  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 4 bananas
    (frozen and sliced)
  • 3 teaspoon matcha (green tea)
  • 1-2 teaspoon non- dairy milk of choice - 1-2 teaspoons
    or as needed to loosen the banana from the sides of the food processor)


  • Slice your strawberries and line up the strawberries on the bottom and sides of your ice cream cups. I cut my strawberries horizontal as this worked the best for me. )If you wish to make coconut whipped cream, https://www.hwcmagazine.com/recipe/homemade-coconut-whipped-cream/)
  • Place frozen sliced bananas in the food processor (I have a very small food processor so I did only 2 bananas and 1 teaspoon of matcha green tea in 3 different batches, but if you have a large food processor you can do it all in one batch) Add matcha green tea to the frozen banana slices and pulse until it looks like finely ground sand. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Add only 1 teaspoon, at a time, of iced cold dairy-free milk of choice and stop the food processor occasionally to scrape down the sides so that everything gets blended well. Add up to 5 teaspoons of iced cold water for 6 frozen bananas. Once the food processor just starts to get going around, keep pulsing and blending until the frozen bananas turn from granules of sand into a smooth and creamy soft serve ice cream consistency. (You will know you are getting close as the frozen bananas will turn from a dark green to a lighter green colour.)
  • Immediately scoop the matcha banana ice-cream on top of your strawberries and fill the cup. Garnish with coconut whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping. Enjoy!



The matcha banana ice-cream melts quickly. If you freeze your matcha banana ice-cream in the cup, it turns more icy and less creamy, so best enjoyed right away.
