Brothsicles

Quite honestly, I haven't been this excited about recipe development in my whole life (...so much so that I had to all-caps the title of this post). These bone broth-based popsicles are without a doubt the most nutrient dense frozen treats to grace the depths of your freezer. Not only are they totally Weston. A. Price approved, but they also taste AH-MAZING.

I have tried to consume as much bone broth as possible over the years, but started drinking it every single morning about 7 or 8 months ago. It was the end of summer here in Canada and so incorporating warm broth throughout autumn and winter was the perfect way to balance the cold yin weather with a warm yang morning beverage. However, during the past couple of weeks we've shifted drastically from snow into 35 degree and sunny days- and I have been having a really hard time keeping up with the hot broth-based tonics first thing in the morning (too much heat going on).

Cue: the brothsicle!

These brothsicles are the perfect way to get more bone broth in your diet- especially in the warmer months of the year. They feature 100% real food- no added sugar, and infinite possibilities of flavours. For my first round of flavour trials, I've got chocolate fudge (bringing back all the Fudgsicle® vibes back from your childhood- minus the sugar high and insulin dump), and an epic sour lemon & wild blueberry combo.

 

Chocolate Fudge Brothsicle 

Ingredients

- 3 (medium) organic avocados (ripe)

- 1 cup of cold bone broth of your choice (I used homemade beef marrow broth; recipe HERE)

- 1/4 cup organic coconut milk (with no added sweeteners, from a BPA-free can)

- 2 heaped tbsp organic raw cacao powder

- 1 heaped tbsp organic roasted carob powder

- pinch of sea salt

- 2 tbsp grass-fed collagen powder (optional, but this will up your protein content)

- 1 tsp wildcrafted pine pollen (optional)

- 1 tsp organic maca powder (optional)

- 1 tsp wildcrafted chaga powder (optional)

Note: I did not add any sweetener to the pops, but consider adding in two large medjool dates, or 1-2 tbsp of high quality maple syrup (especially if making for kids).
The adaptogens (like pine pollen and chaga) are optional; they are not at all essential for the recipe, but will add an even greater nutritional kick. Feel free to interchange whichever superfood powders you like.

 

Instructions

1. Blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor until smooth

2. Fill popsicle moulds with the creamy mixture, insert a popsicle stick, and place in freezer until frozen (approx. 2 hours).

 Fudgesicles were my favourite cold treat as a kid, this seriously brought back all the feels!
