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.
