Matcha green tea icypoles (popsicle) recipe with chocolate and avocado

Matcha Avocado Green Tea Popsicles (Icypoles) with Chocolate

This week we are featuring two of my favourite matcha recipe creators - Emily and Deeni from The Peachy Pear. I've been following Emily and Deeni on Instagram for a while now and their amazingly colourful recipes always blow my mind. Their amazing matcha green tea popsicle recipe (or matcha icypoles for us Australians) looked so good I had to include it as a Matcha recipe of the week here at Kenko Tea.

Who is behind The Peachy Pear?

Besides creating Amazing healthy and colourful recipes constantly - they are none other than Emily and Deeni! Two university students from Adelaide. Sharing their passion for healthy, plant based living through our colourful creations. Super Awesome! 

Their matcha green tea ice block recipe is packed full of healthy fats from the avocado, chia seeds and coconut, and full of nutrients and antioxidants from the Matcha green tea and Cacao - Awesome sauce!

It is also Raw, vegan, gluten free and easy to make :)

Matcha Chocolate Icypoles (Popsicles) with Mint, Coconut & Avocado

Ingredients

Ice-blocks (makes about 6)

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup rice milk (or any other plant-based milk)
  • 1 - 2 tsp matcha powder (depending on how strong you like it!)
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp coconut water (we used Natural Raw C)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

Cacao-Choc Sauce

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Method

  1. Blend together all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle moulds and place in freezer overnight or until completely set
  3. In the morning remove from moulds (you may need to run some warm water over them so they come out) and set aside.
  4. For the cacao-choc sauce, mix all ingredients together so that there are no lumps. If you are finding it difficult you may need to place the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat to achieve a smooth texture.
  5. Drizzle the tips of each popsicle with the choc. sauce (and any other toppings you like! You could add desiccated coconut, nuts, goji berries etc.)

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.

Wow!

Delicious. Love this matcha 🍵, excellent quality and the service is second to none. 10/10
