Now that summer has officially arrived in the Haas house, my kids want to get up at 7am and play.
They do not want to eat. They do not want to wake up slowly and watch some morning cartoons. They do not want to lounge in pj’s till noon.
Damn I miss lounging in pg’s till noon.
They want to run into the backyard like banshees and get into every possible thing before I have so much as poured cream in my coffee. So yesterday I created a “Mommy’s Special Frozen Coffee Recipe“, complete with dollar store ingredients so as not to break the bank, and grab-able for those early morning backyard days. Which is pretty much every day in my world.
Looks like this…
but tastes like this…
Frozen Coffee Pumpkin Pop
- 1/2 cup can of pumpkin
- 1/4th cup Sweet Condensed Milk
- 1 Chai Coffee K cup (or you can use your favorite flavor if you prefer) (make 1 1/3 cup coffee, if you are on a Keurig that is the second to last setting)
1) Mix together, pour into your molds, set overnight and voila! This recipe makes 4 homemade ice pops that have prerequisite caffeine filled coffee, so keep them away from your kids unless you want them to skip naps.
They are delicious.
