I’ve got to say that popsicle molds have changed the way I look at frozen desserts as a whole. With these popsicle molds, you can take everything you love about yogurt and matcha desserts and make it portable. Meaning there is always time for dessert!
Though popsicles can be a game-changer on a hot day, they’re nice to have in the freezer year-round. When you make these matcha green tea yogurt popss, you get so much more than a sweet treat. You also get a slew of matcha benefits such as antioxidants that support your immune system, a kick of energy, and a ton vitamins and minerals that help you feel better throughout the entire day.
As far as matcha desserts go, these matcha green tea yogurt pops are one of my favorite recipes.
The mochi bits in these matcha yogurt pops add a sweet and chewy texture that makes your mouth water. Mochi is a Japanese rice cake that is used in both dinners and desserts. It’s chewy, sweet, and malleable taste makes it a favored ingredient in matcha desserts.
If you have all the ingredients already, you can have these green tea yogurt pops in the freezer in less than five minutes. They’re great for parties and better for storing in the freezer.
