White Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Green Tea Ice Cream Sundae

    1. Chill the ice cream bowl in the freezer overnight if required.
    2. In a saucepan over medium heat add the milk & matcha powder. Bring to a simmer & remove from heat (do NOT boil). Whisk until the matcha is evenly distributed.
    3. In a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks and white sugar until combined.
    4. Temper in a cup of the matcha milk, whisking vigorously to ensure the eggs do not cook.
    5. Pour mixture back into the saucepan & cook on low heat until it thickens slightly.
    6. Strain base into a mixing bowl and stir in whipping cream. Let the ice cream base cool overnight in the refrigerator tightly covered with cling wrap. Do not skip this step, ice cream will be too soft if the mixture isn’t chilled properly.
    7. Transfer mixture to desired ice cream bowl and churn for 20 minutes.
    8. Transfer mixture to a freezer safe container and freeze until solid, about 4 hours.
    9. When ready to serve, scoop mixture into serving bowl & drizzle with white chocolate fudge. Top with whipped cream, sprinkles & a cherry if desired!

White Chocolate Fudge Sauce

    3. Strain into a glass jar & refrigerate until ready to use. Sauce can be served both hot and cold!
