With the scorching heat of the summer sun upon us, nothing sounds quite as good as ice cream. But did you know you can make this cool treat with kratom? In this article, we’ll share a simple homemade green tea ice cream recipe to help you beat the heat this summer.
How to Make Green Tea Ice Cream with Kratom
Follow these easy steps to infuse kratom into your favorite green tea ice cream flavor:
- 3 tablespoons green tea powder
- 2 teaspoons kratom powder
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups all-purpose cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1: Ensure that the Sweetened Condensed Milk is Cold
The difference between fresh milk and sweetened condensed milk is water content. Sweetened condensed milk has the milk’s water content removed. Sugar is already added to it hence the term “sweetened condensed milk”. Chances of water crystal formation are less likely due to lesser water content. Sweetened condensed milk also has a milkier and thicker consistency. This helps keep the mixture consistently combined throughout.
Put it in the fridge to ensure that the sweetened condensed milk stays cold.
Step 2: Prepare Stand Mixer or Hand Blender
Use the attachment for a regular stand mixer or hand blender. If you don’t have any of these kitchen appliances, use a wired whisk to beat the ingredients by hand.
Step 3: Beat the All-Purpose Cream
Set the mixer on medium speed and beat the all-purpose cream. The difference between beating and mixing< is the amount of air in the mixture. When the air is whipped into the mix, it adds more volume.
Tip: If you are going to mix it by hand, tilt the bowl a little away from you. This gives you more space to move your hand.
Step 4: Add The Sweetened Condensed Milk
When the all-purpose cream becomes stiff, turn the mixer down to low speed. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk. This mixture becomes your ice cream base.
Step 5: Add the Green Tea Powder and Kratom
Check if the all-purpose cream and sweetened condensed milk blended well. If so, add the green tea powder and kratom. Increase the speed to medium to ensure that the powder is mixed. Wait until it turns green. Stop the mixer to check if the texture is smooth.
Tip: If you want your green tea ice cream to taste sweeter, add vanilla extract. This results in a taste closer to Nata de Coco.
Step 6: Transfer to Airtight Containers
Transfer the ice cream mixture to airtight containers. Flat and lightweight containers are recommended. Make sure to check that the containers are freezer-safe. Another way to avoid crystal formation is to place a thin plastic layer over the ice cream.
Step 7: Freeze the Ice Cream Overnight
Place the containers at the back of the freezer. This ensures the coldest temperature to harden your ice cream.
Tip: Avoid placing the container on the freezer door. The temperature in this area is inconsistent which may result in your ice cream having a grainy texture.
