Happy Friday + From the Kitchen: Coffee Ice Pops

June 8, 2012

Happy Friday! Wow, this week just seemed to fly right by…the complete opposite of how last week seemed to feel. So, what are your plans for the weekend? I’m looking forward to working on a few art projects that I’ve had on hold for a while and playing with a few new recipes. And speaking of recipes, I’d like to leave you with this tasty recipe for Coffee Ice Pops- creamy, rich, and icy cold…a perfect treat for a warm weekend. xoxo!

Coffee Popsicles

Makes about 10, depending on the size of your molds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups extra-strong coffee
  • 2/3 cup half & half (sweetened optional)
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar

Directions

1. Mix the coffee with half & half. Taste, and add a bit more milk, if desired.

2. Pour into popsicle molds about 3/4th’s full and freeze for 1-2 hours.

3. Meanwhile, mix the heavy cream and confectioners sugar.

4. Top coffee with heavy cream, insert sticks and freeze until solid. Voila!

      that’s what I’m thinking! The summer is starting to heat up, and hot coffee doesn’t always seem fitting.

    YUM. It rarely reaches 72 degrees in August here in maritime PNW, but I don’t need an excuse to make and eat these. Thanks for posting! :P

    Sounds amazing! I love coffee ice cream and was actually thinking about how I hadn’t had it in awhile just the other day. Maybe instead of buying Haagan Dazs, I’ll make these :)
