Mango Green Tea Pops

Mango Green Tea Pops! Healthy, 4 ingredients, naturally sweetened and SO creamy and delicious! #vegan #glutenfree

Last summer I struck a serious love affair with mangos. They’re so creamy, satisfying and naturally sweet (and super healthy), and lend themselves perfectly to smoothies, sorbet and popsicles!

Mango Green Tea Pop Ingredients! 4 ingredient bliss

Yep, it’s about that time. Summer is almost here and it already feels like it in the Midwest. I’ve already started setting my alarm to get up early so I can squeeze in my morning walk/run without burning up.

Around this time I start craving cold things in the morning like cereal and smoothies. And in the afternoon? Ice cream and popsicles is the way to go.

Mango Popsicles!

This recipe is super simple, requiring just 30 minutes and 5 ingredients! Mango, matcha green tea powder, coconut milk, agave (or sweetener or choice) and lemon juice.

If you don’t have a popsicle mold, just use my dixie cup and wooden spoon method (works like a charm).

If you’ve never experienced matcha you’re missing out. It’s basically green tea on steroids because it’s green tea leaves ground into edible powder.  Hiiii-ya!

When ingested straight instead of diluted tea form, you’re getting more than 10 times the vitamins, minerals, and cancer-fighting antioxidants green tea provides.

NOTE: Not all matcha is created equal! In my experience, the more vibrant the green hue the better. I found this extensive review by Healthy Happy Life extremely insightful. Check it out if you’re in the market for some matcha this summer.

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
Ingredients
  • Green Tea Layer
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 2/3 cup full fat (or light) coconut milk
  • 2-3 tsp agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • Mango Layer
  • 1 cup fresh mango, cubed
  • 1/4 cup full fat or light coconut milk
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Instructions
  1. Depending on which layer you want on the top of the popsicle, prepare that first. I went with green tea.
  2. Add coconut milk, matcha powder and agave to blender and blend until smooth. Divide evenly between popsicle molds – mine makes 6 small pops, so adjust as needed.
  3. Pop in the freezer to set briefly while you prepare the next layer. This will help them form two distinguished layers that don’t run together.
  4. Rinse out blender and add mango, coconut milk and lemon juice. Blend until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
  5. Pour over the green tea layer, tap to remove air bubbles, and gently insert popsicles sticks. Freeze for at least a few hours or until completely set.
  6. Remove from molds and enjoy! Store extras in a freezer-safe bag for up to a couple weeks, though best when fresh.
Notes
*Nutrition information reflects one of 6 popsicles made with full fat coconut milk. For a lighter option use light coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk.

    So excited to try this recipe as I love mangos especially the ones from Mexico. Need to order the matcha green tea so I’m ready to go. Thanks for posting!!

  2. says

    Woah this(and the healthy happy life review) came just at the right time: I just started to look into matcha in a serious manner.
    I wanted to make matcha latte really bad, so I bought some cheap, sweetened variant at my local asian grocery store.
    It was the only one they carried unfortantely. I’ll splurge on some good stuff next month.

    These popsicles look absolutely delicious! Do you think I can use frozen mango? Mango season is over in my country…
    By the way found your blog through Jess Lively’s show, really loved your interview!

    • Dana Shultz says

      Yes! You can use frozen mango. It may require a bit more coconut milk. Glad you found us through Jess! Love her show!

      • says

        Thank you Dana for your answer! I will try to make some very soon to enjoy our warm autumn.
        Jess’s show is so interesting, and what you’ve shared and your ideas have really resonated with me!

    i want to try this, i have organic (very vibrant green) matcha at home, but its SO bitter! i only put it in hot choc when im on my period. do you taste the matcha in this recipe? if not what purpose does it serve? thanks

    • Dana Shultz says

      It’s mainly for color, nutrition and taste. But if you don’t like it, just leave it out! I find it to be very subtle. You could also just use less…

    • Dana Shultz says

      You’ll love matcha. You can add it to smoothies, tea lattes and even baked goods. Just be sure to look at the review from Healthy Happy Life to determine a quality brand!

      • Payal says

        Which brand do you use please? I have used a couple of different varieties and am looking on more suggestions on a brand. Do you recall which brand you used here?

        • Dana Shultz says

          I don’t recall! I’m so sorry. I removed it from the package and don’t remember what the name was.

  5. Sara says

    These look delicious and I love mangos! Unfortunately, I’m allergic. Any suggested substitutions? Strawberries won’t give the same creaminess… I’m at a loss and I want to eat these so badly!!

  6. brenda says

    Made me think of Cabo and how they sprinkle red Chile spice on their mangoes. Sounds like a sprinkle in the pureed mango
    Might heighten the flavor with a zing. Thanks for your recipe.
