Finding a good scoop of green tea ice cream in Perth is pretty difficult. I think I did have one before from a Japanese shop but it tasted sweeter than what I would like. Having spotted this version from Nami, I could not resist trying it.
The result is delicious! There is a good amount of green tea powder and more importantly, the right creaminess to it. It’s so good that I couldn’t stop licking my spoon as I scoop it into the container. The best thing is that it is really easy to make- and with no eggs too!!
As I write this, I noticed that Sonia from Nasi Lemak made hers too and it looks just as fantastic!
