Matcha ice cream

  • 1 1/2 cups macadamias
  • 500 ml water
  • 400 ml can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup raw caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup water boiling

Macadamia milk

  • 1 cup macadamias
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 fresh dates pitted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

To serve

  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 4 mint sprigs
  • 2 dates pitted, halved and cut into fine pieces


  • For the matcha ice cream, chill an ice cream maker bowl according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Blend the macadamias and water in a high-speed blender for 2-3 minutes. Strain through a nut bag and pour the liquid into a medium sized saucepan. Place over a medium heat and stir in the coconut milk and sugar.    
  • Place the matcha powder in a small dish with the boiling water and stir until smooth. Add to the milk mixture and stir to combine for about 2 minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool before pouring into the ice cream maker to churn until thick and chilled. Freeze until ready to serve. 
  • For the macadamia milk, blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender for 2-3 minutes. Strain through a nut bag and chill the liquid.
  • To serve, remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften slightly to a scoopable consistency. Blend half the ice cream with the milk and ice cubes in a high-speed blender until smooth. Pour into glasses and add a scoop of the remaining ice cream to each glass. Serve decorated with mint sprigs and chopped dates.
