An original recipe prepared for us by Spice & Sprout.

Ingredients

    Creamsicles

    • 1 400ml can coconut cream
    • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
    • 2 tbsp cashew butter
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 2 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
    • Pinch of salt
    • Melted chocolate (to drizzle)

    Strawberry Jam

    • 2 cups quartered strawberries
    • Juice of half a lemon
    • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar

Directions

    Creamsicles

    1. In a small saucepan over medium heat whisk together the coconut cream, honey, and vanilla.
    2. Whisk until simmering and smooth (the cashew butter should be melted and incorporated).
    3. Sift in the matcha (sifting is crucial for avoiding clumps of powder) and add the salt.
    4. Whisk to combine and remove from heat.
    5. Let cool slightly and then pour into your popsicle molds.
    6. Freeze for 1 hour and then remove and swirl in the jam. (About 1 tbsp per bar swirled with a knife)
    7. Freeze for another 3 – 6 hours, drizzle with chocolate and enjoy!

    Strawberry Jam

    1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring the juices to a boil, stirring often.
    2. Reduce to a rapid simmer and let cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The strawberries should have disintegrated into a jam-like consistency.
    3. Transfer to a glass jar and let cool before refrigerating.
