Matcha is all the craze at the moment. Not only are people taking it the traditional way in liquid hot drink form but you will also see matcha pancakes, matcha sprinkled on savoury foods if there’s a food someone has ‘matcha-ised’ it. The team behind MT-REAL have whipped up a healthy matcha icecream (it is loaded with health benefits lets not forget) and wait for it a healthy ‘ice-magic’ that chocolate sauce when you’re a kid that sets rock hard.
MATCHA VANILLA NANA ICE CREAM by MT-REAL
For the ice cream
- 3 frozen bananas
- Generous handful of frozen spinach
- 1 tsp matcha (we love Matcha Maiden)
- Seeds from 1 vanilla pod, or 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
For the hard shell raw cacao sauce:
- 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- Chopped nut or coconut sprinkles to top
First, prep the chocolate sauce by mixing the melted coconut oil, cacao powder and maple syrup. Leave ready to pour all over the ice cream.
Blend the frozen bananas, spinach, matcha and vanilla until thoroughly blended into a smooth soft scoop ice cream.
Serve straight away, pouring the raw chocolate sauce over the ice cream and watch the magic happen as it hardens on the surface. Top with chopped nuts, coconut, or whatever healthy you fancy.
