Matcha and Coconut Popsicles

Matcha is a very fine powder of high-quality green tea. You’ll find it at good food stores and health food shops. These are quite a grown-up popsicle with a soft sweetness and rich flavour.


1 x 400-gram can full-fat coconut cream
½ cup almond milk
1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla paste


Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. Pour into 6 popsicle moulds. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Insert wooden ice block sticks if solid enough to support them. Otherwise check back in a further 20 minutes.

Leave to freeze for at least 2 hours.

Can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Makes 6 popsicles
