Popsicles are not just for kids! Cool off this summer with these boozy Irish Cream Frappuccino Popsicles specially made just for the grown-ups. During the dog days of summer, when it is much too hot to drink regular coffee, I get my caffeine fix from drinking iced coffees and eating iced coffee popsicles. On weekends and holidays, I like to treat myself and add a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur.
My motto is “if it tastes good as a drink, it will taste great as a popsicle” and these Irish Cream Frappuccino Popsicles do not disappoint.
Use a dark roasted Irish Cream coffee for extra rich and full-bodied flavor. You can also use regular coffee and make your own minty flavor by adding a sprig of fresh mint into the grounds before brewing.
As tempting as it may be, don’t add more than 2 tablespoons of liqueur to each batch of ice pops because they will not freeze properly. This is especially important if you are using a Zoku! To make a non-alcoholic version of these popsicles, substitute the liqueur with Bailey’s Irish Cream coffee creamer instead.
If you are allergic to dairy or follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, substitute the milk with almond, soy or rice milk.
These boozy popsicles are a fun and unexpected dessert to serve guests. Instead of an after dinner coffee, offer them a light and creamy iced coffee popsicle made with just three simple ingredients – brewed coffee, milk and Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur. Four ingredients if you like to sweeten your drinks with a little sugar!
I made these popsicles in our Zoku Quick Pop Maker which I absolutely love. It freezes ice pops in under 10 minutes, making this the perfect kitchen gadget to have on hand when you need a quick and easy dessert.
