Recipe: Kahlua Banana Popsicles

Recipe for kahlua banana popsicles (gourmet alcoholic popsicles)


If you loved my Bourbon Fudgesicles, you'll love these! These popsicles are a sweet grown-up treat with bananas and a hint of coffee; soooo delicious!

INGREDIENTS:
(Makes 6-8 pops)

• 3 large bananas
• 1/4 cup kahlua coffee liqueur
• 1/8 cup heavy whipping cream

• Popsicle molds
• Wooden popsicle sticks


DIRECTIONS:
Combine bananas, kahlua, and cream in a blender and process until smooth. I recommend mashing the bananas down a little bit.

Pour the blended mixture into your popsicle molds and place in the freezer for about 2 hours uncovered without the sticks or popsicle mold tops. 

Insert the wooden popsicle sticks after the pops have had time to set up a little, so you can place them directly in the center and they will stay upright. Allow to freeze 3-4 more hours.

OPTIONAL GARNISH IDEAS:
Drizzle with chocolate sauce
Sprinkle with (or dip in) grated chocolate 

NOTES:
I prefer using wooden sticks to the plastic handles that come with the molds I use, because they stick better; the plastic ones tend to come out when you're trying to extract the pops from the molds, or if you're swift enough to manage it otherwise, the popsicles fall off halfway through eating. Not good! 

You can use cling film to cover the end of each mold so they're not unprotected in the freezer; just wait until they are completely frozen with the sticks in place, then use the stick to poke a hole in the plastic and wrap tight.
