So, this is one of those “why the hell didn’t I try this sooner?” things. Canned coffee (in this case, a La Colombe draft mocha, which is equivalent to 2.25 c of coffee), cut down with a bit of milk and vanilla extract, and add some good Oreos (I had leftover peppermint bark version from winter), and put in popsicle molds, and you have a reasonably caffeinated popsicle. And popsicle molds are going on sale around this time of year too, so you can easily make these pretty cheap.
Makes 10-12 popsicles
- 12 oz milk
- 1 can (9 oz) La Colombe draft mocha
- .25 c sugar
- 1.5 t vanilla extract
- 18ish Oreo-type cookies
Stir together the draft mocha, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract (pic 2). Take your Oreos, put them in a plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling pin (pic 3). Stir them into the milk mixture (pic 4).
Then, pour the milk mixture into the popsicle molds (pic 5), and freeze. And then, enjoy your caffeinated popsicle (pic 6)!
