Matcha Coconut & Coconut Brown Sugar Spread

Matcha Coconut Spread - pigoutyvr

I’ve been looking for a great pairing for black sesame pastries, and I noticed that many recommend matcha. It looks like the two pungent-flavored ingredients pair surprisingly well. So I decided to go for something simple, with the limited ingredients I had at home to make two lactose-free, vegan spreads – Matcha Coconut Spread and Coconut Brown Sugar Spread. You can use these spreads on bread or scones.

Many online recipes use whipping cream in their matcha spread, so I’ve also tried using this method. I found there is a subtle difference in time and texture for spreads with and without the whipping cream. My conclusion is the spread is smoother and silkier without the usage of whipping cream, but it takes probably an extra 10-15 minutes to make the spread. It is definitely worth the wait.

I also used coconut milk instead of regular milk. It has a subtle sweetness, with a nutty, floral flavor added to the spread. Therefore, I also use minimal sugar in this recipe. I also enjoyed the Brown Sugar Coconut Spread so much, as the coconut flavor is strong. With the use of brown sugar, it tastes like caramelized condensed milk.

Coconut Matcha Spread
