A fusion of Banana and Green Tea
Do you like matcha? I didn’t, until I tried this Matcha Nice Cream, perfectly bedded in a papaya boat. Papaya boats are very popular on Instagram, but if you google the term, there are only about 400.000 hits (WHAT 😲??)! On the other hand, this is awesome, because I can use it as focus keyword and there’s a good chance that I can make on the first page of Google (at least if I manage to use “papaya boat” a few more times 😅) .
A Fusion of Bananas and Green Tea
Papayas are hard to find over here. There are two different kinds, big ones, and baby papayas. I prefer small ones because they are easier to shoot (always practical oriented 😅). All these flowers grow in our garden, by the way. The pink one is an English Daisy, one of my favorite edible flowers. I don’t eat it as a whole (in contrast to common white daisy or violets), I pick the flower buds and sprinkle it over my breakfast.
You need only two ingredients for this Matcha Nice Cream – frozen overripe bananas and matcha tea. Everything else is decoration – the flowers, the raspberries and the papaya, of course. You can also serve your Matcha Nice Cream in pineapple boat or a cracked coconut. It’s all up to you!
There are a lot of possibilities to vary this recipe. Add frozen pineapple chunks or frozen honeydew melon, pears or whatever you have on hand. What’s your favorite combo for Nice Cream? Let me know in the comments below – I would love to hear from you 😘😘!
