I am a fan of incorporating superfoods like Superfood Matcha into my diet whenever I can!
Did you know that in Japanese “cha” means green tea, and “ma” means powder, thus matcha translates literally as “powdered green tea”.
Preparation and consumption of matcha entered mainstream culture through the Zen Buddhists, who were very aware of its meditational benefits, which brought them a greater sense of clarity and well-being.
Note: This recipe has modifications for vegan, paleo dairy free and a standard keto version. Try one or both!
Further Food Commentary:
This ice cream is a great treat for a hot day, without the guilt! Matcha is a powdered and more concentrated form of green tea, therefore being very high in the anti-oxidant EGCg. EGCg has been shown to decrease cancer risk, keep your brain healthy, and have anti-inflammatory effects. Adding collagen here is a great way to add protein to a meal that usually lacks it while also helping to repair your gut lining at the same time.
