I love coffee in all forms, especially my first cup of coffee each morning! With it being summer, the temps are rising and come mid-afternoon when I would normally grab another cup of hot coffee, it is just too warm out to enjoy.That is why I have been dreaming of a frozen coffee treat for a while now. It has taken me a few mishaps to create a delicious combination but I believe I have finally created a wonderful frozen Mocha Pop all while enjoying the benefits of almondmilk.
I found 2 new almondmilk blends at Safeway and let me tell you, Hubs was super excited! He loves almondmilk, so I figured he would like both the Almond Coconut Blend and the AlmondMilk Protein + Fiber. Which is also why I had to make them off limits until I could make my Mocha Pops, I was not sure how they would turn out since the first attempts with other products did not turn out well. I knew I needed more than 1 try.
Funniest part about it, I did not need more than one try. They turned out delicious the first time! Although I did not get a good photograph until my 3rd batch. What can I say, these were too delicious to keep in the house!
Now for the recipe, which is simple and you can change it up depending on how you like your coffee!
- 8 chocolate covered coffee beans
- 1.5 cups brewed coffee – chilled
- 1/4 cup + a smidgen of AlmondMilk, I used Silk Almond Coconut Blend (unsweetened)
- Highly technical term (smidgen) and measurement but it was just a bit over 1/4 cup but not 1/2
- 1 tbs unsweetened baking cocoa
Step 1: Smash the chocolate covered coffee beans to smithereens. I accomplished this in my food processor, but a coffee grinder would work too on a cool day. It does not need to be pretty just make it into little bits. That is important. These of course are completely optional, if you choose to leave them out you may want to add a tablespoon of sweetener.
Step 2: Throw everything else into the food processor or blender and mix well.
Step 3: Pour into popsicle molds, or baggies and freeze throughly. Mine took about an hour to be really frozen since everything was cold going into the freezer.
Step 4: Prepare to enjoy cold delicious Mocha Pops made with the benefits of almondmilk.
