Last week, we featured a birthday cake ice pop recipe that’s primarily geared to two audiences:
And adults who want to feel like kids again. Nostalgic adults.
That’s all well and good. But what about when it’s time to feel like an adult? Birthday cake ice pops might not be the way to go. (Though, we’ll admit – we probably eat too many of those things ourselves.)
So, it is with the adult in mind that we created our first ever adults-only ice pop recipe, The Big Easy. This delicious ice pop recipe uses one of our personal favorite flavor extracts, Espresso Coffee Artisan Flavor. Just a little bit of this flavor extract goes a long way. Check out the ice pop recipe below…
The Big Easy Ice Pop Recipe
- 12 oz vanilla ice cream
- 1.5 oz Espresso Coffee Artisan Flavor
- 1 cup coffee-flavored liqueur
- 1/4 cup sugar
Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. If froth appears at the top of the mixture, remove it with a wooden spoon, as the frothiness could prevent your ice pops from freezing well. Pour the blended mixture into freezer-friendly cups or ice pop trays and place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. After a half hour, remove the trays and insert wooden ice pop sticks. Return mixture to freezer for 3-5 hours or until frozen. Enjoy!
Why The Big Easy?
We named this ice pop recipe The Big Easy in honor of New Orleans, a city that gets coffee. While this recipe doesn’t feature New Orleans’ classic Chicory coffee, it does pay tribute to the city’s legendary relationship with the coffee bean. Plus, it’s just the kind of afternoon snack you need to beat the heat in the Big Easy!
