I combined matcha along with lychee, a tropical fruit that grows in South Asia. The coconut milk and cashews provide the creaminess for this vegan dessert.

Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients

Yield: 4 Popsicles (4 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Blender, 4 popsicle mold, saucepan
  • ½ cup cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • ½ can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp matcha/green tea powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup lychees, peeled and de-seeded
  • ¼ cup vegan white chocolate
Recipe Directions

Directions

  • Drain the cashews from the water and place the cashews into a blender. Add to the blender the coconut milk, match/green tea powder, maple syrup, and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  • If you are using a horizontal mold, insert the popsicle stick, and then pour the mixture into the mold. If you are using a vertical mold, pour the mixture into the mold and then freeze for 30 minutes. After that time has passed, you can insert the popsicle stick and it will now stay in place as it freezers. Place the mold back into the freezer. While pouring the mixture into the molds, place pieces of the lychees into the popsicle mixture before freezing.
  • Freezing the popsicles takes about 3-4 hours. After this time has passed, melt the white chocolate in a saucepan and take off the heat when done.
  • Carefully remove the popsicles from the molds and drizzle the melted chocolate over the popsicles. They are now ready to serve, enjoy!

Tips, Suggestions, Photos, & More Information

Matcha is a variation of green tea which had its origin in China but was brought and adapted widely in Japan. I combined matcha along with lychee, a tropical fruit that grows in South Asia. The coconut milk and cashews provide the creaminess for this vegan dessert. Fun tip: Add some lychee pieces while making the popsicle and they will give you a natural jelly texture minus the refined sugar.
