Matcha molasses mint ice cream

The Monk is in the midst of molasses mania, and matcha goes good on anything, so it seemed only natural to try both on my favorite flavor of ice cream — mint chocolate chip.

The result was a symphonic explosion of flavor: The earthy, slightly bitter taste of the matcha and the sweet, burnt taste of the molasses complemented each other and the minty chocolate taste of the ice cream perfectly.

Matcha also goes well by itself on plain vanilla ice cream, as a kind of easy-to-make homemade matcha ice cream. But then, matcha goes great on just about anything.
