Photos and original recipe by Maggie (

In this dessert, the coffee replaces the soda and allies with the green tea.

The ice cream float, is initially an American dessert drink, prepared from ice cream and soda. Today, Gourmesso offers a variant based on ice cream with matcha tea and espresso. On the contrary to what one might think, the matcha tea and the coffee combine marvelously!

Did you know? Matcha tea has surprising antioxidant properties, and is rich in vitamins and minerals. It comes in the form of a powder, and unlike conventional teas, it is not prepared in infusion. The powder is sieved, covered with water, then the mixture is whipped with a bamboo utensil.
