My mom is always telling me to drink green tea for the antioxidants and health benefits. But given the choice, I always choose coffee. Sorry mom! I will however, eat green tea ice cream. I can eat lots and lots of it!
I've tried a few different recipes for green tea ice cream, but my favorite is (surprise, surprise) David Lebovitz's recipe from his book "The Perfect Scoop". This ice cream is creamy and refreshing all at the same time, with just the perfect amount of green tea flavor.
The only thing I haven't been able to figure out is the ever-so-slight grittiness from the green tea powder, but perhaps that just means that I need to buy a higher quality green tea powder? In any case, I'll continue making this ice cream over and over again, because really, who doesn't love green tea ice cream?
