These sweet and refreshing treats are jam-packed with good-for-you ingredients like fiber-rich fruits and greens, heart-healthy flaxseeds, plus one unique superfood: matcha. A green powder made from ground green tea leaves, matcha is loaded with antioxidants and may help tame inflammation and improve skin's appearance. P.S. each tasty pop is just 40 calories and is a perfect way to utilize any leftover fruits or veggies you have on hand.
