Matcha Coconut Ice Cream With Agave Nectar, Xanthan Gum and Fresh Mint

Who doesn't like a good bowl of ice cream that melts in your mouth? Well, I guess we know the answer to that. Different flavors and tender texture are what makes this ice-cold dessert so popular.

This recipe is based on a classic vanilla flavor but in some new and, in my opinion, improved version. It contains full-fat coconut milk which is combined with almond milk and the best quality matcha for a healthy and creamy flavor you've never tasted before.

Natural almond milk can be replaced with vanilla-flavored almond milk for even better taste. And if you're not a fan, you can add some other non-dairy milk you like. Top with some fresh mint, wild berries, maple syrup, or hot fudge sauce and enjoy!

Coconut milk is one of my favorite dairy products substitute. I absolutely adore its smell and somewhat tropical taste that can be combined with so many different dessert recipes.

Besides, it's probably one of the best ways to add some important nutrients to your everyday diet. Coconut milk, cream, and oil contain beneficial fats that are easily absorbed by our body.

It's extremely beneficial for heart health, cholesterol levels, musclebuilding, and low energy problems. When combined with matcha green tea powder and almond milk, you get a super-powerful dessert that will leave you speechless.
