Sometimes ice cream for breakfast is just what the doctor ordered. This Morning Matcha Ice Cream is packed with antioxidants and protein, which helps me get through many rough mornings with a smile on my face.
I love having an ice cream maker, not that I need loads of ice cream in my diet, but having control of what’s in my ice cream has been a great experience. Have you taken a look at the ingredients in store bought stuff? It’s a bit disturbing. There are several machines on the market, but I went with the Cuisinart automatic machine, I didn’t want to deal with ice and rock salt. With the Cuisinart you simply freeze the bowl, connect it to the machine, add the ingredients and let it mix for 10-15 minutes.
Now, lets talk Matcha! Matcha (“ground tea”) is a Japanese tea made from powdered green tea leaves. Matcha powder is said to have 3x the antioxidants as the usual steeped green tea bag. My favorite is Kiss Me Organics Matcha Powder. The price looks a bit steep, but it’s a great quality product and it has lasted me a very long time. A little Matcha goes a long way!
Because I love my fellow matcha lovers, here’s a discount code for the best olive oil that can be used in this recipe.
