Iced Coffee Popsicles? Yes, Please!

Whether you’re looking for your morning caffeine fix, or a mid-day cool-down, we’ve got exactly what you need! Why drink your coffee from a cup when you can eat it like ice cream?

 

Guidelines

Before you break out the ice molds, here are a few tips to ensure that your frosty treats turn out fabulous every time!

First, if you can, use cold-brew coffee. This type of coffee responds better to freezing than hot-brewed coffee that’s been chilled. Strong coffee is key because it holds flavor better than average strength coffee after it’s frozen. Another consideration: it’s better to refrigerate your coffee popsicles right before you freeze them. This cuts down on freezing time and will give your popsicles the best texture.

 

Coconut Milk Iced Coffee Popsicles: Frozen Chunk of Tropical Twist

What to Buy

  • Coconut Milk
  • Cold brew coffee (make beforehand)
  • Coffee of your choice
  • Powdered sugar, agave, honey, simple syrup, or any sweetener that easily dissolves
  • Popsicle tray
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Coconut shreds

How to Make

Pour one-part coconut milk with two parts iced coffee into a container for mixing. Whisk them together and sweeten to taste. (If you want to get fancy, put any other liquid or easily dissolvable flavoring in with it too!) Refrigerate until cold, pour the liquid into a popsicle tray, add popsicle sticks, and then freeze! Once the popsicles are frozen, take them out of the tray, brush them with syrup or honey, roll them in coconut shreds, and serve! Another way to add the coconut shreds is to add them to the popsicle before it freezes…but keep in mind that this will make the texture of the popsicle much rougher.

  • Chocolate chips (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)

How to Make

Who said “vanilla means ordinary”? This lovely pop is anything but ordinary, with your morning cup of Joe, and your evening dessert all poured into one! Pour one-part strong iced coffee and one part softened vanilla ice cream into a container and mix them with a whisk.

Mocha Iced Coffee Popsicles: The Heavenly Hybrid of Chocolate and Coffee

What to Buy

  • Cold brew coffee (make beforehand)
  • Cocoa powder or cocoa mix
  • Popsicle tray
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Honey
  • Milk, cream, or half and half

How to Make

If you love chocolate, coffee and popsicles, this is the treat for you! First, make homemade hot cocoa. Heat milk, half-and-half, or cream until very warm  (milk will have the thinnest consistency and cream will have the thickest). Pour the heated liquid (whichever you’ve chosen) over one-part cocoa powder. Then, add two parts sugar, and stir well with a whisk. Let the cocoa cool. Then, add two parts strong iced coffee to the one-part homemade hot cocoa, stir with a whisk again, then allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

After that, pour it into the popsicle tray, pop a stick in each soon-to-be popsicle, refrigerate the tray until it turns cold, then freeze it. For an extra bit of sweetness, before you serve the pops, you can drizzle them with a bit of honey and sprinkle sweet cocoa powder (or hot chocolate mix) onto the popsicles.

 

Almond Milk Iced Coffee Popsicles: Nothin’ Nutty About It!

Almond and Coffee: Oh What a Beautiful Pair!

Almond and Coffee: Oh What a Beautiful Pair!

What to Buy

  • Cold brew coffee (make beforehand)
  • Coca powder or coca mix
  • Popsicle tray
  • Popsicle sticks

 

How to Make

Mix a 1:1 ratio of strong iced coffee to unsweetened almond milk (or sweetened almond milk, if you like an extra sugary kick). Then, add sugar to sweeten until it tastes just right. If you’d like a little extra excitement, add a drop of vanilla extract…but use it sparingly, otherwise your popsicles will taste like you’ve spiked them with alcohol! Then, whisk that yummy mixture up and let it cool in the fridge. When it’s cold, transfer it to the freezer, add popsicle sticks and wait.

Before serving the pops, brush them with cooled simple syrup and coat them in slivered almonds. If you want to make your pops even more interesting, drizzle them with chocolate syrup on top of the almonds! Who could say no to that?!
