  • 1 Cup + 3 Tbsp of 100% Coconut Cream
  • 1 Tsp Culinary Grade Organic Matcha
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Honey mild flavor like Clover - or adjust the amount to your liking
  • Pinch of himalayan sea salt


  • Freeze the ice cream maker's container overnight.
  • In a small sauce pan, add Coconut Cream (or raw or organic cream if using dairy) and honey and bring to boil and simmer.
  • Add 3 Tbsp of hot Coconut cream to a small bowl. Add 1 Tsp of Matcha to the bowl and whisk vigorously, breaking up any clumps. The mixture should become pasty, like yogurt consistency. If more liquid is needed, add more coconut cream.
  • When matcha powder is completely dissolved, add the mixture to the pan, and stir well.
  • Let the mixture cool thoroughtly. One way to speed up the cooling process is to hold the pan in a cold water bath with ice cubes in a big pot. Be careful not to let water get in the pan.
  • When the ice cream maker is ready and pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and turn it on for 20-25 minutes.
  • At this time, the ice cream will be like soft serve.
  • If you want harder ice cream, store in a air tight glass container in the freezer for a few hours.
  • Enjoy!
