Coffee popsicles are, simply put, amazing! They taste like rich, creamy coffee ice cream. Skip a mug and have one for breakfast, or they’re a delightful dessert or snack on a warm or hot day. And this sophisticated popsicle is perfect for casual summer entertaining.
Coffee is delicious in all sorts of forms . . . .
- In a cozy mug with cream.
- Whipped to perfection inside a cake.
- Blended into a rich crunchy cookie.
- In a chocolatey brownie.
- Or in a frozen pie.
- And now a creamy coffee popsicle makes the list!
I’ve been perfecting all of my recipes with coffee for years, and this simple three-ingredient recipe is nothing short of dreamy.
So if you’re a coffee lover like me, you’re in for a truly scrumptious treat.
This recipe is fantastic because from it you can make popsicles, ice cubes and drinks.
- instant espresso powder (So technically, you could call these Espresso Popsicles. Espresso powder is made from darkly roasted coffee beans.)
- sweetened condensed milk
- milk (whole, low-fat or non-fat)
How to Make Creamy Coffee Popsicles
(More detailed instructions are in the recipe card below.)
– In a large pitcher (or bowl), combine espresso powder with sweetened condensed milk and regular milk. Whisk until smooth.
– Pour the mixture into 6 (4-ounce) popsicle molds and freeze overnight.
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
- When you want to release the popsicles from their molds, be sure to run them under hot water for a at least a few seconds. The sweetened condensed milk makes them a bit harder to release than fruit juice popsicles.
- My favorite instant espresso is Medaglia D’Oro. You can almost always find this (or other brands) at a large grocery store. If you can’t find it, you can substitute it with instant coffee, but use about 50% more so the flavor is as strong as the espresso powder.
- I’ve made these with both low-fat and non-fat milk, and both work well, so choose what you like.
If you’re a coffee lover, these coffee popsicles are a must to add to your collection.
