Ice Cream:

  • 100 ml sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon Hojicha Co. Hojicha Powder
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 200 ml coconut cream just the cream that has solidified from 1 can of coconut milk

Matcha chocolate shell:

  • 100 g white chocolate chopped
  • 5 g coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon matcha


  • In a large bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed coconut milk, hojicha powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt until combined. Set aside.
  • Place the coconut cream in a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and whip until stiff peaks, gradually increasing the mixer speed. Be careful not to overwhip.
  • Remove the whipped coconut cream and fold in ⅓ of it into the condensed milk mixture with a spatula. This will lighten the condensed milk mixture. Continue to fold in another third of the mixture and repeat until all the whipped coconut cream has been folded in.
  • Place the silicone ice cream molds onto a small baking tray. Fill the ice cream molds with the hojicha coconut cream and give the tray a tap to release any trapped air bubbles. Smooth the tops of the molds and place into the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Make the matcha chocolate shell:

  • In the meantime, add the white chocolate and coconut oil to a small, tall mason jar.
  • Microwave the chocolate in 20-second increments until melted.
  • Stir in the matcha powder until combined.

Coat the ice cream bars

  • Remove the ice cream from the molds and dip into the matcha chocolate one by one. Repeat with the remainder.
  • Place the covered ice cream bars onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and return to the freezer for another 15 minutes.
  • Store the ice cream bars in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
