Vanilla Coffee Cream Popsicles

by Her Happy Balance on June 30, 2015

Honestly, Philadelphia has been unseasonably hot this June. The kind of hot where you sweat just sitting still, even in the shade. The kind of hot where you just cannot bear to turn your blow-dryer on because you know that it’ll make you immediately start to sweat after just taking a shower. The kind of hot that has caused crazy lightning and thunder-filled storms to dump buckets of rain at the drop of a dime. Yeah, it’s hot outside.

So what’s a girl to do when she’s got a sweet tooth craving to fulfill but she can’t turn the oven on because it’s just so blasted hot? Quench that craving with a homemade popsicle, of course!

These refreshing treats were super easy to make – the most difficult part was waiting for the pops to freeze! They’re basically a lightened up version of coffee ice cream…on a stick. And who doesn’t love coffee ice cream?! My dad likes to tell me that he used to love coffee ice cream as a little kid even though he didn’t prefer the taste of actual coffee. So I’m convinced even the pickiest palettes like it.

Coffee cream pops with a bite

Plus it’s a great way to use up that last little bit of extra coffee hanging around in the pot without wasting it. So what are you waiting for?! Blend up these babies and pop ‘em in the freezer. And make sure to really savor and enjoy those 5 minutes of pure cool bliss as you eat your creamy, coffee treat.
