Ah, summer... The perfect time for ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, popsicles, and other frozen treats, wouldn't you agree? These refreshing Coffee & Cream Popsicles (Picolé de Café com Leite) are not only easy and quick to prepare but also the ultimate comfort food. Trust me, you will get hooked on them!
This is a recipe from my talented Italian fellow blogger and friend Manuela Zangara, author of Manu's Menu. If you didn't know yet, she has written a must-have cookbook, The Cool Side of Summer, with 25 recipes... 18 of them have never been published on her blog -- including these Coffee & Cream Popsicles. Ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, semifreddo, sorbet, granita, popsicles… She’s got them all on this eBook.
And that is not all... The eBook also contains tips on how to make the recipes with or without an ice cream maker. There are eggless and dairy-free recipes. Some are fruity, others are creamy. Some are even low fat! There is basically a treat in there for everyone!
As she explains, "I grew up in Italy, where gelato plays a very important part at social gatherings and friends get-togethers. During the hot summer months, it’s very hard to resist the urge to enter one of the innumerable gelaterie and get out of it with a delicious ice cream cone (or cup… or brioche!) in your hands. And with a big smile on your face!"
I can already envision your smile when you taste an Italian classic such as Lemon Sorbet, an international flavor like the scrumptious Chai Banana Ice Cream, the salty-sweet combo of Salted Caramel Gelato... or these comforting Coffee & Cream Popsicles, a flavor that both Brazilian and Italian cuisines share in common. For me, they even go above and beyond... as they bring back fond memories of my childhood.
