There’s a reason many restaurants offer coffee alongside dessert. This caffeinated drink doesn’t only give you an added energy boost in the evening (and tastes great with sweet treats) but is also believed to help with digestion.
But what if you don’t want a plain, piping hot cup of coffee after dinner? Don’t worry - we have you covered. Read on to learn about some of our favorite frozen coffee dessert recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth and are surprisingly easy to make - particularly when using the ColdSnap rapid freezing system!
Easy Coffee Desserts to Try
Next time you’re craving coffee treats after dinner, try one (or more) of these frozen coffee dessert ideas.
1. Coffee Granita
This Coffee Granita recipe is a tasty recipe to make: all you need is brewed coffee, sugar, coffee liquor, and orange or lemon zest for an added punch of flavor.
Combine all ingredients in a 9 by 13-inch metal pan and place in your freezer. Then comes the most timing-consuming part - using a fork to scrape the ice crystals that have formed on the side or bottom of the pan every 20 to 30 minutes for 3 to 4 hours. By the end of the process, you will have a fluffy, frozen dessert!
Of course, if you want to indulge in this dessert right away, you can skip the hassle and use the ColdSnap™ to create a perfect frozen coffee in minutes and then add coffee liquor and citrus zest to taste.
2. Creamy Mocha Frozen Dessert
Do you love a good chocolate and coffee combo? This Creamy Mocha Frozen Dessert recipe is sure to hit both of these notes. Cream-filled chocolate cookie crumbs, pecans, butter, and instant coffee make up a delectable crust. Then, softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate syrup, and whipped topping create a perfectly creamy filling.
But if you want more mocha flavor, we recommend swapping this filling with a combination of mocha-flavored ColdSnap™ Frozen Coffee and (thawed) frozen whipped topping. By gently folding the two together and adding chocolate syrup, you create a fluffy and creamy filling that’s even more coffee-forward - with a fraction of the work.
3. Coffee Sorbet
Coffee and ice cream are a winning combination. This easy recipe for coffee sorbet can come together relatively quickly with frozen coffee, your milk of choice, sugar, and flavored syrup. Putting all these ingredients together in a blender creates a creamy frozen sorbet that’s great to enjoy on a hot day. An alternative - and even easier and tastier - way to make Coffee Sorbet is by combining a ColdSnap Snappuccino™ frozen coffee with a ColdSnap ice cream (offered in Vanilla, Chocolate, and Salted Caramel).
4. Coffee Popsicles
Coffee popsicles are a great pick me up treat for those hot summer days. All you need to do is take your favorite coffee or cold brew and freeze it in popsicle molds (that you can easily find online). Of course, you can also get creative with your iced coffee pops by adding syrups and milk, or even dipping them in chocolate!
Just remember that having the right ratio of coffee, water, and additions is essential to achieve a frozen consistency.
5. ColdSnap Snappucino™
The easiest way to enjoy a frozen coffee dessert is with ColdSnap™. Simply place a Snappuccino™ pod into the ColdSnap appliance, wait two minutes, and enjoy a perfectly smooth and creamy frozen coffee. With multiple flavors available, including Caramel, Mocha, and French Vanilla, you can enjoy a frozen coffee on its own or personalize it with your favorite additions and toppings.
