Coconut Matcha Ice Cream (The Republic of Tea Matcha)

Coconut Matcha Ice Cream (The Republic of Tea Matcha)

You do not need special equipment to make this coconut matcha ice-cream. It is an antioxidant packed dessert. Green tea powder, or matcha, consists of stone-ground green tea leaves. As you probably already know, green tea boosts the metabolism, lifts your mood, is full of amino acids, and increases your energy. 

Matcha retains all of the health benefits of green tea leaves and your body absorbs far more when you eat it, rather than steeping the leaves into tea.

So that being said, vegans and non-vegans from all over the world, say hello to your new favorite ice-cream
