Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe

Nutrient rich  matcha green tea vegan 'ice cream' with banana, coconut and avocado

So inspiration for tonight's experiments in the kitchen came from two experiences today.

One: I tried an awesome matcha and avocado smoothie at the groovy Smith street tea bar Storminateacup

The other from when I was browsing Daiso and came across some ice cream molds. If you don't know what Daiso is, it's basically the Japanese $2 shop, but everything is $2.80 and they have a lot of different stuff, from homewares, stationary, kitchen stuff and a bunch of other crap. Typically everything you buy breaks the second you get it home but it's only $2.80 so who cares right? So I grabbed my plastic mold in order to make some matcha green tea ice cream later and was on my merry way.

Now I've never actually made green tea ice cream before, so wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't have a recipe and to be honest these turned out a bit 'icy-er' than as creamy as I had hoped. But they were still delicious, and went perfectly as an after dinner sweet. The avocado, banana and coconut all worked well together and paired well with the green tea flavour. These green tea ice cream treats are vegan(I love the vegans no matter what anyone says about them), raw, full of healthy fats from the coconut and avocado and packed with antioxidants from the matcha and fruit. 

Ingredients for green tea ice cream

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 an avocado
  • Juice from one coconut and about 50g of shaved fresh coconut
  • 1 large banana
  • 20g ofcooking grade matcha powder (yes I used a lot.)
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • A handful of ice cubes
  • Squeeze of lemon

Method: 

There isn't one, I just threw it all in the blender then poured it into the ice cream moulds.

Making Matcha Green Tea Ice Creams

After this step I put them in the freezer, but sadly no photo was taken. Here is a few once they came out of the freezer:

(ps. These photos are all from my phone, if you want to see better quality photos in the future buy some matcha tea and I could afford a better camera)

No the photo isn't staged, I always eat ice cream like that.

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.
