  • Heat milk in a medium sized saucepan until it reaches boiling point.
  • Whisk egg yolks and caster sugar together in a medium sized bowl until light and creamy.
  • Remove hot milk from heat and pour over the egg mixture, stirring constantly.
  • Return milk to the pan and stir constantly until the mixture forms a film on the back of a wooden spoon. A finger dragged across the back of the spoon will leave a trail.
  • Add the green tea powder and seaweed to the warm milk mixture, stirring until well incorporated.
  • Cool in the refrigerator for several hours.
  • Stir double cream and lemon juice into the green tea milk mixture and churn in an ice cream maker.
  • Transfer to a freezer proof container to harden for a few more hours in the freezer. Allow to soften slightly before serving.
