Beat the summer heat with this coffee popsicle recipe. With chocolate and milk this takes on the taste and texture of a mocha fudgsicle – so delicious!
We’ve been having a serious heat wave the past few weeks and I am loooooving it! I always joke that I have never been too hot, and while I call it a joke, I am actually pretty sure it is not a joke. BUT, just because I am thoroughly enjoying the hot weather doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy indulging in all the snacks to ‘beat the heat’…popsicles being one of them!
With Dan being such a coffee guy, it struck me that I should obviously try making a coffee popsicle. I experimented with 4 different recipes and this one here was by far my favourite. With the addition of condensed milk and chocolate in the end my coffee popsicle recipe wound up as a mocha fudgsicle…but I’m certainly not mad about it! The condensed milk gives it sweetness and a creamy texture like a fudgsicle which is delicious. This is the perfect afternoon pick me up and a great substitute for an afternoon coffee – get your caffeine and sugar fix all in one! An adult popsicle, who would’ve thought?!
The perfect afternoon pick me up on a hot summer day!
First prepare the coffee in your desired method. We actually opted for a coffee concentrate in the ratio of 1:11 coffee grinds to water (25g coffee, 275g water). If that level of precision isn't your thing, I tooootally understand! A regularly prepared coffee will work just fine 🙂
In a bowl combine all ingredients. Make sure your coffee is cooled first. Use a whisk to fully combine the ingredients. The cocoa powder is the most challenging ingredient to incorporate and the whisking may take a few minutes to dissolve it all!
Once fully combined, pour your mixture into your popsicle molds and place into the freezer until frozen (about 3-4 hours). If you are adding popsicle sticks (instead of toppers that come with the molds) you will need to add the sticks after about an hour and a half of freezing - before the mixture is solid but after it is too liquidy!
