Quantity Ingredients

                  500 ml/ 17 fl oz carton      good quality vanilla ice cream

                  15 ml/ 1 tbsp              matcha

                  15 ml/ 1 tbsp              lukewarm water from the kettle

                  Seeds from ¼ pomegranate (optional)




1) Soften the ice cream by transferring it to the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Do not allow it to melt.

2) Mix the matcha powder and lukewarm water in a cup and stir well to make a smooth paste.

3) Put half the ice cream into a mixing bowl. Add the match liquid and mix thoroughly with a rubber spatula, then add the rest of the ice cream. You can stop mixing at the stage when the ice cream looks a marbled dark green and white, or continue to mix until the ice cream is a uniform pale green. Put the bowl into the freezer.

4) After 1 hour, the ice cream is ready to serve. Scoop into individual glass cups, and top with a few pomegranate seeds to decorate.
