Double Shot Espresso Popsicle Recipe

Double Shot Espresso PopsicleHow do you take your espresso?

In a cozy mug with cream? Whipped to perfection inside of cake?  Blended into a rich, crunchy cookie? Mixed with Kahlùa?  Flavoring a chocolaty brownie? In a truffle?  In a frozen pie?

I’ll take it in any of the aforementioned forms, because any which way it’s presented, espresso is one of my favorite flavors on the planet!

And today I’m happy to add “in a creamy popsicle” to my list!

I encourage you to make these quick and easy popsicles at some point this summer.  I served them at a casual, outdoor brunch over the weekend and they were extremely well received.

Double Shot Espresso Popsicle Recipe
Prep time
Total time
Please note that all but 10 minutes of the prep time is freezing time.
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3-1/2 tablespoons instant espresso powder (I like Medaglia D'Oro)
  • ½ cup crushed, chocolate covered espresso beans (optional)
  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk the sweetened condensed milk with the milk and espresso powder.
  2. If you're using the chocolate covered espresso beans, crush them by adding them to a heavy-duty, zip-lock bag, sealing it, and using a meat mallet or the bottom of a small, heavy-bottomed sauté pan to crush them. Then stir them to the milk-espresso mixture.
  3. Divide the mixture among 6 (4-ounce) popsicle molds and freeze until solid, about 6 hours.

      Thank you, Colette! I actually meant for them to be evenly distributed throughout the popsicle, but I love that first bite of “candy.” 🙂

    I feel like Greg and I need to start a support group for non coffee drinkers! But, like him, I would eat these in a heartbeat! Makes me wonder if they would work for cocoa, too! Happy weekend!

      David, you could add a few tablespoons of melted, unsweetened chocolate instead of the espresso — and use mini choc chips instead of the espresso beans. Yum! (Do you drink tea?) 🙂
