My ideal Saturday involves taking the train into Rotterdam to have a large cappuccino at my favorite café. The barista inevitably feels it necessary to point out just how big a “large” cappuccino is, at which point my stuttering attempt to speak Dutch gives away my American-ness, and then everything makes sense to them. Americans like everything bigger! What’s a girl gotta do to get a giant cappuccino around here? I digress. Here are my favorite cappuccino ice pops.

Recipe: Cappuccino

Yields: about 2 cups, 8 (2-oz.) pops

Difficulty

  • 1 cup coffee, chilled
  • 3 Tbsp honey or sugar, divided
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
1. Stir to combine coffee and 2 tablespoons honey. In a separate bowl, combine coconut milk and remaining tablespoon of honey.
2. Pour coffee mixture into mold so that each well is about half-filled. Gently pour coconut milk over coffee. For more defined layers, place an upside-down spoon just over the coffee layer, then trickle the coconut milk over the spoon so that it slowly pours onto the coffee layer, leaving some space at the top for them to expand. You can also just freeze the coffee layer first, but this creates two distinct layers and I like the frothy look of cappuccinos to show! Insert sticks and freeze until hard (at least 4 hours).
3. Run the mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen them up, then remove from the mold.
