Vietnamese-Style Coffee on a Stick

Over the long weekend I finally got around to experimenting with my new popsicle mold. The final result was perfect for the hot Summer months and a coffee lover's dream, a coffee popsicle! I used Vietnamese-style coffee — a simple concoction of sweetened condensed milk and strong coffee, traditionally served over ice — as my inspiration. These frozen delights were cool, refreshing, and oh so delicious. Packed with a caffeine punch, these popsicles are super simple to make. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze!

This popsicle recipe can easily be altered to suit any coffee taste so feel free to add vanilla, mocha, or chocolate. To learn how to freeze your favorite coffee beverage, please

Vietnamese-Style Coffee Popsicles


  1. 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  2. 1 3/4 cup water
  3. 1/4 cup freshly ground espresso coffee


1. Brew the coffee to a strong robust flavor. Using a French press, it takes approximately 10 minutes. I love French press but any other coffee brewing method would also work.

2. Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a separate bowl.
3. Slowly pour the hot coffee into the bowl with the sweetened condense milk. Stir.
4. Chill coffee and sweetened condensed milk mixture in the refrigerator until cool.
5. Strain the coffee, if needed.

6. Fill popsicle forms and place in freezer.

7. Once frozen, pop out of the form and enjoy!

Makes 4 popsicles.

This sounds wonderful!!! However, for Cafe Sua (Vietnamese coffee) lovers, this will NOT taste the same as what you usually get at a restuarant. Cafe Sua is made from vietnamese coffee or, more commonly, Chicory coffee, not expresso. You can buy a metal drip brewer and chicory coffee (Cafe Du Monde)from an asian store fairly cheaply.

Yum they would probably taste a little better if you used twice as much ground coffee rather than steeping it for twice as long. Steeping too long makes it taste bitter. Double strong is usually just double the grinds.

Glad everyone like the coffee popsicles. ! I did buy my molds at Target and be sure to check out my June's must haves for other popsicle recommendations! I wanted a thinner popsicle mold to make sure they were not overwhelming to eat! :)

Sorry about the double comment; I can't figure out how to delete the duplicate! At any rate, here's a link to a similar mold at Target: I can't find the exact one I bought at the store online. The molds I found at the store are very close the ones in the photos for the Vietnamese-Style Coffee on a Stick, and they're silicone rather than plastic.
