Energizing matcha popsicles – homemade, healthy and plant-based

Matcha popsicles - homemade, healthy and plant-based Matcha popsicles - homemade, healthy and plant-basedOkay so the weather in Denmark right now is certainly not very summery, but I am still craving ice cream and popsicles, so lets just pretend that the sun is shining ;) I have shared these bright green matcha popsicles before, but only in Danish so I thought it was time to get the recipe translated to english as well. They are by far one of my favorite popsicle recipes, I mean how pretty are these?! I love the beautiful green color from the matcha powder and the matcha flavor is just perfect for healthy treats when you combine it with vanilla and a little bit of chocolate. I love to add lemon juice and fresh mint leaves as well for a little extra zing and freshness, but that can easily be left out if you prefer a sweeter and more tradtional dessert flavor. I hope you lovelies will enjoy these as much as I do ❤︎

And to give you a brief little overview, the popsicles are:
Dairy-free
Refined sugar-free
Made from natural and healthy ingredients
Vegan/plant-based
Full of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and antioxidants

You can still find the recipe in Danish right here! And make sure to check out my post on matcha and it’s benefits right here as well!

Ingredients – yields 4 popsicles:
1 frozen banana, ripe w. brown dots
1 avocado
2 deciliter coconut milk*
1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla powder
2 -3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or a similar sweetener
2-3 teaspoons matcha
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice – optional
1 small handful fresh mint leaves – optional
A popsicle mould

*I use the thick part from a can of coconut milk, the leftover watery part can be used in smoothies

For decoration: melted dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao), a little bit of matcha, freeze-dried raspberry and chopped pistachios

Matcha popsicles - homemade, healthy and plant-basedDirections:
Simply add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour the mixture into your popsicle moulds and add a popsicle stick in each. Place the mould in the freezer for 4-5 hours or until the popsicles are frozen solid. If you’d like you can decorate the popsicles with a little bit of melted dark chocolate, matcha, freeze-dried raspberry and chopped pistachios.

Tip: If you are having trouble getting the popsicles out of the mould, then you can run it under warm water for a couple of seconds and they should pop right out.
