Creamy Matcha Pudding

Creamy Matcha Pudding

This was a bigger hit than I anticipated, so I've made it several times.

Ingredients: 5 cups

Matcha
1 tablespoon
Milk
200 ml
Heavy cream
200 ml
Sugar
50 g
Gelatin powder
5 g
Hot water (for the gelatin)
50 ml
Tsubu-an, whipped cream (for the topping)
To taste

Steps

1. I use an empty heavy cream carton to measure the milk, which is handy! Remember the level of the cream in the carton.
2. Put the cream, milk, and sugar in a pan. Mix well over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat.
3. Sift in the matcha using a tea strainer.
4. Add 50 ml of hot water to the empty cream carton. Add the gelatin powder and dissolve. Add to the pan and mix in.
5. Strain the mixture from Step 4 into a bowl. Cool down the bowl over ice water.
6. When the mixture has thickened slightly, pour into individual cups, and let them set in the refrigerator.
7. Serve with toppings of your choice.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this for my son who loves matcha lattes. Even if you use a lot of matcha tea powder, because of the cream in this pudding it's not bitter at all!
