Feel free to use whatever sweetener you enjoy the most. To keep this recipe low-carb, we used stevia or monk fruit. However, some people prefer this with honey or maple syrup.
You can also add in chia seeds and/or coconut flakes to add more fiber and healthy fats. You can also mix in some lemon, lime or orange juice for a citrus twist if you like. You can also add in a scoop or two of a high quality protein powder if you want more protein. I like the Bone Broth Power protein here.
Dr Jockers Comments
This matcha coconut popsicles recipe is full of antioxidants and healthy fats and can be a cool and refreshing treat on a hot summer day. This recipe does have a small amount of natural caffeine from the green tea so enjoy them earlier in the day and take this into account if giving it to children.
Coconut milk provides healthy medium chain fats that help improve insulin and blood sugar levels and stimulate fat burning. Matcha green tea is full of powerful polyphenolic antioxidants including the catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).
Researchers have found that matcha tea can have as much as ten times the amount of antioxidant compounds as a standard brewed green tea. I always recommend getting a high quality organic matcha green tea like this one here as the non-organic brands may have pesticide and herbicide residue on them.
