Author Notes: I refuse to let this summer go—and thankfully, New York City’s weather has been pretty cooperative as of late. Make these funky, subtly sweet popsicles as an act of defiance; I’ll be eating mine on the roof, in my shorts, with a Michelada, sticking my tongue out at anyone who brings up fall. —Kendra Vaculin
Makes: 4 pops
teaspoons matcha powder
3 to 4
tablespoons agave nectar
teaspoon vanilla extract
cups unsweetened almond milk (alternatively, use sweetened vanilla almond milk and skip the agave and vanilla extract)
cup chia seeds
- Whisk matcha powder, agave, and vanilla extract into the almond milk in a medium bowl. Mix in the chia seeds. Place bowl into the fridge to hang out for 1 hour, so the seeds chia-fy (the mixture should get thicker and more gelatinous).
- ZOOM: An hour has passed and now you have dino egg green chia glop in a bowl! Mix it up with a spoon to unclump the bigger bits. Divide the mixture between 4 molds. Wedge a wooden stick into each mold (the mixture will be thick enough that the stick will stand on it’s own). Freeze for three hours or overnight.
- Unmold and eat for breakfast because you can’t wait.
