So as I was nodding off while Eden nursed a great idea came to me. The Frapp-pop: a delicious way to get an extra kick of caffeine midday.
Mocha Frappuchino Popsicles (Frapp-pops)
makes 8 popsicles
3 cups soy milk (I used vanilla flavored soy milk. If you use plain add 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1 tbsp + 1 tsp instant coffee
3-4 tbsp sugar
1 heaping tbsp soy protein powder
1 tbsp + 2 tsp cocoa powder
*for classic frappuchino, omit cocoa powder and reduce sugar by 1 tbsp
Once frozen, break (or cut with a hot knife) frozen frapp into small pieces that your blender can handle (it may need to defrost a little) and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into popsicle molds and refreeze.
This double freeze method gives the frapp-pops a smoother texture. If you were to pour directly into popsicle molds without the first freeze, the popsicles would turn out icy and flaky. You'll be glad you made the extra step.
