Ingredients

  • 2 Cups plain soy milk
  • 2 Tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 4 Teaspoons Matcha powder (powdered green tea)
  • Two 12-ounce boxes silken tofu
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Whisk together 1/4 cup soy milk and arrowroot until well incorporated. Then add the matcha until you have no clumps. Set aside.

Blend the rest of the ingredients (except the vanilla) in a blender until very smooth. Pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove from heat immediately. Add in the matcha mixture and vanilla, let cool. Add mixture to a container with a lid and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours then move to freezer. As soon as ice crystals begin to form, remove and mix well to break up the crystals and return to the freezer. Repeat a few times to keep smooth, over 2-3 hours.

Green Tea Shopping Tip

Look for high-quality green teas in Asian markets or specialty tea stores. Loose-leaf blends tend to be higher quality than grocery store brands.

Green Tea Cooking Tip

Most green teas require a lower temperature water than black teas, which typically require boiling water. Invest in a thermometer to ensure that the water you use on delicate green tea is the right temperature.
