Cold Brew Ice Pops
2:30 P.M: The dreaded time of day when you just want to crawl under your desk and give up for the day. It’s the time of day when you reach for yet another cup of coffee and always seem to be craving something sweet. Enter The Cold Brew Ice Pop. This is the ultimate treat that will wake you up and simultaneously satisfy your cravings. All you need is an ice pop mold, a few simple ingredients, and a few hours to freeze and you’ll have yourself some delicious cold brew popsicles!
- 1 ½ cups cold brew
- ¾ cup cold water
- ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
- ¼ cup milk
- Whole coffee beans
- In a large measuring cup, mix together cold brew and cold water
- Pour half the mixture into a bowl, and keep the other half in the measuring cup
- To the cold brew in the bowl, mix in condensed milk and regular milk. Taste to make sure it is sweet enough for you.
- Pour the coffee-milk mixture into the ice pop mold, filling each one halfway. Place in the freezer for one hour.
- Insert popsicle sticks and then top off with the second coffee-water mixture. This is when you can drop in some whole coffee beans for some extra flavor.
- Freeze for another 2 hours, or until completely frozen.
This recipe will result in an ice pop that has a creamy, sweet taste on the top half with a black cold brew coffee taste on the bottom half. Just like with regular cold brew, these ice pops are totally customizable to fit your taste. You can add flavor with caramel or mocha syrups, take out the milk for a strong coffee flavor profile, or add milk to the entire mixture if you want the whole thing to be sweet!
