I called this green tea pudding without eggs because this pudding was not made with eggs and baked in a water bath. I used gelatin to harden it. I got the inspiration from Nasi Lemak Lover's Soymilk Pudding and a commercial I watched on youtube. That commercial featured vanilla pudding, coffee pudding and green tea pudding and it just caught my eyes. Since I have one last packet of powder gelatin to use and all other ingredients at home, I set to work. I revised the recipe using my Reduced Fat Panna Cotta that I made earlier. The difference was no heavy cream was used in this pudding.
If you loved green tea, you would love this. Just make sure you use a good quality green tea powder or matcha so that the color will come out green and the taste of green tea will be strong. It does makes a difference so don't buy a cheap green tea powder for baking or making dessert (I had learned my lesson). I recommend Redman's green tea powder for baking if you live in Malaysia.
This pudding is delicious and all of us loved it.
7g powder gelatin + 1/4 cup water
2 cups 2% milk
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. good quality matcha or green tea powder
1. Mix water and gelatin together, let it set.
2. In a medium saucepan, add in (A) and bring it to a boil and stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and add in 1. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
3. Sieve into prepared cups and let it cool at room temperature. It is normal to have some matcha that won't be completely dissolved and pass through the sieve and sink at the bottom of the cup.
4. Move to the refrigerator to let it set completely. About 2-3 hours. Bigger cups take longer time. Preferably overnight.
