Dairy-free Matcha Blueberry Popsicles

Summer surely is the greatest time of the year to be outdoor. Nothing can be better than enjoying your favourite summer treats with your friends at the beach or at picnic in the park, don’t you agree?

Now another reason we love summer is that it’s also the season of blueberries! You can find blueberries everywhere this time of the year. They are in fact the second most popular ones among all the berries, obviously after the strawberries.

These juicy blue gems are well loved for their taste and the amazing health benefits with their rich content of nutrients and antioxidants. They helps fight aging and cancer, boost digestion and heart healths, and benefits in skincare and weight loss.

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 this summer.

  2. Simmer on low-medium heat for 5 mins until the blueberries soften (You can pop them beforehand, otherwise leave them whole)

  4. Blend coconut milk, matcha & ¼ cup maple syrup until smooth.
  5. Spoon the cooled blueberry mix into the bottom of the popsicle moulds.
