Continue to do this at 30-minute intervals until the 2 or 3-hour mark.
When you are satisfied with the texture, you can serve the ice cream.
