Green Tea (Matcha) Ice Cream


















This is my first time making ice cream with an ice cream maker...yea , I finally managed to get the Kenwood model IM280 from Station 18 Jusco.  I understand that this model is discontinued.....I guess it is true for I got this for only RM269 :)  I have asked friends who have this model at home and have tested it and they told me that iit is good.....save time and energy.  Ok...so I went ahead and bought it....and tested it out myself and finds that really save time and energy.    The ice cream turned out to be much smoother in texture.  Mmmm... definitely a good buy and worth waiting for it.  And the size of the freezer bowl fitted nicely in my freezer. I don't need to remove the freezer shelf :)   It's first maiden usage was to make my favourite green tea ice cream.!

















I have manually made green tea ice cream using egg yolks and love it ! But wanting a healthier version this time, I decided to use Sonia's recipe which was adapted from Nami of Just One Cookbook which doesn't use egg yolks.  It turned out creamier and smoother. It tasted 90% like the green tea ice cream that I used to buy from the shop in Jusco selling green tea ice cream...the one that pipe out from the machine .  This is another wonderful green tea ice cream recipe! A keeper for sure :)  More ice cream for me and Wild Boar...Homemade ones are healthier...we get to control the sugar and cream :p  Yoghurt and fresh fruits are ideal for me and WB !


















I found a space for the freezer bowl.  Use a plastic bag to
cover the bowl while freezing it in the freezer compartment
to avoid contamination.  I removed the plastic bag to show
how nicely it fitted into the space :p


















first time using the ice cream maker so I was not too sure
what consistency it should be, I took the 
ice cream mixture out after 25 mins of churning,
the ice cream was not really set yet but thickened when I scooped it into
my ice cream tupper, I was scared that it will burn the motor :p

  1. I had to use a cloth to cover my KA ice cream bowl while it churns because the hot air melts the top part of the ice cream, hehehehe.
    Good thing ur maker comes with a cover.
    My maker is 5mm too tall for my freezer shelves, that makes me super lazy to make ice cream beause I have to remove one whole shelf to make way for it.
