Creamy, green tea ice cream with a coconut-almond milk base and sweetened with honey and dates. Creamy, earthy, so delicious.
Author: Minimalist Baker
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dairy Free
Serves: 8

1 can quality full-fat coconut milk (splurge on the good stuff)
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2-3 Tbsp matcha green tea powder
1/4 cup pitted medjool dates
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup for vegan)
1/4 tsp xanthan gum

1. Place coconut milk, almond milk, matcha, dates and honey in a blender and blend until well combined.

2. Add xanthan gum and mix again.

3. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more green tea powder, dates or honey.

4. Transfer to a mixing bowl and let chill for at least a few hours. Then pour into a pre-chilled ice cream maker and operate according to manufacturer's instructions.

5. Once finished churning you can either eat it as soft serve or transfer it to a freezer-safe container and let harden for 4-6 hours.

6. Be sure to set out 20-30 minutes before serving to allow to soften.

7. If you don't have an ice cream maker, simply pour the "batter" into a freezer-safe container, cover, freeze, and stir/whisk every hour or so to aerate. Will keep in the freezer for a week or so. Best when consumed fresh. I'm sure it would be lovely with pomegranates, fruit compote or cacao nibs.
