No-Churn Matcha Ice-Cream

This matcha ice-cream, better eaten as scoops than as popsicles, is sweet. Really sweet. Do go easy on the condensed milk if you’re fearful of sugar. I very much prefer the version with milk and egg that the guy did before in pre-Covid times – it’s lighter, purer in matcha taste and easier on the stomach.

I was blessed with a not-so-kind-but-good-enough and extremely hot weather which allowed me enough time to cycle from East Coast to Changi Village through the Changi Bay Point, passing through the Jurassic Miles on the way. I also had a once in a lifetime Omakase at the Torio Restaurant hidden in the Links Hotel. Even though my visit to the Somerset Design Library was cut short by some unforeseen emergencies (which turned out not to be an emergency), I could have another afternoon browsing through some books at Kino on Wednesday afternoon. It was a good break from work. How I wish…
