Ways to Improve Your Matcha Soft Serve
Now that we have shown you how to make matcha soft serve, let's talk about a few ways that you can improve it! Here are several tips you can use to take your matcha soft serve to the next level.
Vegan Matcha Soft Serve
For a dairy-free matcha soft serve, substitute the heavy cream and whole milk with full-fat coconut milk. This creates a rich and creamy matcha coconut soft serve ice cream with a hint of tropical flavor.
Experiment with alternative sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar instead of granulated sugar. Adjust the amount to taste, keeping in mind that liquid sweeteners may affect the texture of your matcha soft serve slightly.

Enhance Matcha Flavor
Increase the amount of matcha powder used in the recipe for a more pronounced matcha flavor. Gradually add more matcha powder and taste along the way until you achieve the desired intensity.
Fold in desired mix-ins such as crushed cookies, chocolate chips, or chopped nuts into the ice cream during the last few minutes of churning. This adds texture and extra flavor to the matcha soft serve.
