Good morning!

It's my brother's 21st birthday today, and what better way to celebrate than with a huge bowl of ice cream? Exactly!

Also, we're in London. Which is almost as good as ice cream.

Sunday means the day before Monday, and I hate mondays. Especially when it's exam period and all i do is study, study, study -.- BUT what keeps me going is A) a good breakfast to fuel my brain like this beautiful Matcha Chocolate ice cream bowl with buckwheat and cacao nibs on top that i had this morning, and B) a good workout in between that will make you sweat and take your mind off things for a moment. 

Actually, what you see above is just Matcha ice cream with cacao nibs. The following pictures show the marvellous Matcha + Chocolate Ice Cream, which is basically a marriage of my two favourite nice creams: Matcha ice cream and Chocolate ice cream!


2-3 frozen bananas 
1 tsp Matcha powder 
1-2 tsp oats 

2-3 frozen bananas 
2 tsp cacao powder 
3 dates, chopped 

Cacao nibs 
Shredded coconut

- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


Blend half frozen bananas in a high-speed blender or food processor until creamy consistency, add a splash of water if necessary. Add in oats and matcha powder to the blender. Scoop ice cream into bowl and place in freezer. 

Blend remaining frozen bananas in a high-speed blender or food processor until creamy consistency, add a splash of water if necessary to help the blender. Add in cacao powder and dates to the blender. 

Take matcha ice cream out of freezer. Scoop cacao ice cream into bowl and add toppings. Eat, enjoy, cherish your nice cream.
