Green Tea Ice Cream

I love having an ice cream maker!  There are so many flavors of ice cream that I want to conquer.  The first one I decided to make for ice cream season is green tea.  I found this recipe in Shape magazine and I love it because it is decently low in calories (only 106 calories per serving).  The texture is not your typical uber creamy ice cream because in this recipe almond milk and coconut milk are used.  I’m sure if you wanted to you can use heavy cream but that would of course add heavy calories.  I don’t mind the texture.  I love the green tea flavor and it satisfies my ice cream craving.

Green Tea Ice Cream

shape magazine

Ingredients:

14 oz coconut milk
2 teaspoons matcha green tea
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons agave nectar

chopped dark chocolate, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Combine the coconut milk, matcha, almond milk, and sugar in a blender until smooth. Place mixture into the freezer for about 30 minutes to chill.

Add the mixture to an electric ice cream maker and churn until thick, about 15 to 20 minutes. Using a spatula, remove ice cream from maker and place in an airtight container. Put the ice cream back into the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or until it reaches the desired consistency. For a harder ice cream, freeze for at least 2 hours. The final product will last up to a month in the freezer.
