Matcha Green Tea Pudding with Sweet Red Bean Paste

It's so cold here. We had snowstorm this week and I was snowed in on Monday and today. We had 5" of snow in our area. Did I like it? Definitly hahaha but it wasn't convenient to access work database which kinda annoyed me. Well, can't say much. You can't get it all. 

Fun trivale: Other than the observance of Martin Luther King Day's on Monday, do you know January 16th is also an International Hot & Spicy Food Day?! Yep. You heard me.

It's so beautiful in Winter. I love it. I must say this past weekend was productive for me. I got all emails done, made some food, yoga, meditation, dinner with friends, and got to make this matcha pudding. It's really easy to make and tastes so good. Green tea and sweet red bean paste (Azuki) are a good combination in any dessert, and so is this pudding. Soy milk is a great altenative to skim or whole milk. You can use any kind of milk you have on hands. I first made it in a dessert martini-like glass but we like it better when serving with a shot glass. It's adorable and you won't feel you intake too much dessert.

Shot glass is also great for party. With easy directions and a few ingredients, I definitely add this to my party food list next time! Please feel free to bump up measurements.

I like to share another easy appetizer for a party - pear and goat cheese mini cups - which I made for New Year's Eve party. It's a little time consuming with making cups but I guarantee this will add a wow factor to your party. I brushed gyoza wrappers with melted butter. The original post with ingredients is here.

Matcha Green Tea Pudding
Yield" 1.5 cup

1 envelope unflavored gelatin package
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup soy milk

Sweet red bean paste (Azuki)

Shot glasses

  • Boil water. Then mix in gelatin powder. Mix well and set aside.
  • Heat up milks (heavy cream and soy milk). Add matcha powder. Whisk well.
  • Use a strainer to strain crumbed or excessed matcha powder.
  • While the milks are still hot, gradually add sugar. Whisk well.
  • Strain milk mixture again.
  • Pour gelatin mixture into milk mixture. Whisk well.
  • Add about 1 tsp red bean paste into bottom of glasses.
  • Pour green tea mixture into a glass.

is it too late to ask for a couple of buckets of snow. We only got a couple of flakes, wish we had enough to make a snowman.
I really should pay a visit to the Asian store and look for that red bean paste. I keep reading about it.

This dessert looks just wonderful, I am a BIG fan of anything matcha. Bookmarked to make. And the pear and goat cheese mini cups look great too.

Magic of Spice said...

These are both very tempting, and I really want to try this pudding :) I have allot of azuki still and want to try a sweet at some point :)

Gina said...

I finally got a bag of matcha, I have to try something with it soon. Love those little glasses. I was thinking macarons, but now maybe I think this pudding. Hope all has been well with you my dear. Just love the new hairstyle.
