What is Matcha?

Matcha is a Japanese green tea powder made with finely ground, dried green tea leaves. It is known for its health benefits, which are more than just being an antioxidant. It is also popular for its vibrant green color and slightly bitter, vegetal taste, which is why you will find it a matcha latte or dalgona coffee. Matcha is also a popular flavor found in ice cream. The slightly bitter matcha pairs perfectly with the fat found in cream. That’s why matcha ice cream is so good!

Aside from ice cream and the matcha latte, this green tea powder has been the cornerstone for traditional Japanese tea parties for centuries. But its exceptional health benefits have made it famous in US households as well.

 

Does Green Tea Have Caffeine?

Yes – every 250ml of green tea contains 30 to 50 mg of caffeine. However, it is low compared to the recommended maximum of 400 mg caffeine a day.

How Much Matcha Powder to Use in Whipped Cream?

In this recipe, we add 4 teaspoons of matcha powder to make our whipped cream. For health benefits, nutritionists recommend using ½ to ¾ teaspoons of matcha powder per cup. Make sure you sift you matcha powder into the whipping cream so you don’t end up with clumpy green bits in your sugar free whipped cream. Plus it might make your cake not quite as elegant.

Importance of Sifting the Matcha

Matcha tends to clump together – and some of them survive even through the whisking process. Sifting helps prevent those tufts of green. Not sifting will leave you at risk of chewing on these bitter clumps when enjoying delicious matcha whipped cream.

Dairy Free Whipped Cream

If you wanted to make a dairy free version of this match cream, use coconut cream instead of heavy whipping cream. You can purchase a can of coconut cream or just get a can of coconut milk and pour off the liquid. You will be left with coconut cream.

  1. I made this recipe and wasn’t thrilled. The green tea powder makes the cream bitter. Even the sweetener didn’t help much. Yes, it is better with the chocolate cookies you recommended, but those cookies are amazing on their own. Why mess them up with bitter cream? I wouldn’t make this again.

    1. I’m sorry you didn’t care for the recipe. Matcha powder is bitter in general. It’s an acquired taste for some. Like with all keto dessert recipes you can adjust the sweetener to fit your taste preferences. Often when someone has been on the keto diet for a long time, they become overly sensitive to sweetness flavors and don’t require as much sweetener for it to taste sweet to them. Others that are starting out, require more.
