The flavor of your favorite latté in a sugar-free, cold-brewed frozen treat!
I don’t drink much coffee. Being a person who has gotten migraines her whole life (even though mine were atypical), and also being a person who is extremely caffeine-sensitive, I have always had to be careful, even with decaf. But on a hot summer day an iced decaf latté really hits the spot. I make my own decaf from organic, fair-trade coffee, cold brewed in the fridge. It’s so much mellower and seems to have less caffeine when it’s cold-brewed. I enjoy it iced with stevia and full-fat coconut milk on hot days. So why not turn that treat into a frozen pop?
This recipe makes 10 1/2 cup pops using this freezer pop maker.

Cold-brewed latté pops
- 2.5 cups coffee cold-brewed decaf
- 2.5 cups coconut milk canned, full-fat, organic
- 2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 40 drops stevia (organic) liquid
- Brew decaf coffee in the refrigerator overnight. I use 1 cup ground coffee to 4 cups filtered water in a tall jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well before placing in the fridge so all the coffee gets wet (it tends to clump up).
- Strain coffee using a coffee filter into a clean jar. This usually takes at least 30 minutes. Replace the filter midway through if it seems very slow. You can put a filter inside a strainer or a funnel, or both. Make sure it's all balanced so you don't end up with coffee and grounds all over the counter.
- Blend 2-1/2 cups coffee with the coconut milk, vanilla, and stevia extracts.
- Fill molds to the top with coffee mixture. Freeze 60 minutes. BE SURE TO SET A TIMER!
- Insert the sticks by pushing into the partially frozen top layer about halfway down as evenly as possible (check that they are vertical).
- Return to freezer and freeze several more hours, preferably overnight.
- To unmold: Fill a tall glass 3/4 full with warm water. Hold each mold in the water, taking care to keep the edge of the mold above the water line. After approximately 45-60 seconds you will be able to pull the pop out. Have a ziptop freezer bag ready, and freeze pops as you unmold them.
