Matcha green tea latte popsicles are the perfect refreshing treat for those hot summer afternoons when you need a little pick-me-up. Matcha. 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.
I 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.
Enjoy these refreshing pops on a hot summer afternoon when you need a little mid-day pick-up.Print

Tell me, have you ever tried matcha green tea powder before? What’s your favorite go-to popsicle flavor this summer?
Thanks for this recipe. I had some left over matcha powder in the cabinet. I mixed in some shredded coconut too. Can’t wait to try these out!
Sounds delicious with coconut!
Oh these look so creamy and tasty! Can’t wait to give them a try!
Has anyone tried using the Vanilla Lite and Fit yogurt? Not sure if it would come out as creamy as Greek yogurt….but it’s what I have in the fridge!
Hey Aeriel – I haven’t tried it but I’m sure any yogurt would work just fine!
Is there a different base without the yogourt for those of us who are dairy-free? Also, how much gluten and/or gelatin in this recipe? Thank you for the great work!
You could use a non-dairy yogurt or milk alternative. No gluten or gelatin in this recipe. Thanks, Anna!
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?
That’s odd! What kind of matcha powder did you use? I can’t imagine why the matcha powder would sink to the bottom if it’s blended in well incorporated.
Seriously? These are awesome Kara! I need to get some popsicle molds…NOW! 🙂
DO IT! Total game changer 😉
love the look and sound of these! will definitely have to make them!
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!
I love matcha, but I was wondering, what matcha do you use and where can you buy it?
Hey Sarah – I like Encha Organic Matcha – you can purchase online: https://encha.com/
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.
Thanks, Lauren!! Found the molds at a local kitchen store in my hood. And I just got into Yummly – loving it so far!
These look so good! I love that they only have a few ingredients in them!
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
It’s definitely having a moment. Thanks, Jessica! That smoothie bowl looks bomb!
