Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches ingredients

It's almost impossible to imagine warm summer days without this cold and creamy dessert everybody loves. There are hundreds of fantastic and tasty recipes out there but they usually come with lots of unhealthy sugars and other processed ingredients. Not to mention, they're almost always based on milk or some other dairy products which make this super popular dessert unsuitable for vegans.

Those were the main two reasons I wanted to create something that's healthy and completely vegan-friendly. This fantastic matcha ice cream recipe comes in the form of a healthy, oat sandwich packed with a wide range of nutrients your body really needs.

The cookies are based on classic rolled oats, sweet dates, almonds and some coconut for a wonderful aroma, while the ice cream filling uses some of the healthiest ingredients you can possibly imagine – avocado and matcha green tea powder. The combination of these two is simply fantastic. Give it a try.

Cooling the ice cream in the freezer before serving will preserve its structure and looks. Simply take it out about ten minutes before serving and it's already good as it is.

However, you can add different toppings for even better taste. The best options include hot fudge sauce, whipped cream, or frozen berries. I have decided to make my own, vegan-friendly, strawberry sauce using two simple ingredients – agave nectar and some strawberry extract.

The taste was phenomenal and the color really added a nice touch to these lovely sandwiches. For a healthy and vegan-friendly chocolate option, you can combine agave nectar with some raw cocoa. The results are mind-blowing. Give it a try.
