Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a rich texture matcha milk pudding that can be made by simply mixing and chilling.
The amount of gelatin is kept to a minimum so it has a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The instruction is very simple and easy to try, even for those who are not good at making sweets. I hope you will give it a try!!
Before I talk about how to make it, let’s start with some notes and points.
Can I make it with something other than milk and fresh cream?
Of course, but you need to aware that it won’t be rich and creamy texture. You can have oats milk or soy milk substituted.
Can I use matcha powder for matcha latte?
Matcha for lattes can be used as long as it does not contain any sugar. If you only have matcha powder with sugar, reduce the amount of sugar slightly from the recipe.
Is the grade of matcha important for matcha milk pudding?
If you can get a culinary grade one, that would be great, but if not, you can use the drinkable one.
