Matcha Fried Ice Cream (Sugar Free, THM~S, Gluten Free)

Matcha "Fried" Ice Cream {THM~S, Sugar Free, Low Carb}

I love fried ice cream and since it is National Ice Cream Month my posts wouldn’t be complete without this Matcha Fried Ice Cream !

Matcha is an ingredient we don’t hear a lot about in the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook Group. It is a wonderful green tea that is used in Japanese tea ceremonies as well as in a lot of their dessert recipes.It has lots of antioxidants and is a very healthy addition to your tea collection.

Green tea is often mentioned within the pages of the Trim Healthy Mama book, however it seems to get overlooked, I’m not quite sure why. Disclosure Statement

Matcha has a high content of ECGC which helps with weight loss, energy levels etc.

OK I’m rambling… Back to the Matcha Fried Ice Cream


This recipe is great, it has built-in portion control as well as you won’t even know you are eating healthy ice cream! With hints of creamy vanilla and cinnamon and a sweet crunchy shell.

I used the Cinnamon Crunch Cereal recipe from All Day I Dream About Food for the cinnamon shell.

and broke it up a little more than it was supposed to be.


I did save the bigger “chunks” to feed my cereal addiction …

I made Matcha Ice Cream in my Ice Cream Maker and froze it into scoops (About 1 hour).

Then I rolled the frozen scoops in the cereal crumbs and froze them for about 15 minutes or until ready to be served.

    1. it helps the ice cream not be as icy… almond milk has a lot of water in it and the vodka helps to keep things creamy and scoopable. If you aren’t storing it for longer than 2 hours you don’t really need it in the recipe 🙂

  1. Does the ice cream have enough flavor on its own? And would the scrambled whole eggs be okay or are the whites better flavored? UPS just delivered my first batch of Matcha powder, so of course I was thinking of making ice cream first. Lol. After all, it’s still summer.

    I made the vanilla custard with peanut butter and Lily’s dark chocolate bar chopped. I found it hard to believe I was eating such a delicious treat ~ without the guilt!

    1. I do really enjoy it with the Matcha, it isn’t a bold taste so you can adjust up if you want to… I actually like the taste with the scrambled eggs better than with only egg whites it makes it richer. I’m so glad you enjoyed the vanilla custard it is one of my favorites 🙂
