Green Tea Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Author: Julia
Ingredients
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk*
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder to taste see note*
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup see note**
Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until all the matcha chunks have dissolved (Note: If you have trouble getting the matcha to dissolve, you can heat the mixture on the stove top and whisk until combined. Be sure you refrigerate the mixture until completely cold before proceeding).
  2. Pour the green tea ice cream base into your ice cream maker, following your ice cream maker's instructions (my ice cream maker requires me to freeze the bowl overnight before use). Allow the ice cream to churn until very thick, about 30 to 40 minutes. Either enjoy the ice cream like soft serve straight out of the ice cream maker, or transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze 2 to 3 hours, until completely frozen.
  3. When ready to eat, thaw the ice cream for 10 to 15 minutes, or until softened. Serve heaping scoops and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

*If you're new to matcha and aren't used to the flavor, start with 1 tablespoon of matcha powder. If you like a deep matcha flavor, start with 2 tablespoons. Adjust the amount of matcha you use to taste.

 

**You can use any natural liquid sweetener you'd like, such as agave, honey, or coconut palm syrup.
