Are you a popsicle fan? The typical icy, fruity popsicles never really interested me as a kid. I mean, I was never one to pass up sweets when the opportunity presented itself, but if I had a choice, it was chocolate all day, every day.

Not only that, but creamy, dreamy, melt-in-your-mouth fudgesicle was something I looked forward to much more than those neon, syrupy push-pops. And don’t even get me started on orangesicles. Never ever times infinity.

I’ve always been and always will be a chocolate all the way kind of girl.

But as I’ve grown, I’ve been getting into some more…advanced…flavors than just pure chocolate. I mean, there’s always a time and a place for pure unadulterated chocolate euphoria, but when chocolate is mixed with other ingredients like coconut and coffee, it’s taken to a whole.other.level.

And the fact that this combo totally reminds me of those Mocha Coconut Frappuccinos I loved so very much makes me one happy camper.

Thus! The Mocha Coconut Frappuccino Popsicle was born. aka. my grown up fudgesicle!!

Cue exclamation points all around!

I’m so dang tickled with this FIVE ingredient recipe. I know we’ve used a lot of coconut cream on the blog recently, so I promise you’re going to love it in these. It’s so thick, creamy, and luscious; it’s the absolute perfect base for these here pops. Add some cocoa powder, maple syrup to sweeten, and cold brew concentrate to give it a kick (insert ALL of the heart-eyed emojis here), and mix. And pour into molds [I used these molds that my grandma so graciously found for me at Target!]. And that’s pretty much it.

I love how we make the freezer do all of the heavy lifting with this recipe. Because in summer, you shouldn’t be slaving over baked goods whenever a sweet craving strikes. There’s just too much sun, warm weather, and happiness to soak up. These babies are quick, easy, and totally storable in your freezer for whenever you want a delicious way to cool down.

Don’t you just want to lick your computer right now?!

No? Just me?

Well…this is awkward.

Make these, friends! You’re gonna love ’em this summer!

Mocha Coconut Frappuccino Popsicles
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 popsicles
 
Ingredients
  • FOR THE POPSICLES:
  • 1 14-oz. can coconut cream, refrigerated overnight*
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. cold brew concentrate (I get mine from Trader Joe's) or REALLY strong coffee
  • FOR THE COATING:
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • shredded unsweetened coconut
Instructions
  1. Make the popsicles: Open the can of coconut cream and add the thick white cream to the bowl of your stand mixer (a hand mixer works here, too!). Whip on medium to get a uniform fluffy mixture, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add cocoa powder, maple syrup, and cold brew, and mix again, starting on low and then increasing to medium-high, until everything is combined and fluffy. You'll probably need to stop and scrape down the sides. Taste at this point, and adjust flavors as necessary.
  3. Using a spoon, scoop mixture into your popsicle molds. Lightly tap the molds on the counter to fill in the air bubbles. You can also use the stick and fill in the air bubbles by mixing the mixture.
  4. Place in the freezer until solid.
  5. Make the coating: Combine cocoa powder, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup and mix. Dip, drizzle, dunk, or drench your frozen popsicles with the coating, and sprinkle with coconut if desired.
Notes
*If you can't find coconut cream (I find mine at Trader Joe's near the salsas), feel free to use a can of full-fat coconut milk. Refrigerate the can overnight. Remove the can from the fridge the next day, flip the can over, and open it from the bottom. Pour out the liquid and save for another use. Scoop the coconut cream (the thick white stuff), and use it in place of the coconut cream in this recipe.

 

A special thanks to the wonderful Billy @ Wit and Vinegar for organizing Popsicle Week this year!

    I am so making these! The mocha coconut frappuccino from Starbucks was my favorite, I was so sad when they discontinued it. The combination of coconut, coffee, and chocolate is just so good!

    These popsicles look so insanely mouthwatering. I’m not usually a huge fan of chocolate (I know, I know) but I’ve kind of been on a chocolatey kick lately. So I’m seriously craving these mocha pops!! :D

    • Reply Alexa [fooduzzi.com] June 24, 2016 at 10:18 PM

      Not a fan of chocolate?! I can’t even imagine what that must be like ;) I’m glad these look yummy regardless!

  • Reply Megan June 23, 2016 at 6:44 PM

    Yup I’m with ya. Chocolate popsicles all the way. None of that fruity nonsense.

  • Reply Kristy from Southern In Law June 23, 2016 at 11:07 PM

    These look INCREDIBLE! I am all for chocolate popsicles – but especially if they’re coated in chocolate too…. I mean… too much chocolate isn’t a thing that exists in my mind!

    • Reply Alexa [fooduzzi.com] June 24, 2016 at 10:18 PM

      Thank you so much, Kristy! There’s NEVER a time where there’s too much chocolate ;)

    I am so with you on the POPSICLE train!!! And I am LOVING this recipe so much, especially that coconut cream. Basically, you can spoon feed me coconut cream for days and I’ll be your best friend forever ;)

      Coconut cream is my new favorite thing! It’s so refreshing and light in the summertime!

    Wow! You have just given an idea. If it works, I will tell you ;)

    • Reply Alexa [fooduzzi.com] June 24, 2016 at 10:20 PM

      EEP!! I’m so excited to hear about it! Keep me posted :)

        I did try with peanut butter but no moccha because I know someone here who hates coffee. My fooduzzi-inspired-popsicles tasted great… but did not look really great :)

        • Reply Alexa [fooduzzi.com] June 29, 2016 at 5:55 PM

          I LOVE that idea!! I’m so glad they tasted delicious :) Peanut butter is always a good decision in my opinion ;)

    Gahhh that drizzle!! I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of mocha-flavored stuff, but I think I could definitely get on board with these! SO refreshing for summer (especially when it’s literally 100 degrees outside, ugh).

    Love the mocha flavour and that chocolate drizzle and that coconut dip (… so everything about these)! Popsicles are the only things that get me through hit days!
