Green Tea Sorbet

Green Tea Sorbet

Going “green” in my daily life also means trying to find some substitutions for indulgences. One of my favorite asian deserts is green tea ice cream. Now I know that ice cream is far from healthy so I figured I’d try my hand at sorbet for the first time. Without an ice cream machine, this may be a tedious process.

I found several sites with recipes, and choose this one.

  1. Bring water to boil, add leaves, and remove from heat. Steep for 4 minutes.Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
  2. Let cool on stove slightly, then chill tea, covered, until cold.
  3. Freeze in freezer-proof container, stirring every 30 minute to an hour until near frozen. At about 3 hours in, pull it from the freezer and move the contents to a food processor or using a stem mixer, blast the sorbet smooth. Place back in the freezer until frozen, for up to a week.
  4. Before serving, let it thaw slightly so it’s creamy again. Enjoy!
