If serving to guests, you may also decide to garnish your ice cream with coconut flakes, which not only add flavor and texture, abut also add to the tropical taste.
Besides giving an exotic flavor to this ice cream, the matcha tea powder is a powerhouse of antioxidants and nutrients. It’s an extremely impressive superfood.
