Dairy-Free Cold Brew Kahlua Popsicles

IMG_2555.JPG

O.M.G!!! Thanks to these creamy treats the Alabama heat and humidity seems much more manageable! The overall alcohol content is very minimal and then about half of that cooks off - which means there ends up being only about ½ tsp of alcohol in each popsicle.  With so little alcohol, I felt okay letting my kids try, but neither was crazy about the coffee flavor. That’s fine with me though since that means more popsicle for my friends and me! Not a Kahlua fan?  No problem! Substitute another coffee liqueur or use a flavored coffee syrup. 

I also tried some new popsicle molds this time around, and they were super-easy to make. I've found that there's a big difference in popsicle molds and how well they work, and this is one of the best that I've tried (Find my popsicle mold here: Onyx Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold. ). It is pricier than the bright-colored plastic ones, but should last for years - not just 1/2 a summer like some of my previous plastic molds!

I hope you enjoy these creamy cold treats this summer! They would make the best addition to your next summer cookout!
