Vegan Maple Oatmilk Latte Popsicles

One of my favorite things lately is an iced oatmilk maple latte. Ever since I had one at a local coffee shop in Minneapolis called Dogwood Coffee back at the end of May.  It was the first time the shop had opened back up after all of the quarantine closures and I could not wait to have my favorite coffee again. It was sooo good, we all ordered one, and even Eric who isn't even vegan had the oatmilk version and loved it. Since my pocket book can't afford for me to go out to coffee more than once a week however, or I don't always get into the cities every weekend, I have been making my own at home with the coffee beans I purchased there and they are just as good (I just don't have the lovely atmosphere of the patio there to enjoy).

When I was making some the other day and it was like 90F degrees, I decided that they would make amazing popsicles to cool off with. Why not?  They are already like a treat to me, and it would be easy enough to put them in my popsicle molds and freeze them. I love making home made popsicles and creating my own flavors. I usually find the store bought ones to be too sweet, and I like a little more unusual ingredients anyhow.

For the base I used a combination of fresh brewed coffee chilled and of course the oat milk. Now of course you could use a different type of milk such as coconut milk if you wanted these even more like really rich ice cream bars and less like popsicles, but I like the oatmilk flavor best with coffee, and I have added in a little bit of cashew butter here for a little richness already. I added a little maple syrup for the sweetness as it is included in the classic latte that I love. Just enough to give it a little flavor but not make it overly sweet. If you prefer really sweet coffee drinks, you can add a few Tbsp more.

These turned out sooo good though!  I don't usually drink my coffee in the afternoon, but I have been having one of these after work to cool off with after the hot car ride home.  They are rich with coffee flavor mellowed out by the oatmilk, with just enough sweetness from the maple to make them dessert like.  If you are an oatmilk latte fan, definitely give these a try!
