Sweet Coffee Popsicles

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet
Make you want to move your dancing feet

*1 pot extra strong coffee, your favorite flavor *3 table spoons sweetened condensed milk *popsicle molds

I ran a 5k “mud and obstacle” race today in costume as Black Swans  with three of my girlfriends.  It was my third year at “RunAmuck.”  Check out Ericka’s photos here at The Sweet Life. My shoulders are seriously red with sun burn,  my calves are sore and my manicure is a mess,  but I feel amazing and refreshed.  It’s really starting to feel like Summer!Since I love iced coffee so much, and it’s been so warm lately, I thought I would see how coffee popsicles might taste.  I used my new favorite flavor Dunkin Donuts Strawberry Shortcake.  It’s just a hint of strawberry so that it’s not to sweet.  It’s dreamy.  If you don’t make the popsicles at least try the coffee.

 

1. Make a pot of strong, strong coffee.

2. Sweeten it with three tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk (too much cream will keep them from hardening).

3. Let your coffee cool in the fridge for a couple hours.

4. Pour into popsicle molds and let them harden over night.  If you have trouble removing them from the mold, run some hot water over the mold briefly and they should slide right out.
