Made with creamy vanilla yoghurt and antioxidant-packed matcha, these healthy vanilla matcha latte popsicles are the perfect treat for anytime of the day!
Serves: 5 Zip Pops
1½ cups vanilla yoghurt (Greek or normal is fine)
1½ - 2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup milk (any kind of milk will work)
½ tablespoon matcha powder
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together yoghurt, 1½ tablespoons honey and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add milk to the yoghurt mixture, and sift in matcha powder. Whisk again until the matcha is dissolved and the mixture turns a lovely light green color.
Ensure the mixture is of a pourable consistency in order to easily pour into the small opening of the Zip Pop moulds. You may need to add a little more milk to thin it out, depending on the thickness of your yoghurt mixture.
Taste the mixture, and add a little more honey, if desired.
Using a funnel, pour the mixture into the Zip Pop moulds up to the white fill line. Freeze the moulds upright in the freezer for 4-6 hours. Once frozen, you can lay the popsicles flat for storage.
* You can make this recipe vegan by omitting the yoghurt, honey and milk. Simply replace the yoghurt with an equal amount of your choice of milk - coconut, almond, etc. Replace the honey with maple syrup, or your choice of sweetener. Omit the ¼ cup milk in the recipe entirely. Note that using different milk and sweeteners will result in a different taste than my recipe intended, but it should still taste nice. Be sure to taste and adjust the mixture before pouring into popsicle moulds.
* You can use any type of yoghurt you like in this recipe. The thicker and creamier, the better. Be sure to taste the mixture before freezing and adjust the amount of honey, vanilla and/or matcha as desired.
* This recipe only makes 5 Zip Pops, but you can easily double all of the ingredients to make an extra 5 popsicles.
