Ingredients

    Roasted Blueberry Matcha Ice Cream

    • 4 large egg yolks
    • ½ cup white sugar
    • ¼ cup raw honey
    • 1 ½ cups whole milk
    • 2 ½ Tbsp Aiya Culinary Grade Matcha
    • 1 ½ cups heavy cream or whipping cream
    • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    • 1 cup roasted blueberries (see recipe below)

    Roasted Blueberries

    • 1 pint fresh blueberries
    • 1 Tbsp sugar or honey

Directions

    Roasted Blueberry Matcha Ice Cream

    1. Chill the ice cream bowl in the freezer overnight if required.
    2. In a saucepan over medium heat add the milk & Matcha. Bring to a simmer & remove from heat. Whisk until the Matcha is evenly distributed.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks, white sugar & honey until light and fluffy.
    4. Temper in a cup of the Matcha milk, whisking vigorously to ensure eggs do not cook.
    5. Pour mixture back into the saucepan & cook on low heat until it slightly thickens.
    6. Strain base into a mixing bowl and stir in heavy cream. Let the ice cream base cool overnight in the refrigerator covered. Do not skip this step; ice cream will be too soft if mixture isn't chilled properly.
    7. Transfer into an ice cream bowl and churn for 20-25 minutes.
    8. Once ready, stir in roasted blueberries and freeze in a loaf pan until frozen solid.
