Soon to be summer, these boozy popsicles are a cool must to help you beat the heat in delectable style.
By Matt Robinson
I’m ready for the beach, popsicles and a whole lot of granitas.
These popsicles are rich, creamy and they have a bite to them! A nice strong coffee flavor. Here’s the weird thing, I don’t even drink coffee. But I love the taste of coffee in ice cream, so I figured why not work it into some Mudslide Popsicles?
Aren’t you glad I did? Because these boozy popsicles are going to be a summer must!
If Baileys is a favorite, try these popsicles.
Or perhaps some brownie and caramel popsicles that are kid-friendly, click here.
Like margaritas? Then you have to try these peach and blackberry popsicles. Or, a tropical tequila sunrise version. I’ve got you covered.
- ¾ cup chocolate ice cream
- ½ cup chocolate milk
- ⅓ cup Kahlua
- ¼ cup vodka
- ¼ Irish cream
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee (use one with a good strong flavor like Starbucks Via French Roast)
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until ice cream is melted and everything is well combined. Pour mixture through a strainer to filter out any small clumps of instant coffee. Fill popsicle molds. Cover top with foil and poke a hole just large enough for a popsicle stick to fit through. Freeze for at least four hours or overnight. (Freeze time will vary according to freezer setting and how full your freezer is). Remove from the freezer and run hot water on the outside to remove popsicles from mold.
Real Food by Dad is my little corner of the web where I create and share real, easy-to-make, everyday meals, snacks and desserts. I am a husband, dad, coach, fitness & sports fanatic and totally amateur (and still learning) cook, fighting for kitchen space and ingredients with my food blogger wife. The blog's purpose is to share recipes created by me or ones that I have simply found in a book, on the internet, or ones that have been shared with me by friends & family. Nothing too complicated or extravagant, really just good food that I can put together for my wife and 3 sons. If I don’t think my family will eat it and love it, I won’t make it.
