Vegan Matcha Green Tea infused Ice-cream

Vegan Matcha Green Tea infused Ice-cream


Hello everybody, hope that you are all doing well. so today I am going to show you a fantastic vegan ice-cream recipe which is green tea flavored. And the great thing is that you do not have to be vegan to enjoy this wonderful ice-cream. It has a very creamy texture to it that you will not find in regular store bought ice-cream from the supermarket and also you will know what you put into it!



So now that I have shown a picture of this great ice-cream lets learn how to make it!


Firstly you will need the following ingredients:

INGREDIENTS
1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
⅔ cups sugar
2 cans (13.5 oz each) full fat coconut milk
2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
3-5 grated almonds (optional)
3 tsp of Matcha original powder - click here to get the powder that I used -> Matcha Original Powder


Method:

1. Chill 2 cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight

2. Empty the contents of other 1 cans of coconut milk into a saucepan and heat for around 5 minutes whilst stirring. Add the sugar and bring to a simmer, stir once and gently simmer for 30 minutes, or until the milk is thick and has reduced by half (After about 10-15 minutes, you'll notice that the milk will start to turn a golden colour – that's ok and is exactly what's supposed to happen). Remove from heat and let cool completely.


3. Open the 2 cans of chilled coconut milk. The cream should have risen to the top. Carefully scoop the cream into a mixing bowl. (Reserve the water below to use in a smoothie or just drink it as it is)

4.With an electric beater, whip up the coconut cream on high speed until it's light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.

5. Add the cooled condensed coconut milk and whip on high speed for another 2-3 minutes.

6. Add the two tsp of vanilla extract as it will stop the ice-cream from crystalising and will give you a smoother and creamier texture.

7. Add the Matcha Original green tea powder and stir gently till all of the powder is well mixed in without any clotting. Here are some examples of what it should look like!


8. Transfer to a lidded container and sprinkle some grated almonds to give an added crunch to the ice-cream; however this is optional.

9. Then freeze for 4 hours or overnight. This ice cream does freeze harder than my other so just give it a few minutes at room temperature to make it easier to scoop.

10. One left for 4 hours or overnight scoop up and enjoy this healthy energy boosting treat! :)
