Paleo Green Tea (Matcha) Ice Cream
Paleo desserts are simply awesome! How can sweet treats be so tasty and healthy, too? This is the story of my very own super fantastic Paleo dessert recipe creation, Matchanana!
Let’s jump right into it!
Before I went full Paleo I used to love the green tea latte from Starbucks. The flavor of the latte was a little bit sweet, definitely complex and simply awesome.
I decided that I needed to know what the unfamiliar ingredient in the latte was; so I set out on a journey to find out.
I really just went over to Starbucks and asked what was in it; but setting out on a journey sounds much more epic.
Now back to it…
When I asked the barista what was in the drink; I identified matcha (from the list of things the guy told me) as the thing that I was looking for and wanted to know more about it.
Matcha, Matcha, Matcha, Oh how I love thee…
During my research, I found out how wonderful matcha really is.
It has made my list superhero ingredients (along with grass-fed gelatin). My superhero ingredients are those ingredients that have so many health benefits that it’s unbelievable.
I must say that I was thoroughly impressed by the benefits of matcha.
My excitement caused me to run directly to my computer and order a bag of organic matcha powder.
I must say, once my matcha arrived I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. You see, I hadn’t thought far enough ahead to figure out what recipes I wanted to prepare.
The matcha powder sat on the counter for a week while I pondered what to do with it.
So the first thing that came to mind was that green tea latte that I loved so much.
However, since my Paleo conversion and the elimination of dairy meant no latte for me.
Then I reconsidered and made a Paleo version of the green tea latte by eliminating the sweet syrup that Starbucks adds and replacing the dairy milk with a smooth coconut milk.
FYI – raw honey is my sweetener of choice so some days I’ll add it to my Paleo green tea latte as a treat.
- Peel Bananas and cut into thick slices
- Place in ziploc bag and freeze overnight
- Put all ingredients into food processor Note: Bananas will break into pieces almost like shattered glass when you start to pulse; continue to mix until you have a soft/creamy texture.
- Pulse until ingredients are well blended and the texture is smooth
- Garnish with chopped nuts or coconut flakes
- Serve immediately - To achieve a firmer texture, place ice cream in freezer for 3 to 4 hours prior to serving
It was wonderful all over again; let me know what tweaks you make and how it turns out.
