These are everything they’re cracked up to be. Luscious, green, and totally good for you. Plus, they’re caffeinated, so that’s always a bonus… so long as you’re not craving one at midnight.
Things have been stupid busy for us. Jeremy got a new job (yay!) and we are thrilled to say that Milo has finally kicked his allergies to the curb (double yay!), and is now one very happy dog – thus in turn making us two very happy owners.
The mini heatwave we experienced in Vancouver has finally subsided, but that hasn’t slowed us down from making frozen desserts en masse. Let’s face it, we consume them as fast as they’re made, so we’ve been getting a little addicted to frozen-anything-on-a-stick. Because aren’t popsicles like, the best part about summer? I would argue yes. Well, that and day-time drinking on the beach. Oh, and hot shirtless boys. Top three.
We received some samples of matcha green tea powder from Kiss Me Organics, who produce nutrient-packed matcha powder that is culinary grade, and USDA Organic. We found their matcha powder both smooth and fresh, and it tastes great on its own as a glass of tea – but even better in these tangy matcha yogurt pops!
We’ve got a bag of Kiss Me Organics Matcha Powder up for grabs, guys! All you need to do is leave a comment below telling us your favorite way to stay cool during the summer heat.
