I wanted to make Thai Iced Tea popsicles but at the last minute realized that I was out of Thai tea. Well, the Thai coffee I had on hand made for really amazing popsicles. ‘Twas meant to be.
This recipe was inspired by David Lebovitz’s blogpost on Vietnamese Coffee Popsicles.
Since vendors in Thailand typically use both evaporated and sweetened condensed milk in Thai iced tea and Thai iced coffee, I incorporated both ingredients in the popsicles.
I like it when flavors are true to home. 🙂
First, make the coffee. I used a French press since I find it easiest.
- Thai Coffee, 2/3 cup
- Hot water, 2 cups
If you use a French press, it will yield 1 1/2 cups of coffee.
- Evaporated milk, 1/3 cup
- Sweet condensed milk, 1/3 cup
Mix together, taste, and adjust the flavors to your liking. Pour into mold and freeze.
I had some coffee left over after filling the molds, so I just poured it into a glass filled with ice for an instant gratification treat. Hello summertime!
