Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles!

Hi chocolate-covered espresso beans!

Ick, I tried a chocolate-covered espresso bean once. It was not good.

Almost broke my tooth! And I hate how coffee beans—especially flavored ones—don’t taste as yummy as they smell. Chocolate-raspberry coffee? Snickerdoodle coffee? They sound good in theory…

In reality, I’d much rather have Snickerdoodle Pancakes.

Maybe with one of these babies on the side:

coffee popsicle

Inspired by this Starbucks copycat recipe: Healthy Frappuccinos.

These coffee popsicles are like Starbucks on a stick!

 You don’t need popsicle molds for these! 🙂

Frappuccino Pops

(Makes 4 popsicles)

  • 1/2 cup yogurt or milk of choice (or full-fat canned coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup Silk creamer (see link below, for lower-calorie option)
  • 1 tsp instant coffee (such as Mt. Hagan)
  • 1 1/2 nunaturals stevia packets or 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • Feel free to add some chocolate syrup, for a mocha pop

Mix all ingredients in a cup, then microwave 30 seconds to dissolve coffee. Stir, then pour into popsicle molds (or paper cups!) and freeze. For the richest flavor, use only creamer as your liquid. Or you might even experiment with full-fat coconut milk. Or nondairy yogurt?

As a fun alternative, try freezing this recipe in an ice-cube tray for coffee-flavored ice!

    Cinnamon-roll-on-a-stick, oatmeal-on-a-stick, sushi-on-a-stick, carrot-cake-on-a-stick, larabar-on-a-stick, waffle-on-a-stick… EVERYTHING should be on-a-stick, … makes them so appealing, so delicious-looking and portable 😀 I wish it were possible to put a pancake on a stick haha. I need(!!!!) to buy my Popsicle mold!!! 😀

  2. Nikita says

    Yummmm, Starbucks on a stick! After a sleepless night (thanks snoring hubby and hyper cat!), that sounds heavenly.
    I’m thinking cheesecake on a stick sounds pretty amazing.

  3. Lilly says

    oh jeez, I totally forgot about those Starbucks frozen frapaccino bars, I used to love the mocha ones! do they even still make those? Well, who cares anyways, yours sound much better of course 🙂 Okay, so I just googled it… and they stopped making those frap bars, they were dairy (of course) with sugar being the third ingredient after skim milk and milk, so basically: yours ROCK! 🙂

  4. Amber K says

    As long as it is at least gluten-free, I will eat it on a stick! Everything sounds delicious.

    I love the way Snickerdoodle and Gingerbread coffee SMELLS. Then again I like how coffee smells in general, but the taste is HORRIBLE. I am so glad I can’t handle caffeine, because I’m certainly not missing out on anything when it comes to taste!

  5. Ellen says

    I’m loving the idea of pumpkin pie on a stick. How about a chocolate-peanut butter cheesecake on a stick, dipped in chocolate chips and frozen? Just dreamin’….;)

  6. Jen says

    Why is everything more fun on a stick? It’s a funny concept, but so true! I’ve seen a lot of cheesecake bites on sticks before, but never a vegan version. I would say go for that, or carrot cake on a stick! You can never go wrong with carrot cake.

  7. Katy @ Fit In Heels says

    I’m opposite! I think chocolate covered espresso or coffee beans are the way to go! I don’t like the taste of coffee but love the smell and think the bean actually tastes like the smell.. mostly 🙂 those pops look to DIE for!!! Yahooooooooo!

  8. Aine @ Something to Chew Over says

    Yum great idea! I love cake pops. What about fudge on a stick? 🙂

    I don’t get chocolate-covered coffee beans either, what a waste of chocolate.

  9. Alex @ fightcancerwithfood says

    You don’t love chocolate-covered espresso beans?! Oh my oh my. They’re so good! Crunchy little beans of hyper-filled goodness. Me and a friend went through a bag of them in one sitting once – I was bouncing off the walls for hours, but it was totally worth it. Just like I’m sure these would be 🙂

  10. Gloria says

    Frozen key lime pie on a stick.. Dipped in chocolate! It used to love walking around Key West on a hot day with one of those babies

  11. kaila @ healthy helper! says

    Omg this looks sooooo good! I am sure these are ridiculously creamy and delicious!!!! I need to get some popsicle molds ASAP!

  12. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says

    Oh yeah these look stellar!

    I often joke that I like to have a little coffee with my flavored cream (from Baileys Irish Cream nonalcoholic to Coffeemate Vanilla..and no, they’re not vegan to the So Delicious Vanilla one which is vegan) but I LOVE flavored coffee creamers…mmmm, good.

    So I would be all over these!

    Any anything on a stick is just more fun to eat from cakepops to lollipops <–posting about those today later on.

  13. Jessica @ Jess Go Bananas says

    Most people think lemonade or ice cream is the best summer time treat, but I think they are forgetting about iced coffee! Iced coffee pops – even better! Crack on a stick! lol

  14. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    Mmmm you come up with the BEST ideas Katie!! This reminds me that I had a dream about us eating popsicles together a few days ago haha!! Sorry I think my Katie obsession has gone a little too far now! 😛

  15. Veggie V! @Veggie V's Vegan Adventure says

    Just about anything on a stick is OK w/ me! (Well, not meat on a stick, but that shouldn’t be OK w/ anyone – ha ha.)

    I’m totally trying this or the ice cube trick. Love, love, love your idea for the Frappicino fake-out. I’ve tried using ice, and it just doesn’t work. I’m totally trying the ice cubes – and now maybe the paper cup trick.

    Thanks for the great ideas 🙂

  16. Tara says

    I thought my morning cup of coffee was nice to wake up to — this is just that excitement x 1000. Such a cute and fun idea! I wonder if it would be possible to make bread pudding on a stick.. that would be awesome!

  17. Jennie says

    Oooh this looks fantastic! I’m always looking for ways to make frappuccinos last longer! Anything peanut butter on a stick related would be lush I’m sure 🙂

  18. Katie @ Nutrition in a peanut shell says

    Yay I can see your server now! 🙂
    Or site, whatever you call it.
    Pickles on a stick are fun…and I’m pretty sure they make choco covered pickles, if you wanna jump into that 😉

  19. Marianne says

    Hmmm…food on a stick is fun, but I always claim that they best way to improve food and make it more fun is to make a dip for it. Who doesn’t like dipping food into something that makes it even more delicious? Plus you get to play with your food!

  20. Laura says

    I actually tried chocolate covered espresso beans and LOVED them – maybe you got a bad batch? They aren’t healthy for you at all but they are SO delicious and addicting 🙂

  21. Robin says

    these sound much more than delicious. i love starbucks frappuccinos, but they are way too over-priced (especially around here, 0.50 cents + for soy milk, what?!). luckily i might just have found an alternative.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I guess we should be happy they even offer soymilk now as an option… but yeah, I’m miiffed at the fact that it’s more too. I mean, they use Silk, which isn’t more expensive than regular milk (I don’t think it is, anyway… lol I can’t say I really know how much milk costs, though!)

  22. cheesecake recipe says

    Hey cheesecake on stick sounds great! If anyone have come up with the recipe please do share it, I so so love cheesecake! I’m thinking of making my own version as well, I think caramel cheesecake will be a nice flavor. Anyways, I’ll be back to share if ever I come up with something. 🙂

  23. Frappuccino Lover says

    I tried your Healthy Frappuccino and it was AMAZING!! So I can’t wait to try this recipe. The minute it gets warmer I’m going to try this recipe right away.
