St Patty's Day Green Tea Ice Cream

This ice cream is not only vegan {dairy-free} but also contains only 4 ingredients. When making green tea ice cream, it's important to buy really good matcha green tea. Warning: it's expensive! But, you can also drink this wonderful matcha tea and it's full of wonderful antioxidants. I think it's the healthiest tea around. 

Also, you can choose your sweetener of choice for this recipe. I did a blend of organic sugar and erythritol. Vanilla bean and vanilla extract combined, adds a wonderful flavor as well. 

What a fun, healthy dessert for St Patty's Day! It does contain caffeine so it might not be the best idea for kids. There are no fake dyes though {wink}!
