Canela Cafe Pops

Posted by

Too hot to have a cup of coffee? Have a canela cafe pop instead! These cinnamon-coffee ice pops are refreshing and give you a little boost at the same time. And the cinnamon… oh, mamma mia! It would also be great as a granita with a little whipped cream on top. I hope you try it… if you do, I’m SURE you’ll like it! 😀
