Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt

Beat the heat this summer with cool, refreshing and flavorful Matcha green tea frozen yogurt. I had previously shared Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream which is a real big hit in my family. Matcha green tea comes in powder form available in Japanese stores. The green tea powder gives a great taste to ice cream, smoothie, cake or so on. This recipe is made using hung yogurt, Matcha green tea and flavored with ginger, lemon grass and cardamom powder. This combination give a unique flavor to the recipe. I have used homemade yogurt but you can also use Greek yogurt for this recipe. I have used ice cream maker to make frozen yogurt but this can be done without ice cream maker. Lemon grass is a Asian herb which is used in Ayurvedic medicine and it has many health benefits. Lemon grass can also be used in other recipes like tea, curry, soup or so on.Lemon Grass_2
