Flavored Ice Pops
Many people only associate ice pops or popsicles with fruit juice or soft drinks. However, these can just as easily be made by using a combination of milk and coffee as well. Instead of making the coffee with water, it should be made with milk, poured into molds and be allowed to set in the freezer for a few hours. Anyone who is allergic to dairy can consider using coconut milk, almond milk or even rice milk as a substitute and still enjoy a cold dessert.
Although these delectable coffee desserts may not be suitable for young children, they will definitely be a hit at an all-adults dinner party. When using any regular brownie recipe, a few tablespoons of any type of finely ground espresso can be used to enhance the flavor substantially, while also adding an interesting twist to what is usually a relatively plain dessert.
Coffee Panna Cotta
This is an extremely smooth and creamy dessert that can be prepared in shaped molds, with a coffee-based and/or brandy sauce that is flambéed over it. The dessert itself can then be garnished with chocolate chips, chocolate-covered coffee beans or even a basic chocolate sauce. If serving to children or non-alcoholics, the brandy can be omitted from the recipe.
Quick Coffee Ice Cream
Beating just 2 cups of heavy cream, adding sweetened condensed milk, chopped nuts and dissolved coffee to the mixture will yield a delicious homemade coffee-flavored ice cream. Once beaten, the mixture will have to be placed in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours to set fully. Nuts can be omitted if need be and replaced with chopped fruit pieces, chocolate chips, sprinkles or even crushed Oreo cookies.
