Add a frozen vanilla latte coffee treat to your day — no barista required

Your morning latte might be the best thing that happens to you at the start of the day, but this recipe for vanilla latte Creamsicles can perk up your afternoon or evening too. I mean, they're frozen vanilla lattes on a stick. Who could ask for more?

Add a frozen vanilla latte coffee treat to your day — no barista required

Like the liquid version, the "foam" layer sits on top, with the rich coffee goodness just below. I added a bit more sweetener (I used honey, but you can use sugar if you prefer) to these than I'd normally add to my coffee, but the choice is yours.

Vanilla latte Creamsicles recipe

Yields 6

Ingredients:

For the cream layer

  • 5 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the coffee layer

  • 1-1/2 cups brewed coffee
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:

For the cream layer

  1. This will be the first layer to add to the molds (the top portion of the Creamsicles). To a bowl, add the yogurt and milk. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Add the honey and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Taste, and adjust the flavor as needed.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the molds, just about 1/3 of the way to the top.
  4. Place in the freezer for 1 hour or until frozen.

For the coffee layer

  1. To a bowl, add the brewed coffee and Greek yogurt, and whisk until smooth.
  2. Add the honey and vanilla to the mixture. Whisk to combine. Taste, and adjust the flavor as needed.
  3. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes or until chilled.
  4. When the cream layers have frozen and the mixture for the coffee layers is chilled, pour the coffee mixture into the molds over the cream layers.
  5. Freeze for about 45 minutes but not until frozen completely. Carefully add wooden sticks or the molds' plastic handles into the center of each mold.
  6. Continue to freeze until solid.
  7. To remove the Creamsicles from their molds, run them under warm water for a few seconds (take care to not run the tops under the water) to help loosen them.
  8. Serve immediately.

Perk up your day with these treats.
