I have never been a soup person. So getting my daily broth on is difficult enough as it is without adding the heat of the summer into the mix. Insert popsicles here. My magical solution for cooling off and getting my daily dose brothing beauty routine.
For my very first attempt at the Brothsicles, I kept things simple, used my favourite refreshing fruit combo, also known as anything that tastes like a pina colada, and mixed it with the BONED Chicken Broth. I checked in for cooking guidance from Grandma Maria to make sure that things would be food safe and sure enough, my dog and I have been cooling and enjoying the pops. (Sidenote: she also suggested I add rum).
Pineapple Coconut Chicken BONED Broth Pops
- 1 pint BONED, A Broth Company Chicken Broth
- 1 cup organic canned coconut milk
- 2 cup chopped pineapple
- 1 banana
- 3 tablespoons honey
- ice pop mold
First breakdown the frozen broth. Turn heat up to high on your stovetop and cook down the frozen broth until totally melted and at a boil in a small pot. Cut up your chunks of pineapple. Feel free to reserve a few to throw in for additional chunks and goodness in the popsicle mold if you enjoy fresh fruit in ice pops. It adds texture and is super yummy.
Add cooked down broth, pineapple, coconut milk, banana, and honey into a blender and blend until smooth. If you prefer creamier popsicles I recommend only cooking half the broth and adding an extra cup of coconut milk. Let the mixture come to a cool, about an hour and then fill up your pop molds. My pop molds allowed me to make six plus have a refreshing pina brolada (did you see that coming).
Freeze until firm for 4-6 hours. Run the mold under warm water to help loosen. I went full Tiki with my pops. I found this mold at Winners by Tovolo.
I think another great addition to these pops would have been a squeeze of lime or even some shredded coconut. YUM!
So the real question that you are wondering is, did it taste like chicken? There was an ever so slight hint of the herbs of the chicken broth but truly these just tasted like fruity popsicles. Overall they were really simple to put together and are an effortless treat to make if you are looking to vamp up your brothing routine. Next time I doubt I’ll get to the popsicles because I enjoyed the smoothie mix so much. Next time I’ll add the perfect complimentary alcohol to the mix, according to Grandma Maria and then we’ll be ready for a full on Tiki Party. I hope you enjoy these more than once this summer!
