Matcha ice cream recipe can be very low in carbs. Just use a sugar substitute for a keto ice cream recipe. Not to mention the beautiful color of this green tea ice cream. That’s why I love this vegan keto matcha ice cream.
Matcha is really tasty I’ve always liked it. It’s really tasty in creamy recipes. That’s why I decided to make some creamy Keto IceCream with it! Matcha flavored ice cream is a really delicious flavor.
So what is matcha? Matcha is a powder made of finely ground green tea leaves. additionally It’s packed with antioxidants too. It’s perfect for this keto ice cream recipe.
This easy Keto ice cream only requires 4 ingredients! You simple need coconut cream, matcha, vanilla extract, and a Keto sweetener. I used stevia for this green tea ice cream recipe.
Start by storing the cans of coconut milk the night Before. This is important for getting the cream to separate. You only want to use the cream to make this vegan ice cream.
If you are using an ice cream maker, freeze your ice cream pan over night as well. This makes for the best ice cream. See recipe for the remaining Keto ice cream directions!
Ice cream makers are fairly inexpensive however you don’t have to have one to make ice cream. But it’s a lot more time consuming to make it by hand. Either way I’ve included instructions for both ways!
Lastly Stevia is a great sugar substitute. It’s not a fake sugar substitute like Splenda. The body does not metabolize the glycosides in stevia. However you can use whatever sweetener you prefer as there are many types.
Other Keto sweeteners include monk fruit, Splenda, and sucralose. Either way this green tea ice cream recipe is vegan, Keto, paleo, and gluten free!
If you do not have an ice cream maker just scroll to the end of recipe. I’ve included instructions to make this ice cream with a hand held mixer. You will also need an ice cream freezer pan for this matcha ice cream recipe.
