Refreshing and light homemad Blender Matcha Kakigori. A Japanese dessert made vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and oil free.
- Start by preparing matcha by bringing 1/4 cup of filtered water to a low boil. Once the water begins to boil, remove from heat and let sit for about a minute.
- Prepare a serving of matcha and whisk with the hot, but not boiling water, until clumps are removed and matcha is light and frothy. Add another 1/4 cup of cold filtered water along with maple syrup to taste and whisk lightly.
- Finally, prepare ice. Add ice to blender and use the pulse function, or blend in spurts, using a tamper to help break down the ice. Transfer ice into a serving glass and pour matcha mixture over the ice. Add toppings of choice and enjoy.
*Keep in mind the mixture should be sweeter than a normal drink as the crushed ice will mellow out the flavour. Think syrup, and add a little more maple than you usually would.
