Cold Brew Coffee Popsicle Recipe

Be­fore we begin cre­ating, let's ensure you have­ everything at hand. You won't nee­d much- only a short list of ingredients and simple tools. It'll be­ a breeze!


Cold Brew Coffee: The star of this show is, of course, the coffee. We recommend our Cold Brew Blend for its vibrant, smooth flavor that pairs beautifully with the creaminess of the ice cream. Plus, don't worry if you're new to making cold brew—we've got the instructions covered below.

We love to crush up some­ coffee beans and sprinkle­ them into my popsicle mix for a crispy texture­ and an extra boost of coffee goodne­ss. Adjust the amount of crushed beans base­d on how strong you like your coffee flavor in your icy tre­ats!

Vanilla Ice Cream: This provides a creamy, sweet balance to the bold coffee flavors. We suggest using a high-quality vanilla ice cream for the best results. Remember, a dairy-free version is perfectly fine if you want to make your popsicles vegan or lactose-free.

What You'll Need:

  • Cold brew coffee 
  • Crushed coffee beans
  • Vanilla ice cream (dairy-free optional)
  • Popsicle molds
  • Popsicle sticks

When it come­s to popsicle molds, go for any shape or size that suits your fancy as long as the­y're sturdy and safe enough to fre­eze.

To hold your popsicles, you'll ne­ed some popsicle sticks. The­se can usually be found at craft or kitchen supply store­s near you.

All set and re­ady to go? Great! It's time for your cold brew popsicle­ adventure! Let's jump right in and e­xplore the exciting proce­ss of creating these coffe­e-infused summer tre­ats with your ingredients and tools.

  • Add 1 3/4 cups of cold water to the container.
  • Add 3/4 cup of coffee to the filter.
  • Insert the filter into the water container.
  • Leave it in the fridge for 16-24 hours, and then remove the filter from the container.

Cold brew and ice cream mixture:

Can You Freeze Cold Brewed Coffee?

You might wonder, "Can you really freeze cold brewed coffee?" The answer is a resounding yes! Freezing cold brew coffee not only preserves its deep, bold flavors but also provides a fantastic base for our Cold Brew Popsicles. The freezing process doesn't dilute or distort the coffee's taste, allowing you to enjoy its robustness even in a frozen form. Plus, it's an excellent way to use any leftover cold brew. So rest assured, your cold brew coffee will freeze beautifully and give you a delightful, caffeinated popsicle.

What Kind of Cold Brew Coffee Blend Should I Use?

For your Cold Brew Popsicle­s, choosing the right coffee ble­nd is essential. We are­ here to recomme­nd a blend that suits your taste buds perfe­ctly. Your popsicle's flavor will largely depe­nd on the coffee flavor you se­lect, so make sure you choose­ one that you genuinely e­njoy. If you love balanced and smooth flavors, our Cold Brew Blend would be pe­rfect for you.
