Thankfully my sister turned me on to this amazing foodie blog that I am loving! This post about making home made Frappuccinos from coffee ice cubes got me thinking... Jon and I love coffee, and I have always had a strong nostalgia for homemade freezer icey molds being that I was practically raised on these in the summers, growing up in Jersey as a child.
Seriously... even just the empty cups make me think of the care free summers as a kid. Love it....
So I made up about 4 cups of coffee, mixed in about 1 cup of milk, a bit of natural brown sugar, roughly 4 tbsp into the whole batch. Blended with a milk frother. (I think it would have been the same consistency if I mixed it with a spoon...)
Poured into the cups, and let set a few hours in the freezer... The plan was to let set overnight, but we couldn't resist! They were delicious! A perfect summer treat, not to mention our waist lines love it as much as we do, and it's super cheap and easy!
Enjoy! Stay cool!
Additional Note: After posting this a friend of mine read it and told me she does something similar but before pouring the coffee into the cups, pours a bit of Hershey's syrup into the tip of each cup so it's a Mocha pop. Must try this for our next batch!
