It’s hard to believe that something that tastes so good, like this Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt, is good for you too!
How about some green tea goodness in a sweet and tangy frozen dessert?!
I don’t know about you, but I follow all the latest scientific evidence and studies on antioxidants and good for you foods. The thing is they seem to change daily. Butter – bad for you, then better than margarin for you. Coffee, not so good, then yes, it’s good. Bacon – bad for you, then good for you. Well, maybe I made up the one about the the bacon, but there are some foods that are high in antioxidants and everyone agrees on them. One of those is green tea. Every morning, I try to have a cup of coffee, a cup of black tea, and a cup of green tea. I like to try and cover all my bases. But then I found an even easier way to make sure I had my green tea covered – ORGANIC Matcha Green Tea Powder – wow, how have I gone this long without using this!
The thing is, I’ve seen it show up on a lot of food blogs, but I always thought it was just as easy to make a cup of green tea. Wrong. First of all you only need a little of this, just 1/2 to 1 teaspoon gives you up to 137 times the EGCG of brewed green tea! As soon as I got it, I knew I was going to cook with it, but the hubs wanted to try it just mixed with a little water and some agave. So good. So easy. And, I couldn’t believe the energy boost it gave me. He now uses it every morning in his protein shake! So, we’re going to have to keep plenty of this around, so I have enough for cooking and making things like Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt!
This Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt is heavy on the green tea flavor. I love it, but feel free to reduce the amount of Matcha Green Tea Powder if you’d like. This is such a creamy, tasty dessert, that is good and good for you! The vanilla vodka is optional, but I use it to keep my treats from freezing so hard. I made it in my favorite ice cream maker: Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker
Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt
This Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt is so good and so good for you!
Combine all the ingredients in a large batter bowl and whisk until blended. It takes a little bit of time to get the yogurt to whisk in and the powder and sugar to dissolve, but it will!
Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Process in your ice cream maker per directions.
