Plant Based Matcha Latte Popsicles

Matcha Latte Popsicles (plant based)

With creamy layers of matcha and vanilla made from coconut milk, these vegan popsicles are the frozen, refreshing dessert every matcha fan needs to cool off on those warmer days!

Now that summer is (nearly) here, it's officially iced matcha latte season. With this recipe, we're taking it even one step further by declaring frozen matcha latte season! We absolutely love how beautiful, delicious and better-for-you these ice pops are, and we hope you do to!  Show us your stripes and tag us @jadeleafmatcha in your re-creations...

Tools You'll Need
  • Popsicle mold
  • Sifter
  • Bamboo whisk or electric whisk
Ingredients

 

What Kind of Matcha Should You Use?

We used our Barista Ceremonial Grade Matcha for the matcha layer in these pops, but any grade of matcha you like can work in this recipe.

Directions to Make Matcha Latte Popsicles 

These pops consist of two different flavors: vanilla and matcha. The two flavors are layered to create a gorgeous striped pattern and makes it easy to enjoy both flavors at once.

Making these popsicles is super simple! Since there are two flavors, first we have to divide the coconut milk evenly- one cup of coconut milk to make the vanilla layer and one cup to make the matcha layer. For the vanilla layer, we mix the vanilla and maple syrup into the coconut milk. For the matcha layer, we'll mix in vanilla, maple syrup, and matcha.

 sifter

Make sure you use a sifter to break up any matcha clumps.

Use a chasen (bamboo whisk) or electric whisk to combine the matcha with the coconut milk, until no specks of matcha remain. 

After both flavors are ready, it’s time to freeze! We’ll start with the vanilla layer; add about two teaspoons to the popsicle mold and freeze for about 15-20 minutes, or until the layer is set.

Next, the matcha layer; add about two teaspoons to the popsicle mold and freeze for about 10-15 minutes, or until the layer is set.

Repeat these steps until the mold is full and you have alternating layers of white and green.

Note that you might want to use more than two teaspoons of each mixture to form your layers, depending on how large your popsicle mold is. Just make sure you’re adding the same amount of each flavor to every layer to get even stripes!
