The weather is starting to heat up in Los Angeles, and I love it! As a kid, one of my favorite snacks to eat on a hot summer’s day was a popsicle. Now that I’m “adulting,” I’ve decided to create my own creamy matcha flavor popsicle packed with blended banana and 1% low fat milk so I can have a pick me up with some vitamins and a bit of protein. Check out the easy recipe below.

**The recipe below is my own and partnered with GotMilk? with this sponsorship
Matcha Flavor Popsicle
- 2 cups of Lactose 1% Fat Milk
- 2 tsp of Matcha powder
- 1/2 tbsp. of guar gum (thickener)
- 1 cup of ripened bananas (1.5 – 2 small banana)
- 3 packets of stevia (optional)
Place all ingredients into a blender, except the guar gum
Slowly mix it the guar gum a few sprinkles at a time while blending in between. This will reduce the chances of the guar gum (which thickens like a corn starch) from clumping. The guar gum will help make the popsicle more creamy.
Pour the mixture into the 6 popsicle containers
Place the popsicle tray into the freezer for 6-8 hours
Once frozen, run it under hot water for 20 sec before pulling the popsicle out of the plastic cover to keep the shape of your delicious frozen snack.
Heyy darling!! This is amazing! I’m so proud of you!! Good one for those heated days! And what’s even more amazing is how you were able to develop a healthy popsicle. Too bad there’s no dairy in my diet plan! But when I come visit, I’ll give it a try! Love you! ♥️
