Iced Coffee Popsicles

Iced Coffee Popsicles ~ this is the way to get your morning (or evening!) cup of coffee when it’s hot out, these refreshingly caffeinated popsicles are like a long tall drink of iced coffee, on a stick!

One lump, or two?  Make your pops just like you’d make your coffee, they’re completely customizable.  I like my iced coffee strong, with just a hint of cream and sugar.   I think a strong brew makes the best iced coffee, because the ice dulls the flavor a bit.  Set aside some of your morning coffee, add a little cream and a touch of sugar (it is a popsicle, after all) and you are ready to fill your mold.

These iced coffee popsicles are a simple, chic way to serve after dinner coffee, summer style.  They make a great finale to a barbecue on a warm spring or summer night.  These will melt fast when it’s hot out, though, so serve them with a napkin, or, even better, in a chilled cup.  They will be icy because of the coffee, so it’s best to lick, not bite.

People always ask, so here’s the type of popsicle mold I use, I have several, some have metal tops and some have plastic, but I always use a sheet of foil and punch the sticks through because the tops can stick. I love the classic shape and they don’t wear out. Click on the photo for more info.

TIP: Popsicle molds come with their own hard tops, but I like to use foil instead.  The popsicles lids can become very hard to remove when the sticks are not perfectly straight, and that can be a big problem.  Cover the top tightly with foil, and poke the sticks through to insert.  You won’t have any problems.

Keep in mind, these iced coffee popsicles aren’t creamy like Frappuccinos, they are frozen coffee, they have a stronger coffee taste and an icy, granita type texture.  They’re super refreshing.

Wrap each pop in a plastic baggie or waxed paper to store them.

Note ~

  • This recipe works for a mold with 10 slots, 1/4 cups each. Your mold might hold more or less liquid.

Iced Coffee Popsicles


    These amounts are approximate, based on my mold. Mix up about 2 1/4 cups of cold coffee with cream and sugar to your liking. You'll need a little extra sweetened cream for the white tips of the pops.
  • 1 3/4 --- 2 cups cold strong coffee
  • 1/2 --3/4 cup heavy cream, plus extra for the bottom of the molds
  • sugar to taste


  1. Set aside 1/3 cup of cream and sweeten it with a little sugar. Stir until completely dissolved.
  2. Pour a little of the cream into the bottom of each mold, just about 1/4 to 1/2 inch high.
  3. Freeze the mold until the cream is solid, about an hour.
  4. Mix the coffee, more cream and sugar (to taste) in a glass measuring cup and stir until the sugar is dissolved. You will need about 2 1/4 cups total. Refrigerate until chilled.
  5. Carefully pour the chilled coffee mixture into each mold, filling it to the top.
  6. Cover the top with foil, and insert the sticks. Freeze until solid.
  7. To un-mold the popsicles, fill your sink with hot water, and submerge the mold in the water right up to, but not past, the top ledge for about 15-30 seconds. If the popsicles don't slide out, submerge it for a few seconds longer.

      You can play around with this, Marrie. I used regular brewed coffee that I chilled before adding to the molds. You could use instant coffee if that’s what you like.

    I saw this on the Huffington Post site today. Very cool that you were featured! These look amazing and I’ll bet they’d be extra good made with cold brew. I love the Popsicle sticks, and assume that you made them. Are they rubber-stamped, or what?

      Hi Pattie — I actually did the lettering in photoshop! But I think you can buy little stamp sets and do it on the sticks, if you have the patience :)

        Ah! Okay, well that explains that. I am a rubber stamper and do have small stamp sets, but I don’t think I have any this small which was why I wondered how the heck you did that. Thanks. :-)
