Matcha Popsicles with Blueberries & Raspberries
June 21, 2019
1First decide if you are going to make one or two flavors of matcha pops. For this recipe, we decided to do three raspberry and three blueberry. If you do two flavors like we did, then simply divide the recipe in half! If you choose to stick to one flavor, follow the recipe and ingredients as written.
2To start, we took 1/4 cup of each type of fresh fruit and heated it until the fruit was a runny sauce. You can do this on a stove top, or in the microwave. We then combined half of each fruit mixture with 1/2 a cup of coconut yogurt. We took the remaining 2 cups of coconut yogurt and divided it evenly into two bowls. We mixed in 2.5 tbsp of blueberry matcha to one cup of yogurt and 2.5 tbsp of raspberry matcha to the other cup. At this point, you should have three mixtures: fruit sauce, fruit & yogurt, and matcha & yogurt.
3Now you can start assembling! Start by spooning your fruit mixtures evenly into the bottom of your popsicle molds. Then spoon your fruit and yogurt mixture evenly on top of your respective fruit. Finally, spoon your matcha mixtures on top of the fruit and yogurt. Once you have all three layers in each mold, sprinkle the remaining fresh fruit pieces on the top of each popsicle, mixing in the chunks with a popsicle stick.
4Once you have finished placing your popsicle sticks in the molds, freeze for a minimum of five hours. When they are nice and frosty, run hot water over the molds to easily remove your popsicles. Store them by wrapping each matcha pop in wax paper for up to a week!
