The weather is still quite warm out there, and Kat and her friends are coming up with new ways to stay cool. Their latest idea is homemade popsicles. I love this idea! Of course, I had to create my own tea-infused twist. After much consideration, I decided that matcha would be the perfect tea to add to an icy popsicle. The sweet vegetal green tea flavor holds up to most ingredients, even those that are tangy and strong. After a little bit of experimentation, I came up with my new recipe! I’m so excited to share it with you. It combines our favorite matcha flavor with tangy lime and cooling mint.

Tippy’s Minty Matcha & Lime Popsicles

2 cups hot water

1 lime- juiced and zested

Prepare your matcha by whisking together the tea and hot water. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Mix in your lime juice and 2 tsp of lime zest. Add 3 tbsp of simple syrup and taste. If it’s not sweet enough keep adding by the tablespoon until you are satisfied. Roughly chop mint leaves and drop a few into the ice pop molds.

Pour in the matcha mixture, and pop on your tops. Pop in the freezer until the pops are fully formed. If you are using wooden sticks, freeze the mixture for about 60 minutes, pop in sticks, and return to the freezer. That way the sticks will stand straight up!

These icy cold treats have a strong matcha flavor with the refreshing blend of lime and mint. Dearies I hope you love my icy matcha popsicles! They’re sure to be a hit at your next outdoor gathering. Or keep them all for yourself! Kat plans on making these as long as the weather stays warm to enjoy a cooling moment any time of day.
