Mr. Green Tea - Green Tea Ice Cream

I could not resist picking up a pint of this green tea ice cream when I spotted it at my local Shop Rite. The color was a really rich, dark green. My family thought it looked rather gross. This is a good thing in my book because that means that they won't eat it on me. The flavor was refreshingly vegetal and sweet. I was happy that it was not very sugary. While the taste was very enjoyable, I thought that it had a gritty texture. It was a bit odd but not enough to make me stop eating my entire bowl. Green tea milk shakes made with this will be coming my way in the near future. I really appreciate that this ice cream emphasizes natural ingredients. In looking at their website, I saw that Mr. Green Tea also makes a mochi ice cream version. It sounds delicious and I'll definitely need to track down some soon.

Ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, skim milk, green tea, locust bean gum, guar gum, carrageenan
