Honestly? I didn’t think this would work. But I tried it anyway, and it is six kinds of awesome.
- 2 cups cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Two heaping tablespoons “green tea slurry” made from cheap green tea powder.
- About a cup of blackberries and blueberries, crushed by hand.
Whip for a bit in a blender before adding it to your ice cream maker (if, like me, you are a cheap bastard and have a cheap ice cream maker).
The odd thing about this recipe is the purple berry juice cancels out the green color of the tea slurry, and you end up with something that is sort of an unearthly glowing ultra-white. It has the bracing bitterness of green tea, mixed with the tartness of the berries. It’s great.
