Cheaters Green Tea Ice Cream

Beth Renzetti


I love Haagen-Dazs Green Tea ice cream. LOVE. It's such a delicate flavor & tastes extra creamy - like cream not just a textural creamy. I can't always find it so I got some vanilla ice cream and added my own green tea. :) And some extra cream. :) :) We all loved it. Now I can buy more economical larger containers of vanilla and make green tea ice cream whenever I want! Posted for Culinary Quest 2 - 2015

5 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 pt
your favorite vanilla ice cream
2 Tbsp
matcha green tea powder
2-4 Tbsp
heavy cream, cold

Directions Step-By-Step

Soften ice cream just enough to get it out of the container & transfer it to a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
Add 2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder that has been sifted. Otherwise there may be wee clumps that aren't BAD but the ice cream would be better without.
Beat until smooth, adding a couple tablespoons of cream until it is very creamy.
Beat until well incorporated, scraping sides as necessary with a spatula. It will be very soft so refreeze or eat immediately.
