Mango Green Tea Pops
Recipe by Dana for Minimalist Baker

These vegan and gluten free Mango Green Tea pops pack a SERIOUSLY healthy punch because they’re made with matcha – which is green tea leaves ground into edible powder. Because the matcha is essentially undiluted green tea, your body can absorb 10 times more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than its liquid counterpart. Mixed with fresh mango, these creamy popsicles are the perfect refreshment on a hot summer day. Get the recipe at minimalistbaker.com.
