Japanese Matcha green tea isn’t just for drinking.
The unique, bittersweet flavour and aroma of matcha makes it a perfect recipe base for both sweet and savoury treats – and dessert is no exception. Its bright and vibrant verdant colouring adds an attractive aesthetic impact to any dessert.
The most important thing to remember when cooking with Matcha green tea powder is to use fresh product, like our culinary matcha here.

Whip the cream with the remaining sugar in yet another fresh bowl. It must have a smooth consistency.

Cut through the mixture with a rubber spatula.
Place the mixture in a bowl or dish and freeze for at least four hours.
