While mixing the ingredients, you need to carefully pour the milk and continue to stir so you avoid the formation of lumps. After a few minutes, consider straining the mixture and pour it back into the pan.

At this point, you need to place the pan on a low flame and leave it there until you notice the milk has thickened, but don’t forget that it’s very important you continue to stir it at all times. After that, take the pan off the heat and set it aside.

4. It’s time for you to mix together the hot water and the matcha until you get a smooth paste. If you don’t know what match is, well, they are basically green tea leaves grown in the shade and are generally used in wagashi and the Japanese tea ceremony.

5. Get a separate bowl and carefully whip the cream until you notice it becomes a bit stiff. After that, considering folding the milk and lastly, add in the matcha paste.

6. You’re just about done with making the green tea ice-cream and all you need to do now is pour it into a plastic or maybe a metal container and allow it to set at normal refrigerator temperature. After 2h, take it out, whisk it and then place it in the fridge once again. This process needs to be repeated about three to four times until the ice cream has become smooth.

7. Finally, you can now enjoy the ice-cream, so serve it with cherries and orange sections for a special look and a mouthwatering exquisite taste![2]
