As an avid tea drinker I love matcha and how easy it is to use in recipes aside from the traditional use. I personally prefer drinking matcha the traditional way ,but smoothies are a close second. But when I got my hands on a bottle of ceremonial grade matcha, I wanted to switch things up and make a batch of No-Churn Matcha Ice cream.
I’ve been on an all things coconut trend lately so I decided to make the ice cream with coconut milk. My sweetener of choice was condensed milk but this can easily be swapped for a vegan sweetener of your choice. If you’re a tea lover like myself, 3 tablespoons is the perfect amount of Matcha. If you’re not start off with 1 tablespoon and add gradually to your liking. I topped my ice cream with crushed pistachios but the possibilities are endless.
