Dairy-Free Green Tea Ice Cream
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This easy ice cream has a rich infusion of green tea flavor. But unlike the matcha option, the brewed version has a very pale yellow-green hue. You can optionally use a natural green food coloring to achieve a more a more vibrant look.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup dairy-free unsweetened milk beverage (I use Silk Cashewmilk, but nut-free is okay)
  • 6 green tea bags
  • ½ cup organic sugar
  • 1¼ cups full-fat canned coconut milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Natural green food coloring (optional)
  1. Heat the milk beverage in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot and steaming (just before it begins to boil).
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and steep the tea bags in the hot milk for 5 minutes. Squeeze each tea bag to extract as much of the milky green tea as possible.
  3. Whisk in the sugar until dissolved.
  4. Whisk in the coconut milk until smooth.
  5. The natural color of this ice cream is very pale. For a green hue, you can whisk in your favorite natural green food coloring.
  6. Pour the mixture into a 3-cup or larger glass measuring cup and let cool to room temperature. Then cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or more.
  7. Churn the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. (or see How to Make Vegan Ice Cream without an Ice Cream Maker)
  8. Enjoy as soft serve or pack into an airtight container and freeze for 3 hours or more for hard-packed, dairy-free, green tea ice cream!
Matcha Ice Cream Option: Substitute 1 tablespoon matcha powder for the green tea bags. Add more matcha, to taste, if desired.
