ICE CREAM TIME !!! We know is really HOT out here and you need a refreshing without worry about calories ! No worries we got you !
There is a healthy gluten free and vegan recipe of ice cream.
Let’s talk about the ingredients first. You already know a lot about matcha from one of our post, but let’s say it again.
Green tea powder (matcha) consists of stone-ground green tea leaves, which are high in antioxidants, boost the metabolism, lift your mood, are full of amino acids, and increase your energy. Matcha green tea powderretains all of the health benefits of green tea leaves and is also far more potent than steeping the leaves into tea.
1 gram of matcha green tea powder contains 20 times the antioxidants of 1 gram of blueberries and is also the equivalent of drinking 10 mugs of green tea. Matcha has Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fiber, and L-theanine (which is said to help retain memory).

2 14.5-ounce cans full-fat coconut milk*
1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
½ cup pure marple syrup see ( can be replaced by agave )
3 tablespoons coconut oil
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).
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.
When ready to eat, thaw the ice cream for 10 to 15 minutes, or until softened.
