  • mechanical ice shaver


Matcha ice:

  • ¾ C water cooled to 80°C/176°F
  • 1-2 teaspoon matcha powder to your taste


  • dango (chewy glutinous rice dumplings)
  • red adzuki beans
  • condensed milk to your taste


Make the matcha ice block:

  • Add matcha powder to a glass/jar/bowl.
  • Pour the cooled boiled water over the matcha.
  • Whisk the matcha until frothed.
  • Let it cool.
  • Transfer the cooled matcha to a freezer-safe container or ice molds (I used the molds that the ice shaver came with) and freeze until solid.

Shave the ice:

  • Remove the frozen matcha block and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.
  • Place the matcha ice block into the ice shaver.
  • Shave the matcha ice into a chilled bowl, according to the ice shaver manufacturer's directions.
  • Serve immediately with your choice of toppings and condensed milk.
