Iced Coffee Popsicles Recipe

How to make coffee popsicles.  This is an easy recipe with just three ingredients, and you can customize it with different flavors or even make a boozy coffee popsicles recipe.  This is a fun twist on iced coffee drinks, and it's the perfect summer treat for adults.

If you love coffee as much as I do, then you'll love these iced coffee popsicles.  I never thought I'd be an ice coffee fan, but it's my new afternoon pick me up of choice.

Cold coffee just didn't sound appetizing for me until last year.  It was hot, I didn't want pop or water, so I tried a cold coffee.

That was it.  I was hooked.

Then I learned how to make coffee popsicles.  Yum!  It's a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.  

As a bonus, you can make them and freeze them in another container, so you can make an assortment of flavors and have them ready when you want to enjoy iced coffee popsicles.

Iced Coffee Popsicles Recipe

While your kids are enjoying their popsicles in the afternoon, try cold brew coffee popsicles for a special treat for mom.  

What is the Best Store Bought Iced Coffee?

I usually make my own cold brew, but sometimes I buy it.  I really like Stok cold brew to make iced coffee drinks at home.

You can also use cold brewed coffee to make this coffee popsicles recipe.  However, hot brewed coffee will be more bitter than cold brew.  

Learn how to make Instant Pot coffee concentrate in a fraction of the time as cold brew.

For the best tasting iced coffee popsicles, I highly recommend using a cold brew coffee.

Can You Freeze Cold Brew Coffee?

Yes, you can freeze cold brew coffee.  It's great for making ice cubes for iced lattes without diluting the coffee.

However, as cold brew coffee popsicles, it won't taste the best.  You will need to add other things to it to make coffee popsicles.

How Do You Make Popsicles Creamy Not Icy?

Water freezes solid, like an ice cube.  To make creamy coffee popsicles, add a fat.  This changes the molecules and how they freeze, so you'll have a creamy popsicle.

The higher the fat, the more creamy the popsicle will be.  I recommend using a higher fat milk.  

However, if you are limiting fat or don't want to use a high fat milk, a lower fat milk will still yield a creamy popsicle.  It just won't be as creamy as say heavy whipping cream or half and half.

What Can I Use if I Don't Have a Popsicle Mold?

I make several kinds of homemade popsicles, so I have a silicone mold to make them.  However, you don't need a special mold.

You can use a paper cup to make cold brew coffee popsicles.  The paper will peel away for easy unmolding.

You can also use a silicone ice cube tray (I like this one for making big ice cubes or popsicles) or a muffin tins.  

If you eat a lot of yogurt, wash and save the containers to make this coffee popsicles recipe.

What Can I Use Instead of Popsicle Sticks for Popsicles?

Use plastic spoons!  They work great and are easy to find at most stores.

What is the Best Popsicle Mold?

This silicone popsicle mold has reusable sticks, so many people like it because it's zero waste.  I have two of this set.  I like the compact design, especially since I don't have a lot of storage space.  It also has a funnel and a cleaning brush.

We constantly lose our popsicle handles, so I really like this popsicle mold.  It's silicone and holds 10 pops at a time.  You can use wooden popsicle sticks, so if they get lost it's no big deal.  Just be sure to use food grade popsicle sticks with it.

I know these iced coffee popsicles are for adults, but let's face, you'll be using the molds to make other popsicles like these healthy strawberry chia seed popsicles and whole fruit popsicles for your kids. 

Kids will love these fun shaped popsicle molds.  To be honest, I wouldn't be upset eating iced coffee popsicles in these shapes.

How Do You Get Homemade Popsicles Out of the Mold?

Homemade popsicles can be tricky to unmold.  I recommend using silicone popsicle trays for your  coffee popsicles recipe.  

For easier unmolding, fill a bowl with warm water.  Dip the frozen coffee popsicles into the water for 30 seconds and then unmold.  Dip again if needed.

You can also let these cold brew coffee popsicles sit on the counter for 5 to 10 minutes.  They may melt too fast when you eat them, so eat quick.

How to Store Cold Brew Coffee Popsicles

These iced coffee popsicles will last about three months in the freezer.  When they are frozen, unmold them and place them in a freezer bag while still frozen.  

Iced Coffee Variations

These cold brew coffee popsicles are delicious and creamy on their own, but you can make some flavor variations.  Try one of these options:

  • Use flavored coffee creamer in place of the milk.
  • Use sweetened condensed milk in place of the milk and omit sugar.  Use sweetened condensed coconut milk for a dairy free option.
  • Use monk fruit, coconut sugar, or liquid stevia in place of the sugar for sugar free pops.
  • Replace half of the milk with Greek yogurt for a creamy coffee popsicle.
  • Add a two tablespoons of cocoa powder for mocha coffee popsicles.
  • Use almond milk or oat milk in place of the milk.  They won't be as creamy, but they will be dairy free.
