Vegan Ice Cream homemade recipe with Matcha Green Tea, Coconut Milk, vegan, dairy free

We’ve never met someone who doesn’t love a good ice cream. And today, we are going to satisfy those ice cream cravings with this Vegan Homemade Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe by Katey Power, aka @littlebitbakery.

We all get sweet cravings sometimes. But stuffing our faces with sugar laden foods makes us feel unwell and leaves us with a guilty feeling at the pit of our stomachs.

That’s why this recipe is great – it satisfies those sweet cravings but leaves you feeling healthy. No guilt involved! The ice cream is vegan and dairy free and is often healthier than shop bought ice cream with similar flavors.

The matcha in the ice cream gives a clean taste that cuts through the rich flavor of the coconut milk. The flavor combinations create an ice cream that is smooth, dark green and extremely delicious.

Vegan Green Tea Homemade Ice Cream


  • 1 x 400ml can of coconut milk (higher % of coconut and less water, e.g. Woolworths Select as it gives better texture & taste)
  • 2 tsp Kenko Cooking Grade Matcha
  • ½ cup sugar (I used a mixture of coconut sugar and castor)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence / extract
  • 1 squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. Freeze the ice cream maker’s bowl for 24h before use (I usedCuisinart Ice Cream Maker)
  2. Whisk all ingredients together in a small pot
  3. Heat slightly to melt the sugar until it’s no longer grainy
  4. Assemble the frozen bowl into ice cream maker
  5. Turn it on and pour the mixture into the ice cream churner
  6. Let it mix and churn until reaching the consistency of soft served ice cream
  7. Transfer to a plastic container (NOT steel!)
  8. Leave to freeze up (about 1.5 hours depending on the freezer)
  9. Optional: Pull the ice cream out of the freezer and mix during the final freezing process for a smoother texture if you have time
  10. Leave it out for about 15 minutes to soften before serving*
  11. Scoop into a bowl, topped with your choice of fruits or nuts, and serve~

*Note: Commercial ice cream is made with a considerable amount of air, and the weight of coconut milk will make the ice cream more dense and icy. Make sure you leave it out to soften before scooping!

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
