Matcha Ice Cream - NO MACHINE NEEDED!

We've already covered the health benefits of matcha tea and some of the many creative ways you can incorporate it in your daily routine. You can find our health post here and our video on the many uses of matcha here.

Now we're going to show you our method for home made ice cream that requires no ice cream machine, however you will need a hand blender, and only requires three to four ingredients! Not only is making homemade ice cream fun, but you also know what's IN your ice cream. And the less there is, the better. It's high time we get back to simplicity. And what could be more exciting than making and enjoying your own homemade within the next 24 hours?

Main Ingredients:

  • 1 pint or 475 mL of Heavy Cream
  • 235 mL of Whole Milk or Evaporated Milk
  • 3/4 cup of Sugar
  • Salt

Side Ingredients:

  • Matcha/Flavored Matcha
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Vanilla
  • Etc.


  • Large bowl
  • Small metal bowl
  • Hand blender
  • Ice cubes (tray or machine)
  • Freezer safe jar for storage

As for the recipe, we found someone online who made a great video of the method we use. So good, in fact, we wouldn't say it was worth making one ourselves. They have great visuals, clear concise steps, and for the most part it's straight to the point. The narrator will tell you when to add your side ingredients.

You can find the link here.

So that's it. The Tea & Spice Shoppe has made strawberry and matcha ice cream using this recipe. For the amounts made in the video, you can try adding anywhere between a tea to tablespoon. Start small and see if you would prefer more of the earthy matcha flavors!
