It’s Summer people!! And if you are in Houston you know its been Summer since mid-March and we are now entering into the corona of the sun.
I mean its HOT!! We might as well just be sitting on a hotplate with these crazy rays we’re getting right now. BUT….on the plus side with great heat..comes awesome tans!! Yes! I tan, and I love the golden glow I get ((although it’s only temporary)) I still enjoy it for the day.
However, we aren’t all sitting out in the sun soaking up the rays. Some of us have to work during the week. Fixing a cup of coffee just to walk outside to 80 degree weather at 10am isn’t really ideal. Especially, for that amazing cup of joe we had our hearts set on. *sighs*
The other day I had a few meetings lined up, and the day started EARLY..I mean early. So I needed a pick me up. I’m not a big coffee drinker, I prefer Earl over Joe pretty much anytime. However, I knew Earl just wasn’t going to cut it for me this particular morning. So I opted to give Joe a chance…
and placed Joe right into the fridge for later.
It was entirely too hot for me to even fathom drinking coffee. At least, I could have still enjoyed Earl after he cooled down.
..Then I started thinking, I’ll just make an iced coffee drink when I get home and enjoy it then. (Didn’t have time to make it that morning, brewing the coffee took up more than enough time as it is)
SOOO..of course when I got home I didn’t even want to deal with Joe. I just wanted to enjoy something cool and refreshing while I sat outside by the pool. A few things kept running through my head..
Coffee smoothie.. nah!
oohh…coffee cake.. Mica you don’t even like cake!
I needed to do something with that coffee, I hate wasting food/ drinks/ snack..just anything that’s meant for consumption. NO WASTING!!
So I decided to make ice cubes with them..I still have no idea what I’m going to use them for, but at least I bought the coffee a little more time to last. LOL
The ice cubes inspired me to make these amazing espresso push pops!! These yummy little Summer pick-me-ups are super refreshing, and perfect for that mid-day energy boost. Plus, they are completely vegan and only contains 3 ingredients. SCORE!
You have to try these!! Keep them in the freezer for a grab-n-go cup of Joe! Or for a pool party, to blow your friends away with something different.
Stay Feisty. Stay Cool.
