Ever had green tea ice cream before? Green tea (or matcha-flavored) ice cream is no longer limited to neighborhood sushi shops! Ever since matcha became hip, green tea ice cream has become a popular flavor featured at ice cream shops and is now even available in your grocer’s freezer. Unfortunately… most of these versions are jam-packed with sugar and artificial matcha flavoring. But it’s easy to make healthier green tea ice cream at home!
Never heard of matcha? Matcha is made from the ground up leaves of green tea, which means when you drink or eat it, you consume a lot of the goodness that would normally get tossed away. Here’s more on the benefits of matcha! (Psst – did you know it’s in Shakeology?)
