Are you ready for this Matcha Ice Cream Recipe? We are! Today is National Ice Cream Day and what better way to celebrate the day than with, well, some soft ice cream for dessert! And what better time for the day to fall on than in the middle of a California heat wave. That’s right, we’ve got silver linings all over the place, folks!
But what exactly is soft ice cream? According to the National Day Calendar, soft ice cream has less milk fat and more air than hard ice cream. That means it’s smoother and lighter in texture. Plus, soft serve is best kept at a slightly higher, still-frozen temperature as opposed to the spoon-bending solidity you may find in that gallon of rocky road you bought.
Thankfully, we’ve got a wonderful matcha soft serve recipe just for this occasion! And as luck would have it, this recipe does not require an ice cream maker (it might be easier if you have one, but for our purposes, you don’t need it!). And like all our recipes, it’s made exclusively with Yum Matcha. That means no sugar and no artificial flavors.
And that’s it for this Matcha Ice Cream Recipe! Easy, right? I mean, aside from the time and the physical labor. But hey, you get dessert afterward! You’ve earned it!
“Everyone knows that ice cream is worth the trouble of being cold. Like all things virtuous, You have to suffer to gain the reward.”
And if you somehow have any left over afterward, just place in a covered container back in the freezer.
Or, skip arm day and make some more!
Happy National Soft Ice Cream Day!
