Healthy Matcha



It was her memories of eating at a small Japanese retuarant with her parents every other week that inspired Lacey, a full time blogger from Texas (A Sweet Pea Chef) to recreate her favourite dessert – Green Tea Iceream.

However she wanted to create a healthier green tea. One that wasn’t loaded with heavy cream, condensed milk, or sugar. So she turned it into a frozen yogurt using Greek Gods Traditional Plain Greek Yogurt and just 3 other ingredients.

“Guys, this 4 ingredient Matcha Frozen Yogurt is BEYOND delicious. It’s everything I wanted it to be and more. Nowadays, I top it with some toasted coconut for texture and it’s. just. heaven.” -Lacey



3 cups Greek Gods Traditional Plain greek yogurt
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tbsp Encha Culinary-grade Organic Japanese Matcha
1 tsp vanilla extract


Makes 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 5 hrs
Total Time: 5 hr 10 min



Start by adding the Greek Gods Traditional Plain greek yogurt to a kitchen blender, followed by pure maple syrup, matcha powder, and vanilla extract.

Now, blend until fully mixed.

You may need to scrape down the sides using a spatula.

Transfer this mixture to an ice cube tray mold or two. (You could also use an ice cream maker at this point, if you’d prefer.)

Once you’ve filled all the ice cube blocks, transfer to the freezer and freeze until solid, about 4-6 hours.

Once frozen, remove from the tray and transfer to the bowl of a food processor. Process until all the cubes are completely broken down and you have the creamy consistency of frozen yogurt. (You may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a time or two to help it along and it can also help to let the cubes sit for a minute or two to slightly thaw.)

The matcha frozen yogurt is ready to eat now, or you can transfer to an airtight container and freeze for later.

I love to top this frozen yogurt with some toasted coconut flakes for a little texture. See notes for how to make toasted coconut.



To make toasted coconut, spread 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or tin foil and place in preheated oven at 325 degrees F. for 5-6 minutes, tossing halfway through. Watch carefully as they can burn easily. Coconut is ready when light golden brown and fragrant.
