I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of coffee I consume every morning. It’s only kind of working, but I have found that replacing some coffee with the grassy taste of matcha (matcha is a powder made of green tea leaves that have been finely ground) has been a fun diversion for my jittery self.
And, as you know, I love popsicles and have enjoyed making coffee-themed breakfast pops like these Pumpkin Spice Lattes on a Stick, so I thought I’d give matcha a try in pop form. I played around with the recipe and found that super simple is best with these babies. These are also dairy-free which is helpful for us IBS peeps.
