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!
