I created this recipe for ebay a few months ago and I wanted to share about it here on the blog because I know you guys are going to love these yummy mocha paletas during the warm days of spring and summer!

My mom’s hot chocolate memories inspired this recipe. I’ll always remember tasting the hint of sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon mixed with a toasted chocolate flavor. So when I started to make my own coffee, I started to add ½ teaspoon of cinnamon together with 4 tablespoons of ground coffee and place it to brew. Using that idea I created these mocha paletas, but as a special touch, I added a pinch of cayenne pepper. They are soooo good!How to make vegan mocha paletas with a spicy touch | Live ColorfulTip: If you would like to create a milder version just add half the amount of spices listed below in the ingredients list.

STEPS:

  1. Stir together the ground coffee, cinnamon, chili powder and cayenne pepper, place into the brew basket.
  2. Set the carafe in place to brew. I made about 3 cups of coffee.
  3. While the coffee is brewing, mix almond milk and a bar of a chocolate bar to make hot chocolate. You can add as much chocolate as you want for a more intense and sweet flavor.
  4. When the brew is complete, mix the coffee with the hot chocolate and place the mix into the popsicle molds.
  5. Allow pops to freeze fully overnight, or about 8 hours.
