Watch a short video of how to make tasty Matcha A La Mode in less than 2 minutes.
A La Mode is French word meaning “in fashion” and describes a sweet dish with ice cream.
Matcha A La Mode is basically matcha with ice cream.
To make Matcha A La Mode, mix 1 tablespoon of matcha with ¼ cup of hot water with a temperature of 175 degrees f (or 80 degree c) and whisk them until they form little bubbles.
Here, I am using a Milk Frother. It takes about 30 seconds. When you are whisking manually using a metal or bamboo whisk, you want to whisk for about one minute.
You can pour the whisked mixture over one scoop, two scoops or three scoops or more of vanilla ice-cream. I am using Häagen-Dazs ice-cream which is my personal favorite. Their vanilla flavor goes very well with the bitterness of matcha without covering much of the matcha aroma.
Make sure to serve quickly after you pour the matcha because the hot matcha melts the ice-cream quickly. The melting ice-cream is part of the sensation you want to enjoy with this dish.
