I love this recipe so matcha! The almost-vegan matcha green tea coconut ice cream is SO good and not just in taste; it’s dairy free and doesn’t contain refined sugar, making it pretty darn clean.
The rich and creamy base comes from coconut milk and coconut cream, while the sweetness comes from the dates, honey and vanilla almond milk. And then, of course, the bold flavor comes from the matcha which is packed with antioxidants and has its own slew of health benefits.
This is basically one of the healthiest—but more importantly, tastiest—ice creams I’ve ever eaten. Here’s how to make it:
Recipe: Matcha Green Tea & Coconut Ice Cream
1 can organic full-fat coconut milk
1 can organic coconut cream (I like this brand)
1 cup organic vanilla almond milk
2-3 Tbsp organic matcha green tea powder (I like this brand)
3-4 organic pitted medjool dates
1/4 cup honey
1. Combine coconut milk, coconut cream, almond milk, matcha, dates and honey in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour into a mixing bowl and chill in the fridge for at least three hours.
3. Once chilled, pour into a pre-chilled ice cream maker and churn until thick.
