Has the summer heat been bringing you down by making you hot and tired? Well then cool down while perking up with a Raspberry Mocha Popsicle! The key here is using extra strong coffee for that pick-me-up we so desire. You can use any coffee you like. This recipe is so quick and easy but there is one hard part…waiting for them to freeze! I am impatient when it comes to tasting new recipes but these popsicles are well worth the wait.

This recipe calls for raspberries, but strawberries and blackberries work really well too. I put the raspberries in a zip-lock bag and smushed them up so I didn’t have to take out the blender…the simpler the better in my opinion!

Ingredients:

Makes 12 3oz. popsicles
  • 2 cups extra-strong brewed coffee or espresso
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of raspberries (puree or mash)
  • 36 whole frozen or fresh raspberries (optional)

Directions:

  1. Brew your espresso or coffee then pour into mixing bowl
  2. Add the cocoa powder, condensed milk and the berries then whisk
  3. Drop 3 whole berries into each popsicle mold
  4. Pour mixture into molds
  5. Freeze for 8 hours
