Homemade Green Tea Ice Cream

Welcome to the first blog post since our big move!  We moved from Birmingham, AL to Tupelo, MS for my husband's job.  We are originally from this area of the world, so we came to a very familiar place.  

As you know well, this time of year is brutal, as in HOT!  Especially in North Mississippi!  Especially for a pregnant lady!!  So what do you do?  You make lots of homemade ice cream. We have been doing a recipe for chocolate ice cream that I found on Pinterest.  Tonight, I got creative with Matcha and tweaked the recipe to make Green Tea Ice Cream.  It turned out delicious!

An old school ice cream freezer that came from my husband's grandmother's house, and our new dog, Lucy in the window.

All done!  And here's the recipe:

Homemade Green Tea
Ice Cream

8 cups 2% White Milk
1 container Cool Whip
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 heaping tablespoons Jade Leaf Matcha
(Rock Salt and Ice for the sides of the ice cream freezer)
Mix all ingredients in the ice cream holder and set to spin for about 30-35 minutes, or until done.

This recipe is so simple!  I mean only 4 ingredients!  I served it in ice cream bowls, topped with honey drizzle.  You could also top ripe fresh peach halves with it and finish it off with a drizzle of honey.  Do whatever suits your fancy!  Just try this recipe soon, when you need refreshment on a hot day!
