Serves 4:

  • 250ml milk
  • 80g sugar
  • 50g Amaretto biscuit
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 tablespoon Matcha green tea
  • Break Amaretto biscuit into small pieces.


  1. In a saucepan on medium heat, add 250ml milk, yolk and sugar, stir till sugar is dissolved. Then add Amaretto biscuit and vanilla extract.Mix the cornstarch and 2 tablespoon milk to create a thick paste. While keep stirring the saucepan, add cornstarch in slowly to ensure no lumps are formed. Keep stirred till with a spoon till the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir a little more, then put a cloth on top of the saucepan, then lid, then place into the freezer to chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Then put the chilled mixture into the ice cream to finish, say about 15 minutes.
  4. To prepare the honey “sauce”, place water, honey and orange juice in another saucepan, on a low heat, stir then mixed. Remove from heat to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Then in a small bowl or mug, place matcha, then 1/3 of the honey mixture, mix till matcha is dissolved, then add the remaining honey mixture. Stir to mix.
  6. To assemble the dessert, simply put 1-2 tablespoon of matcha honey on a shallow dish or a bowl, then place a scoop of the Amaretto ice cream on top. Ready to enjoy!
  7. This dessert is quite sweet, so we suggest Organic Snowview Darjeeling to cut through the sugar.
