Vegan Green Tea Ice Cream Smoothie
Why I Love This Recipe
I love a hot cup of green tea, and I LOVE a generous helping of green tea ice cream. But after rubbing my belly on way too many Japanese feasting occasions I decided to look for a healthy vegan green tea ice cream recipe that would enable me to feed my green tea ice cream addiction without the need to coat-check my liver!
So I decided to create a vegan green tea smoothie where green tea and green tea ice cream lovers could get their fix in a more decadent way in minutes!
Now, this smoothie will not be for everyone. If you are not a green tea lover, you might want to move on to the next smoothie. It does have a strong green tea flavour. But I can’t get enough of this smoothie. It is delicious! What I love the most about it is that is not too sweet.
I have used organic tofu to thicken and flavour this dairy free smoothie. But if you want to make this smoothie soy free, you could thicken this smoothie with more avocado. I have added ½ an avocado for a subtle green colour. But you could always add more.
This smoothie tastes delicious either way. Be bold and give this vegan green tea ice cream smoothie a go. You might be pleasantly surprised.
