Green Tea Ice Cream (Matcha Ice Cream) 抹茶アイスクリーム

The Japanese love everything in green tea flavor, we have Kit Kat in green tea flavor, mochi, and my favorite ice cream as well. Since I moved to the US from Japan, I've been quite disappointed with the green tea ice cream here because it's too creamy. I prefer green tea ice cream to have a tart bitterness taste and not too creamy. I am happy to announce I found a recipe that closely resembles the green tea ice cream I enjoyed growing up in Japan.

I love sweets and especially sweets with red bean and green tea. In Japan we have green tea flavor for everything, including Kit Kat bars! Here's a green tea cookie vegan recipe shared by my good blogger friend Roxana. Time for me to make some green tea and enjoy the cookies!

Lychee Coconut Sorbet

Lychee Coconut Sorbet

It's been a warm June in the bay area so the weather is perfect for experimenting with different flavors of ice creams and sorbets. I always loved the unique taste of lychee so when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it. The result was super delicious and perfect for cleaning the palate after a greasy meal.

Mango Ice Cream

Mango Ice Cream

My family loves the mango sorbet and ice bar from Trader Joe's. Unfortunately they are often out of stock and we come back disappointed. Armed with the new ice cream maker, we can now enjoy fresh mango ice cream whenever we want. The result is super rich and tasty, surprise your guests with some homemade mango ice cream this summer!
