Coffee Popsicles

中文菜谱: 咖啡冰棍

Hot, hot and very hot!  That is how I feel these days when summer is here in Texas.  I literally crave for frozen treats every single day.  So I am happy to make different kinds of popsicles every day.

This batch is coffee flavor, which is made with freshly ground and pumped espresso shots.  There is a strong, intense but smooth coffee flavor because of that.  Dripped or pot brewed coffee can be used here too, but the flavor and taste would not be as good though.


4 to 6 shots of espresso
1 1/2 whole milk
1/2 to 2/3 cup condensed sweetened milk (or adjust the amount to taste)
1 teaspoon coffee rum liquor


Make the espresso shots with espresso machine

Repeat the process until there are 6 to 8 shots of espresso coffee

Add espresso, milk, condensed milk, and coffee rum liquor in a medium bowl or cup.  Whisk until well blended. 

Pour the mixture to a popsicle mold

Cover with popsicle’s lid and insert popsicle sticks

Add a flat plate to the top so that these popsicle sticks will stay in place.

Freeze for 4 to 6 hours or until firm. 

Ready to be unmolded

Unmold all popsicles and wrap them up individually so that I don’t have to pick a fight with the popsicle mold every time I want to enjoy a popsicle O(∩_∩)O~

Oh, what a pleasant treat in a hot summer day!
