For all you matcha ice cream fans, this low-carb/keto recipe is for you!
Finding low-carb/keto ice cream is not always easy and when you do find some, they are either filled with unwanted ingredients or they cost you an arm and a leg for a small little pint.
This is why I set out to make an easy, no fuss low-carb/keto ice cream that needed no expensive machinery, used only a few ingredients and took very little time to make.
My first successful attempt was a Strawberry Mason Jar Ice Cream that was so unbelievably good that I ended up eating it every night for a week straight!
That got me thinking what other ice cream flavors I can make and that’s when I decided to create with my second favorite flavor, matcha ice cream!
For those who are unfamiliar with matcha, it’s finely ground powder from green tea leaves that are specially grown in the shade which produces more theanine and caffeine.
Some health benefits of matcha include promoting relaxation, reducing stress and improving sleep, as well as boosting concentration and alertness.
A little tip, I tend to find this type of ice cream, made in a mason jar, taste the best with a 4-5 hour freeze. Any longer and it becomes very hard to scoop so keep that in mind when making it. I promise you it will be worth it!
I also think it’s worth mentioning that if you are expecting this ice cream to taste like slow churned haagen daz ice cream, this isn’t it.
We’re not using any binding agents nor are we using a fancy ice cream maker for this recipe so it’s important to manage your expectations especially for all you ice cream connoisseurs out there.
But if you’re low-carb/keto and craving some ice cream, this recipe will definitely help satisfy those desires!
