MATCHA SEMIFREDDO



Contributor: Joanas Riccardi

A delicious adaptogenic spin on this Italian classic dessert, Joanas Riccardi creates a mouth-watering Matcha Semifreddo that you won’t be able to resist.

A unique combination of warm spices and delicious plant based ingredients, The Matcha Semifreddo is one of my favorite dishes to whip up. Made with Sun Potion’s Matcha, cardamom, cloves, walnut milk and a touch of agave, this Semifreddo is rich in antioxidants and may help aid digestion, reset the gut, and decrease inflammation. This creamy and sweet treat melts in your mouth, making it easy for you to replace the summertime gelato or ice-cream cravings for a healthier alternative. The plating style was inspired by Black Rock’s playa, arid yet filled with astonishing art and beautiful people.

Growing up in Italy I cultivated my passion for food during my youth. When I moved to America I discovered adaptogenic plants, plant based food, superfoods and other transformational foods. Since then, I’ve been studying and refining recipes to create balance within mind, body and spirit.

Joanas's work is about connecting mind and soul through adaptogenic, plant-based cuisine.  He is a raw dessert chef and focuses on culinary nutrition and photography.
