This recipe for iced coffee popsicles is dedicated to all of the coffee lovers out there. If you’re like me, you go to bed at night so that you can wake up the next morning and drink coffee. I consider it a serious testament to my yoga practice that I’m able to exhibit any self-control where coffee is concerned, because I could drink it morning, noon, and night.
Constantly on a mission to strategize new ways of sneaking coffee into my diet, I was inspired to combine coffee and dessert into one. These mocha iced coffee popsicles are so easy to make and have only four ingredients, most of which you likely already have on hand. They’re not too sweet, but the drizzle of melted chocolate on top really hits the sweet spot.
When you make the popsicles be sure to use a strong coffee—the process of freezing dilutes the flavor so you’ll want to use a good, potent batch. Once the coffee is brewed, all you have to do is melt half the chocolate on the stove with milk and sugar, combine with coffee, let cool, and then freeze in popsicle molds (you can buy these online for less than $10). Once frozen, drizzle with remaining melted chocolate and enjoy!

- 2 cups strong coffee
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3.5 ounces dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
In a small pot on the stove, add the milk and half of the chocolate (1.75 oz) and melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the sugar and stir until well combined.
Pour chocolate mixture and coffee into a pitcher and let cool on the counter until it comes to room temperature. Refrigerate until chilled through (I just left it in the fridge overnight).
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
Melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle over popsicles. Serve immediately.
