Matcha Vegan Green Tea Ice cream topped with buckinis and carob sauce


The weekend is almost here and we’re looking forward to some time off enjoying the best things in life.

To help you celebrate the end of the week, we’ve got an awesome matcha that’s loved all over the world - Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream!

Matcha ice cream is a huge foodie trend right now because it combines the delicious favour and health benefits of matcha in a dish everyone loves.

Our Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream recipe from Cherie Tu is vegan, raw, dairy free and sugar free so it’s it much healthier than regular ice cream. The main ingredients are only bananas and matcha powder. But remember, balance is the key to a healthy lifestyle – so enjoy this delicious treat in moderation.

Cherie Tu is a super talented recipe developer with a HUGE dedication to vegan food and a wholesome lifestyle. She loves to create, documents and share her wonderful vegan recipes, which you can check out:

You can top this green tea banana ice cream with your favorite fruits, sauces, or nuts. Cherie topped hers with buckinis and her own carob sauce. Carob is substitute ingredient for cacao powder.

Both cacao and carob are low in calories but cacao has a more chocolaty taste than carob. Carob however does not have caffeine, which makes it a great alternative for anyone with high blood pressure.

Buckini is activated buckwheat, where the seed is soaked evenly in water. It has various health benefits, such as reducing risk of high cholesterol and blood pressure, regulating blood sugar, and maintaining healthy weight.

Now, lets make some ice cream – matcha style

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

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.
