Matcha Green Tea Vegan Ice-cream

My toddler made me pretty proud. His teacher told me that they colored ice-cream for a lesson at school and when she asked if his was green for mint chocolate chip he said "No, it's green tea". I am so happy that he's learning to associate healthy items with food and he knows what natural colors are. 
Of course I wanted to reinforce this lesson so I decided to make some green tea ice-cream. I have only recently tried matcha when our local tea shop started offering it 'bullet proof' style. It is so delicious and creamy, I like regular brewed green tea, but I love matcha! I made this recipe extra healthy by sweetening it with fruit. Matcha has some caffeine in it so we've been enjoying this treat earlier in the day. It is very rich and creamy so a small serving goes a long way. Enjoy!
