On a hot summer’s day, nothing’s better than enjoying your favourite summer treats with your friends at the beach, or a picnic in the park.
And another reason we love summer is that it’s also blueberry season! These juicy blue gems are well loved for their taste and rich nutrient and antioxidant content. Blueberries help to fight aging and cancer, boost digestion, care for your heart and even give you skincare and weight loss benefits.
As we’re planning for a healthy 2017 at Kenko Tea, let’s skip the ice cream trucks and move straight for the Matcha Green Tea Blueberry Popsicles from the lovely Cherie Tu aka @thrivingonplants.

Green Tea Matcha Blueberry Popsicles
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 2 tbsp + ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 can coconut milk
1 tbsp Kenko Matcha (Use less for more subtle taste. Unless you like strong matcha taste, I recommend not to add more than 1 tbsp)
Add blueberries, 2 tbsp maple syrup & lemon juice into a saucepan.
Simmer on low-medium heat for 5 mins until the blueberries soften (You can pop them beforehand, otherwise leave them whole)
- Remove from heat and leave aside to cool.
Blend coconut milk, matcha & ¼ cup maple syrup until smooth.
- Spoon the cooled blueberry mix into the bottom of the popsicle moulds.
- Add in the matcha mixture on top of the blueberry mix.
- Freeze overnight & Enjoy whenever you wish!!!
Ta-da! These gorgeous green-blue beauties will surely brighten up your beach trip! Below is the video of the recipe for you to enjoy as well.
