Green Tea and Japanese Cherry Yogurt

Hoje para Jantar

This recipe calls for an unusual method for brewing the tea: First you heat up some milk (skim is called for here, but you can use whichever type you like) and then add the tea leaves and bring just to a boil before letting them steep, off the heat. Once you strain out the leaves, the tea mixture is cooled and combined with plain yogurt and sugar and put into a yogurt maker.


  • 800 milliliters skim milk
  • 3 teaspoons green tea (Japanese cherry)
  • 1 tablespoon powdered milk
  • 1 natural yogurt
  • 80 grams sugar


  1. Pour the milk in a pan and warm it up.
  2. Add the tea and turn off as soon as it starts boiling.
  3. Steep for about 10 minutes.
  4. Strain the tea leaves and let it cool to 50 degrees Celsius, or until you can put your finger in it without getting burned.
  5. Add the powdered milk, yogurt, and sugar and beat with a whisk or an electric mixer.
  6. Pour liquid into the glasses and place in the yogurt maker for 10 hours.
