Incorporate your favorite powdered tea even more into your life by creating this matcha sundae recipe!
I recently moseyed on over to WCIU You & Me This Morning to share 4 easy recipes + remedies using one of my favorite green powdery ingredients, Matcha! My favorite item that I spoke about was a matcha sundae recipe that can be made with only 3 ingredients (not including the toppings and such).
I shared a simple Banana ice cream recipe that I still make to this day when I’m craving something sweet. When I first started to figure out how to cut back on dairy I was often times bummed out that I couldn’t enjoy one of my favorite sweets: ice cream. Ever since I learned how to make dairy-free (vegan) ice cream it’s made my journey to being virtually dairy-free a breeze!
Making dairy-free ice cream is actually a lot easier than you think. Some bloggers create vegan ice cream recipes with all these added ingredients (that are healthy, nonetheless) and it can make those who are taking small steps to eating healthy intimidated. If you want to get to the basics all you need to do is freeze 1 or 2 bananas, blend them together with a nut milk (I prefer almond milk), and voila. Banana flavored ice cream.
If you want to create dairy-free ice cream sans bananas, you can always use a blend of full fat coconut milk and almond milk instead (vanilla ice-cream sundae recipe to come in the future). I know not all of us are fans of bananas, but for those that are this is a bomb.com way to eat fruit as a dessert.
So on to matcha. I recently broke down all the nutritional benefits of matcha, so now it’s time to incorporate it into my own recipes. I made this matcha sundae recipe because who doesn’t want to enjoy a healthy dessert mid-day that will give you a non-jittery dose of energy?
All you really need to do is throw your frozen bananas, almond milk, and matcha in a blender and blend until it creates an ice cream texture. Then you can be creative with your toppings. I topped my matcha sundae recipe with melted cacao nibs (oh by the way did you know cacao is used as a new trending party drug?!), coconut chips and berries. It literally takes not even 10 minutes to make and I promise you your sweet cravings will be satisfied.
Matcha Sundae Recipe: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Tropical as Sh*t
