Who doesn’t love green ice cream? This dairy-free coconut ice cream is brightly green. The earthy matcha flavor pairs beautifully with a drizzle of Kikkoman® Sesame Oil for an irresistible homemade dessert. And of course, preparing a homemade dessert together is the perfect way to encourage kids to try new flavors. Prep time is minimal — all you need is the patience to let your ice cream freeze before digging in!
2 ½ cups canned unsweetened full fat coconut milk ⅓ cup sugar 2 teaspoons matcha powder (add another teaspoon for stronger flavor) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ⅛ teaspoon sea salt 2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Sesame Oil, for drizzling
Heat coconut milk over medium heat in a saucepan until hot but not boiling, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and whisk in matcha powder, ⅓ cup of sugar, vanilla and sea salt until thoroughly combined. Taste and add additional sugar if desired. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and chill mixture in refrigerator for 30 minutes. This will help mixture freeze evenly.
Stir mixture once more and pour into a loaf pan, then cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 2 hours.
Stir, scraping sides with a spoon for even freezing and freeze an additional 2 hours for soft serve style or add an additional 4 hours for firmer ice cream.
Scoop ice cream into bowls and serve drizzled with sesame oil.
