Matcha, the finely ground powder made from special green tea leaves, is packed with powerful antioxidants that can help tame inflammation and improve skin's appearance. I paired it with a few other all-star ingredients like berries, kale and flaxseed to make these sweet, delicious and nutrient-packed ice pops. These delightful, dairy-free treats are a cinch to prepare and are the perfect way to cool off on a hot day. Hope you love them as much my family does!

Ingredients

  • Matcha Ice Pops

    • 5 to 6 medium strawberries, diced
    • 1/2 cup blueberries
    • 1/2 cup blackberries, cut in half lengthwise
    • 1 ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
    • 1 ripe banana, cut into 8 to 10 chunks
    • 1 cup fresh kale leaves, loosely packed
    • Juice from half a lime (about 1 tablespoon)
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseeds
    • 1 teaspoon matcha powder

Preparation

1. Divide the fruit pieces evenly among six ice pop molds.

2. Puree the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared ice pop molds. Freeze until the pops are firm and solid, at least 3 hours.  

3. Pop them out of the molds and enjoy!
