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 theMatcha Green Tea Blueberry Popsicles from the lovely Cherie Tu aka @thrivingonplants.

The popsicles are super simple and quick to make, so slap them together now in preparation for that last minute beach trip.

Green Tea Matcha Blueberry Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp + ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tbspKenko Matcha (Use less for more subtle taste. Unless you like strong matcha taste, I recommend not to add more than 1 tbsp)

Method

  1. Add blueberries,2 tbsp maple syrup & lemon juice into a saucepan.
  2. Simmer on low-medium heat for 5 mins until the blueberries soften(You can pop them beforehand, otherwise leave them whole)
  3. Remove from heat and leave aside to cool.
  4. Blend coconut milk, matcha &¼ cup maple syrup until smooth.
  5. Spoon the cooled blueberry mix into the bottom of the popsicle moulds.
  6. Add in the matcha mixture on top of the blueberry mix.
  7. 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.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
