We prepared these tasty & healthy green tea treats in three funways to help us enjoy the summer in a low calorie but yummy fashion:
Popsicles, dibs, and regular pudding
The whole recipe is under only 200 calories and it is made from all natural ingredients.
The green food coloring is made from fresh spinach leaves and the green tea flavor is from freshly brewed green tea.
If you have matcha green tea on hand, then you can brew matcha green tea and ditch the spinach green food coloring.
You can eat the whole thing in one go if you would like and you don't have to prepare all three forms of the green tea pudding.
