A healthy frozen matcha treat! These creamsicles are naturally sweetened with bananas and maple syrup and are extra creamy from the avocado and coconut milk! Gluten-free and vegan.

I’ve been dying to make some kind of popsicles for quite a while now, but I have been waiting for the right recipe idea to strike… Then Suncore Foods launched their Premium Midori Jade Matcha Supercolor Powder and I knew it was time to bust out the popsicle mold I bought last summer (that I haven’t yet used). We’ve been having some pretty nice weather here in Ohio- so it was definitly Mother Nature pretty much begging me to make them asap!
These Avocado Banana Matcha Creamsicles are creamy and dreamy and represent all things summery. They are made with only 6 simple ingredients and other than needing to freeze before enjoying, they take about 5 minutes to blend and pour into your popsicle molds!
I’ve become quite smitten with matcha over the last year or so. It’s super trendy right now, and for reasons other than it makes the best warming, comforting frothy latte. As we head into the warmer months, I find myself drinking less warm beverages, naturally, but am not quite ready to pack my matcha powder away until the fall- so I started brainstorming on some summer friendly recipes. I am proud to report these super easy, super delicious Avocado Banana Matcha Creamsicles will defintly be stocked in my freezer this summer!
Now let’s talk a little bit more about matcha powder, shall we? I’m sure you have seen Matcha lattes offered at your local coffee shop and have seen it all over your Pinterest feed, but what is it and why is everyone so obsessed with this amazingly vibrant green powder? Well for one, matcha is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. This popular powder can also offer health benefits such as boosting immunity, improving metabolism, relaxing the body, calming the mind, and reducing cholesterol and blood pressure levels.*
So, what makes these creamsicles the treat to beat this summer? Good, healthy fats meets naturally sweetened meets superfood green goddess!

If you’re like my hubby, you might be a little bit curious about putting avocado in a creamsicle… but he was pleasantly surprised and now he can’t get enough! It’s kind of like the avocado chocolate cake craze (and if you haven’t tried that, I urge you to- delish!).
So transform your love for matcha latte into frozen form and pack your body with all kinds of healthy goodness this summer! I hope you love these Avocado Banana Matcha Creamsicles as much as my family and I do! Don’t forget to comment below and tag me on Instagram and Facebook if you make these!
