With an origin stretching back over one hundred years, green tea ice cream has long been a favored dessert in Japan and other parts of Eastern Asia. The sticky-sweet treat, made with Pure Matcha powder, has recently made a splash in Western culture, too, and can now be found at your neighborhood grocery store in addition to local Japanese restaurants. That said, homemade green tea ice cream is incredibly easy to make and personalize at home. This recipe has only a handful of ingredients and doesn’t require an ice cream maker!
Since you’re already spending time outside on your grill, why not add a dessert? There’s something about how the flames of a grill can turn any fruit into a caramelized, smoky treat. I recommend picking fruits like peaches, melons, pineapple, pears, bananas, and figs which will hold their shape while cooking. So just throw YOUR favorite on a hot grill and stand by while they develop gorgeous grill marks. You can do it plain, kabob style, over ice cream, or like I have, over crepes! And, since crepes are basically thin pancakes, this is one dessert that can be made for breakfast – just add Greek or Icelandic yogurt for some protein!
