Matcha Green Tea Cream Pots with Toasted Walnut Crumbs


This delicious dessert is the perfect second course to any meal. It features an amazing combination of healthy ingredients, such as green matcha powder and walnuts.

Green Match Powder

Green matcha powder is crammed full of antioxidants while also being great for burning fat and boosting the metabolism.


When you eat raw, organic nuts, you really can’t go wrong in terms of doing good things for your overall health. Walnuts are one of the best choices you can make for all of their amazing health properties.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the majority of the antioxidants in walnuts are found just under the waxy skin, so be sure not to remove it when you use them in the recipe. It does have a slightly bitter flavour but it’s not unpleasant and is well worth including in your dish.

Matcha Green Tea Cream Pots with Toasted Walnut Crumbs

To make three of these pots, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. green matcha powder
  • 250ml green tea
  • 6 tbsp. maple syrup, honey or coconut nectar
  • 100g toasted chopped walnut pieces
  • 2 x 400ml tins of coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
  • 1 tbsp. honey, maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced into 2cm rounds


For the matcha sauce:

To make the matcha sauce, put the green tea, 3 tbsp of coconut nectar, and 1 tsp. of matcha in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5-10 minutes until sauce is thickened a bit.

Then you can toast the chopped walnuts in a dry frying pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. After these few minutes, you can remove them from heat and place in a bowl to cool.

For the coconut cream:

To make the coconut cream, remove the tins from the fridge but be careful not to shake them. Open the tins and carefully scoop out the thickened cream off the top and place into a mixing bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of coconut nectar and vanilla to the mixing bowl and beat well for 5 minutes until the cream is thick and fluffy.

In glass tumblers, layer the 2 tbsp. of the walnuts then drizzle with the matcha syrup, then top with a layer of coconut cream and enough bananas to cover the cream. You can then repeat the layers. Sprinkle the very top with more walnut crumbs and a drizzle of the matcha syrup. You can then enjoy immediately!

  1. Interesting dessert right there. I’ve been wanting to do a different recipe with matcha and just stumbled upon this site. I’ve tried the matcha cake and would like to know the recommended amount of matcha I should use.
