Vegan Espresso Fudgesicles // take a megabite

I’m feelin’ pretty good this week. I’ve been making tacos and quesadillas and drinking ginger grapefruit beer (the redhead of beer) the whole time. I’ve been having a fudgesicle for dessert after lunch. I’ve been walking Elliot in the morning, and not running in my shirt that says I run. I’ve watched sad-ish movies. I’ve been painting my nails and then switching the color. (Commitment issues.)

So it’s time to make frozen everything, you guys. It’s too hot! It’s almost too hot to crisp up tortillas. It’s even almost too hot to make a salad! So let’s eat popsicles in the backyard. Every. Single. Day. Let’s lounge directly in front of a fan and read magazines. Let’s just chill out, literally.

P.S. I’ve made fudgesicles before. I wanted to re-make them coconut milk though. Because you see, I’m obsessed with chocolate coconut milk ice cream. And because I want to be able to eat two a day, ya know?

P.P.S. I took next week off work! Rumor has it, it won’t be as hot. I want to make brunch every day and nap every afternoon!

Vegan Espresso Fudgesicles // take a megabite

Vegan Espresso Fudgesicles (makes 8 minis)
Recipe adapted from Simone Anne*

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14 oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 T espresso, coarsely ground
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 T sugar

Directions:

  1. Place the coconut milk, chocolate, and espresso in a saucepan and heat until chocolate is mostly melted. Set aside for 5 minutes for the coffee to steep. Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer and toss the grounds. Stir in salt, vanilla, and sugar. Taste and add more sugar to taste. Pour into popsicle mold and freeze for a few hours or over night. When ready to eat, run the mold under warm water. If you pull a stick out sans pop just run it under water and place back in the popsicle to freeze.

*This should say that I complicated things since her pops were just 2 ingredients, but I’ve had espresso fudgesicle hopes and dreams! Feel free to taste and flavor however your summer-time heart desires!

Yay! Click HERE for a printable pdf of the recipe above.

Your week off plan sounds magic. Heck, these popsicles are a reason to take a week off, as far as I’m concerned. Long live frozen fudge desserts.

I need these in my life! They look like the BEST fudgesicles. You’re right, it is too hot to make a salad.

I wonder if I can find that beer here. In other words, I’m making it my life’s mission to find that beer this weekend.

These espresso-fudgesicles might need to happen today because we have a heat wave happening in San Diego. I won’t complain, because I know it’s normal for you guys.

And man-0-man, these are totes a dream for those toasty days.
