Matcha Ginger Affogato
Warm, emerald green matcha kissed with ginger meets cool ice cream for a verdant take on the traditional affogato.
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 serving
- 2 teaspoons (about 3-4 g) matcha green tea powder
- ¾ teaspoon powdered ginger
- 6 tablespoons (90 ml) hot water (at 175ºF)
- ½ cup (120 ml) vanilla ice cream (regular or dairy-free)
The trick to good matcha is to keep if from clumping, so be sure to add just a touch of water at first, and blend to form a paste. If you have a bamboo matcha whisk, it makes silky-smooth, frothy matcha; otherwise, use a small metal whisk.
Be sure to source high-quality matcha that's bright green and fresh. Ippodo and Encha are two excellent brands.
