Matcha popsicles with coconut milk are here! Creamy and delicious matcha flavor all wrapped up in a refreshing, dairy-free popsicle.

I just love a matcha latte. The color, the mysteriously grassy yet somehow delicious flavor, and its so good for you too! But there’s so many other ways to enjoy matcha. Obviously popsicles, which we are talking about today but I’ve used it in buttercream and shortbread too and in both places it’s just delightful. I not only love these matcha popsicles because they are so tasty but they also only require 4 simple ingredients and one bowl, then pouring the mixture into popsicle molds. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze!


What you will need to make matcha popsicles



  • Matcha green tea powder: matcha powder is easy to buy online, but I also get the single serve packets at Trader Joes sometimes. Sprouts and Whole Foods usually sell it too.
  • Coconut milk: Use coconut milk rather than coconut cream. Coconut milk has the perfect consistency for these!
  • Oatmilk or any other milk you want to use ** see note
  • Agave nectar, or maple syrup would work too
  • Popsicle mold: This is the popsicle mold that I use and it has been good to me. I like the shape, the design and it does what it’s supposed to do.


**So you can use all coconut milk if you want to. When I made them with coconut milk only I felt like the coconut flavor was too strong and covering up the matcha. So see what you like. Adding in another alternative milk makes the popsicles slightly more icy but I didn’t mind that.


How to make matcha popsicles

As mentioned in the first paragraph, making these matcha popsicles is SO easy.


You will need to start by adding the matcha powder to the mixing bowl first. Then add the hot water and use a whisk to remove all the lumps. I finally got myself a matcha whisk and I am loving it! Its much more efficient at getting rid of the lumps. But a small regular whisk works too, even the back of a spoon will work!

Once you’ve de-lumped, add the coconut milk and agave. Now is a good time to taste the mixture and see if it is sweet enough for you. You may want to add more agave if you like things more sweet.


Once you get the taste where you want it, simply pour the matcha mixture into each popsicle mold. Fill each popsicle mold just below the top edge.

Place the lid over the popsicle molds and insert a popsicle stick into each mold. Once you’ve completed these steps, you are ready to freeze!


Since this is a thin batter, the sticks will not stay put and become crooked.


To fix this– set a timer for 30 minutes as soon as you put the popsicles in the freezer, then go in and push the popsicles sticks down to straighten them out. By now the popsicle mixture should be thick enough to keep the sticks in place.


You can also soak the popsicle sticks in water prior to making, but I can never seem to remember to do this!
