Matcha Tea Latte Popsicles + How to Use Yummly

Matcha green tea latte popsicles are the perfect refreshing treat for those hot summer afternoons when you need a little pick-me-up. Matcha green tea latte popsicles are the perfect refreshing treat for those hot summer afternoons when you need a little pick-me-up.  | @karalydon karalydon.com/blogMatcha. Matcha. Matcha. I feel like Matcha’s middle sister Jan right now because Matcha’s obviously getting all the attention lately.

I love matcha green tea powder. It’s packed with more antioxidants than steeped green tea and those antioxidants, also known as polyphenols, are anti-aging and have been shown to protect against chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and they may even boost metabolism!

Plus, I can’t get enough of its earthy flavor and beautiful green color. Matcha Green Tea Latte Popsicles-3I remember the first time I tried a matcha green tea latte at Starbucks. It had me at first sip. The creamy milk and foam balancing out the bitter green tea taste. With a little honey to sweeten. Glorious.

I wanted to recreate that matcha tea latte taste in popsicle form for the summer. Because ya’ll know how much I’m obsessed with my new pops molds.

I used Greek yogurt as the base, honey to sweeten, and vanilla to cut the bitterness and brighten the flavor. Matcha Green Tea Latte Popsicles-2Enjoy these refreshing pops on a hot summer afternoon when you need a little mid-day pick-up.

  1. I made these popsicles and they were great. But the matcha powder sank to the bottom after freezing. I did blend it well before hand. Is there a way to fix this?

    love the look and sound of these! will definitely have to make them!

  4. Hi these look amazing! I was just wondering if it matters what fat content the Greek yogurt has. Do you think it will be fine if I use yogurt with no fat? Thanks!

  5. I love matcha, but I was wondering, what matcha do you use and where can you buy it?

  6. Thanks for the overview on Yummly- I’ve been meaning to look into it more! Cutest popsicle mold by the way, I’ll have to try this recipe out.

  7. These look so good! I love that they only have a few ingredients in them!

  8. Sounds so good, creamy and refreshing!! I’ve been kind of obsessed with matcha this summer, seemingly like everyone else! Matcha is definitely having a moment. Loving it in a smoothie bowl! http://www.stylednutrition.com/blog/matcha-mint-smoothie-bowl-benefits-of-matcha
