Keto Matcha Ice Cream


Prep Time

20 minutes plus overnight freezing

Prep Notes

Did you know that in Japanese "cha" means green tea, and "ma" means powder, thus matcha translates literally as "powdered green tea".

Preparation and consumption of matcha entered mainstream culture through the Zen Buddhists, who were very aware of its meditational benefits, which brought them a greater sense of clarity and well-being. I've recommended Four Sigmatic Mushroom Matcha tea for this reason, but you can use regular organic matcha powder too.

Note: This recipe has modifications for vegan, paleo dairy free and a standard keto version. Try one or both!
