Frozen Coffee Pudding Pops - Lavazza Gran Selezione #sponsored


This post is brought to you in partnership with Lavazza. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It's summer! Did you hear? Though Austin stays a bit warmer throughout the year than my former home in New England, I still get excited to break out the sun dresses and summer prints, drinks, and of course FOOD!


When the summer hits I also tend to switch over my coffee habit to a more heat-appropriate beverage--iced coffee! Which means I also tend to go darker. Ice can water down a weaker coffee. Thankfully, Lavazza has us covered with its  Gran Selezione blend.

Gran Selezione is exclusively from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee farms. It is a premium Arabica blend with intense flavor, chocolate undertones and a full-bodied taste. 100% fine Arabica, 100% sustainably grown.


You know what else is excellent in the summertime? Ice pops. Pudding pops in particular! I thought the creamy texture of a pudding pop would go perfectly with the rich flavor of Gran Selezione--and I was right!


Lavazza Coffee Pudding Pops

  • 1 package instant French vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup brewed Lavazza Gran Selezione, brewed strong and brought to room temperature


-In a stand mixer, whip together the instant pudding, milk, and cream until thick. Slowly add the coffee and mix until well blended.

-Pour into pop molds and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight. When ready to eat, place pop mold under running faucet and gently pull pop out.

Note: This makes way more than my pop molds could hold. Unless you have 2-3 sets of molds, use an ice cube tray to freeze the rest. Blend with chilled coffee for a sweet blended coffee drink or use in place of ice cubes in your iced coffee.

Pssst! Check out all the cool stuff over at Lavazza's online store! Not only can you snag some amazing coffee, but you can get some sweet coffee accessories as well!

    1. Lolz no chocolate, but you could sub in chocolate pudding and I'm sure it'd be just as good ;)

  12. At the time of small break after boring work I like to take coffee because it makes my work easier to do and gives me pleasure. Coffee Bar is the right place where I found all of my choice.
