Your healthy ice cream dreams have come true! This creamy coconut matcha ice cream is gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and packed with superfood nutrients. A delicious dessert recipe you can whip up in a flash; no freezing or ice cream maker required!
You know what makes me happy? Fun, colorful, healthy foods! There are many reasons why I named this blog with the word “sunshine”, but one of those reasons is for all the happy color-inducing thoughts it brings. Maybe it is just a subconscious goal of mine to get as many colors into my diet each and every day. I’m pretty sure I knock them all out of the park without any struggle, especially GREEN!
I like to tell people I may just be the first to overdose on greens (but that’s okay!). I proudly do crave veggies (I also crave nut butter and sweet cereal, but you know how it is!) But hold up now! Don’t think the only way you can add green to you diet is from veggies! You may want to delve into some Matcha (green tea powder) and Spirulina (blue-green algae)! Two fantastic “superfoods” that load in the antioxidants just like veggies and fruit! However, this little powers are much better when we add them to something like…ICE CREAM!
Are you shocked even more? Yes, I said ICE CREAM! My first ice cream recipe to boot! To make it even more special and “super” I made this ice cream not with plain old coconut milk, but Silk® Nutchello™ Toasted Coconut and Cashew Beverage (2 of my favorite foods)! It’s cocoNUTTY, creamy, deliciousness! I always say cashews are like candy to me, with their natural sweetness. Add coconut as well and you have one decadent dairy-free milk for the ultimate ice cream creation! It gets better! The other base is bananas so you don’t need an ice cream maker nor any freezer time. You can dive right into this dairy-free vegan decadence!
Since I know not everyone has my taste preferences, I am hoping that this green goodness will make everyone happy. How could anyone pass up this sweet, healthy, summer-ready treat? You could eat this for breakfast, dessert, even perhaps a midday boost? Can we get a “heck yea!” for the coconut and cashew too? Those are also some of my happiest foods. They’re not all that colorful on their own , but that doesn’t stop us from giving them extra side kicks to boost the color-power!
Are you ready for a bowl? I have a feeling you are. I can see it in your face (yes, I can see!) That green nutty-coconutty matcha and spirulina is calling you! It was calling me, so good thing I had this entire batch to myself 😉
Coconut Matcha Ice Cream
The coconut, banana, and matcha mask any “spirulina” flavor, so don’t worry about that! Just worry about freezing enough bananas to make multiple batches of this coconut matcha ice cream! Simple, delicious, happy moments of pure bliss and smiles. One of those “close you eyes with each spoonful” kind of treats! Now go get blending!
