Refreshing and light homemad Blender Matcha Kakigori. A Japanese dessert made vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and oil free.


  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 serving matcha (I like to use about 1/2 tbsp per serving)
  • filtered water
  • maple syrup to taste*



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
