Green Tea Ice Cream Calories
It can have as few as 80 calories per 1/2cup for a low fat version to well over 200 calories per ½ cup serving for a rich egg and cream based variety. So the bottom line is, what type of Green Tea Ice Cream are you eating?
There are low fat soy based versions and full creamer varieties. One of the things they all have in common is that they are not made from traditional brewed green tea! The beautiful green color of the ice cream comes from Matcha. Matcha is green tea powder!
It is readily available for purchase in health food stores, oriental specialty stores and larger tea shops. It is used in most Green Tea Recipes.
Matcha contains all the powerful antioxidants of the green tea leaf. The leaf has been processed into a powder form straight from the field. So Matcha is actually a very powerful healing herb.
The Matcha is added to water prior to being blended into most ice creams. Home recipes call for the blending and cooking of eggs and cream and then the folding in of whipping cream to make this yummy desert.
Here is a Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe for you to try at home if you are not at all worried about calorie intake! Just check out these rich ingredients.
You do need and ice cream maker to use the above recipe.
Place all of the above ingredients in a sauce pan and on very low heat, cook the mixture as you would a custard, slow and steady. That is the key to producing a good quality Green Tea Ice Cream. Stir constantly until the mixture gets really thick. Don’t worry, it will cook unevenly and you will end up with ‘little lumps’ of cooked egg. Once thickened, strain the mixture and cool prior to following your manufacturer directions for your ice cream maker.
