Looking for a quick fix for the sweltering heat? You can stop your search now with these easy 2-ingredients Red Bean Popsicles which I made with a Japanese twist! By the way, because of how simple the ingredients are here, these are also vegetarian friendly and suit the diets of many!

Constructing these Red Bean Popsicles are not only effortless, they’re pretty customisable too. In my case, I went with a Japanese twist by using Azuki Red Beans and to top it off with Matcha Powder. There are countless possibilities here for customisation, such as using chocolate hazelnut spread or even peanut butter.

Then, for the base of these Popsicles, I chose Coconut Milk that gives a subtle and lightly earthy flavour.

Additionally, you can also choose depending on whether you prefer to use the Azuki Red Beans as a design element or to mix everything together in a 1 to 1 ratio to create a solid colour gradient. I believe both are equally tasty and yummy!

The hardest part about these Red Bean Popsicles would most probably be freezing overnight. After you’ve assembled these delicious treats, you will have to wait at least 6 hours before they solidify. However, I can assure you that the results will be worth the wait!

Once you are ready, you can serve them with various toppings. Apart from matcha powder, I also discovered that lightly toasted coconut make for a good topping here for it’s light crunch and earthiness.

If you’ve any questions, feel free to refer to the video or you can let me know too!

Also, if you’ve other ideas of what will make a great flavour combination, I am all open to recommendations 🙂
