Vegan Ice Cream homemade recipe with Matcha Green Tea, Coconut Milk, vegan, dairy free

We’ve never met someone who doesn’t love a good ice cream. And today, we are going to satisfy those ice cream cravings with this Vegan Homemade Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe by Katey Power, aka @littlebitbakery.

We all get sweet cravings sometimes. But stuffing our faces with sugar laden foods makes us feel unwell and leaves us with a guilty feeling at the pit of our stomachs.

That’s why this recipe is great – it satisfies those sweet cravings but leaves you feeling healthy. No guilt involved! The ice cream is vegan and dairy free and is often healthier than shop bought ice cream with similar flavours.

The matcha in the ice cream gives a clean taste that cuts through the rich flavour of the coconut milk. The flavour combinations create an ice cream that is smooth, dark green and extremely delicious.

Vegan Green Tea Homemade Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 x 400ml can of coconut milk (higher % of coconut and less water, e.g. Woolworths Select as it gives better texture & taste)
  • 2 tsp Kenko Cooking Grade Matcha
  • ½ cup sugar (I used a mixture of coconut sugar and castor)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence / extract
  • 1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pinch of salt

Method

  1. Freeze the ice cream maker’s bowl for 24h before use (I usedCuisinart Ice Cream Maker)
  2. Whisk all ingredients together in a small pot
  3. Heat slightly to melt the sugar until it’s no longer grainy
  4. Assemble the frozen bowl into ice cream maker
  5. Turn it on and pour the mixture into the ice cream churner
  6. Let it mix and churn until reaching the consistency of soft served ice cream
  7. Transfer to a plastic container (NOT steel!)
  8. Leave to freeze up (about 1.5 hours depending on the freezer)
  9. Optional: Pull the ice cream out of the freezer and mix during the final freezing process for a smoother texture if you have time
  10. Leave it out for about 15 minutes to soften before serving*
  11. Scoop into a bowl, topped with your choice of fruits or nuts, and serve~

*Note: Commercial ice cream is made with a considerable amount of air, and the weight of coconut milk will make the ice cream more dense and icy. Make sure you leave it out to soften before scooping!

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.

Wow!

Delicious. Love this matcha 🍵, excellent quality and the service is second to none. 10/10
