Matcha Blackberry Semifreddo

IMG_0284

Friends, despite the repeated slathering of sunscreen, I’ve managed to get a little sun glow (not very red) and all I did today was walk around the lakes of Minneapolis craving a milkshake in the heat of the sun. Whilst those cravings weren’t fulfilled, there is another delicious frozen treat to crave.

Yes, somehow I have a newly awakened weakness for semifreddo, a dessert I used to make a few summers back as a way to enjoy a few quiet moments in the warm dusky air before the day ended. Let’s be frank, this has definitely been the year of matcha, and sure, I have indulged as badly as some other bloggers, but until you’ve tasted this green powder you won’t understand the spell it’ll put you under.

This recipe smooth frozen custard has a tartness thanks to the matcha and blackberries that pair better than you might imagine from first thought. My travels are taking me from the midwest back to the Big Apple and I’ll surely indulge once (or maybe twice, lets not say three times out loud) in a few Shake Shack milkshakes.

I thought I would bring you two frozen recipes this week and whilst they are both within radar of dessert, that doesn’t mean they can’t both be enjoyed whenever you want because lets face it. When its hot and your body needs something cold, you have to satisfy that craving.

How are you keeping cool from the heat?
