T.G.I.F!

The weekend is almost here and we’re looking forward to some time off enjoying the best things in life.

To help you celebrate the end of the week, we’ve got an awesome matcha that’s loved all over the world - Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream!

Matcha ice cream is a huge foodie trend right now because it combines the delicious favour and health benefits of matcha in a dish everyone loves.

Our Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream recipe from Cherie Tu is vegan, raw, dairy free and sugar free so it’s it much healthier than regular ice cream. The main ingredients are only bananas and matcha powder. But remember, balance is the key to a healthy lifestyle – so enjoy this delicious treat in moderation.

Cherie Tu is a super talented recipe developer with a HUGE dedication to vegan food and a wholesome lifestyle. She loves to create, documents and share her wonderful vegan recipes, which you can check out:

You can top this green tea banana ice cream with your favourite fruits, sauces, or nuts. Cherie topped hers with buckinis and her own carob sauce. Carob is substitute ingredient for cacao powder.

Both cacao and carob are low in calories but cacao has a more chocolaty taste than carob. Carob however does not have caffeine, which makes it a great alternative for anyone with high blood pressure.

Buckini is activated buckwheat, where the seed is soaked evenly in water. It has various health benefits, such as reducing risk of high cholesterol and blood pressure, regulating blood sugar, and maintaining healthy weight.

Now, lets make some ice cream – matcha style
