Matcha Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (Dairy-Free, Low Carb)

Print

Last week I made this no-churn matcha chocolate chip ice cream that came out just perfect. Super creamy and delicious–that is if you’re a matcha-lover like me. The key ingredients that make this ice cream extra special are coconut cream and avocado. If you can’t find coconut cream, coconut milk works as well. Just be sure to leave it in the fridge overnight, do not shake it, and only use the solid cream on top. You can save the coconut water at the bottom of the can in a jar to later use in smoothies or chia puddings.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Ice cream with benefits? Count us in! Matcha is loaded with antioxidants, containing 137x as many antioxidants as other teas! As if that weren't enough, matcha tastes delicious and helps to reduce stress and calm our minds. Each serving of this ice cream contains only 9g of carbs so it is clearly in a league of its own!
