Green Tea Ice Cream

Jamie Geller's Recipe for Green Tea Ice Cream


  • Prep Time : 5 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 15 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 20 min




  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons dried green tea
  • 6 large eggs yolks
  • 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream



  1. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium heat. Add green tea and let steep for 1 hour. Strain.
  2. Whisk together eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Add cream to infused milk and bring just to a simmer. Remove from heat and slowly add 2 tablespoons of warm milk mixture to egg mixture, whisking constantly. Slowly pour in remaining milk while whisking vigorously. Transfer to saucepan and return to medium-low heat. Cook slowly, being careful not to boil and stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and chill, uncovered, until cold.
  3. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for 3 hours or overnight. Store for up to one week in freezer.

    I love GREEN TEA ICE CREAM and am SO excited to see a recipe posted! When you say dried green tea, do you mean tea, from tea bags?

  2. Hi Naomi – so happy to be of service

    Buy loose leaf green tea or just use tea bags if you have them on hand. When using tea bags, cut the tea bags open and measure the amount of tea in tablespoons. If you like your ice cream extra sweet, add an additional 1/4 cup of sugar to this recipe.

    This is so awesome!!! I have peach tea and strawberry tea as well, I’m sure those would taste good when it’s made into ice cream as well!

  4. Is this recipe easy to make parve? if so what should I substitute with the milk and heavy cream. or is not even worth it?
