Matcha (Green Tea) Banana “Ice Cream”

If you’ve been on a food blog or Pinterest in the last year, you’ve probably seen the very popular one-ingredient ice cream made from frozen bananas. Also known as “nice cream,” I gave it a green twist by adding matcha and a little sweetened condensed milk.

I used the condensed milk to sweeten but you can always just replace that with honey or sugar if you’re avoiding dairy.

First, let me say that it tastes NOTHING like ice cream. It tastes like a sweetened banana with matcha that has the consistency of ice cream. (Which is a good thing if you like bananas and matcha.) Fool me once with that mashed cauliflower that they swear tastes like mashed potatoes but tastes exactly like mashed cauliflower.

It was a lot of fun watching the frozen bananas turn into what looks like soft serve ice cream. It’s really does look exactly like soft serve.

The frozen bananas are pretty hard so I may have seen a little smoke come out of the mini food processor as I was trying to soften the bananas initially. I would go with a regular food processor instead of the mini if you don’t want to start a small kitchen fire.

You can eat it as soon as everything is well blended, but I refroze for an hour and a half to harden it up a bit.
