These coconut coffee cream pops are a delicious way to cool down in the Summer heat. Vanilla coconut cream and hazelnut nut coffee are layered together and topped with toasted coconut and hazelnuts for some crunch.
The thing I love about these ice pops is that whether you’re Paleo| gluten free| or none of the above| they’re delicious. They’re not just delicious to those following a niche diet; they’re downright decadent and creamy with a caffeine kick to everyone. The crunchy hazelnut and toasted coconut topping is my favorite part (even though a few too many chopped hazelnuts might’ve fallen down my sweaty shirt as I ate this spread.)
