Matcha Ice Cream
400g Full fat coconut milk
1 tbsp Corn flour
1 tbsp Matcha Powder
85g Castor sugar
2 tbsp Agave syrup or maple syrup
45ml Coconut cream
Grated zest of 1 lime
Heat the coconut milk gently in a saucepan over a low heat.
Put 4 tbsp of the warm milk in a small bowl and mix with the corn flour and
Matcha powder until smooth and lump-free.
Add sugar to the saucepan and stir over low heat until dissolved.
Turn up the heat and as soon as it starts to boil, stir in the corn flour and
Reduce the heat and stir gently for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened, creamy, and smooth.
Remove from the heat and stir in the agave or maple syrup, coconut cream and lime zest. Set aside to cool.
Transfer to an ice cream maker or container, cover with a lid, and freeze for 3-4 hours until frozen slightly and setting around the edges.
Remove from the freezer and transfer the ice cream to a food mixer or food processor and mix briefly to break up any ice crystals and make it slushy.
Return to the container, cover, and freeze for a few hours or overnight until frozen. For smooth ice cream, repeat the process again 3-4 hours later before freezing overnight.
Remove the ice cream from the freezer about 15-20 minutes before serving to soften it slightly.
Serve the scoops dusted with Matcha powder. (IANS)
