  1. I just tried this recipe. Are you sure it’s 2 tablespoons matcha, not teaspoons? Whoa! It tastes very, very strong! Not in a good way. Too much matcha. Also the coconut cream does not whip into the consistency of whipped cream… is there something I need to know?

    1. If you refridgerate a can of whole coconut milk overnight and gently open it, using only the top most layer of the hardened cream, it will whip pretty nicely. I sometimes add a little tapioca starch to help it stiffen up a bit.

    2. I used a whole avocado and 2 tsp of matcha (after reading this). I also added a little honey. It’s still setting so I don’t know how it will come out, but the taste was good going into the fridge.

  2. I agree, way too much matcha! Very bitter and unappealing and not a pretty green shade, but more of a brownish green color. I had to throw out the whole batch.

  3. This sounded so delicious, and after reading the other comments I made with two teaspoons instead of tablespoons. I thought it was still too bitter, and quite frankly, this recipe was just gross. I even tried adding some sweetener to make it taste good but I still threw it all out in the end.
