Step aside, cherry and orange. The dog days of summer have taken on a whole new meaning with beef popsicles that sound more like creative treats for man’s best friend. NYC restaurant Springbone Kitchen has jumped on the bone broth bandwagon by mixing the superfood with coconut milk, raspberry puree, pomegranate juice and maple sugar to create the latest hot weather snack for health nuts. Anxious to try the sweet and savory frozen concoction? Here’s what you should know:
What is Bone Broth?
A stock or soup created by boiling animal bones (typically beef) in water until they crumble and fall apart. It certainly tastes more delicious than it sounds.
What are the Health Benefits of Bone Broth?
Aside from the collagen, vitamins and minerals found in the bones, there are claims that the hot liquid may speed up weight loss and strengthen your immune system. If you’re looking for more information, check out Dr. Kellyann Petrucci’s best-selling Bone Broth Diet book. Or just head to Goop.com—we're pretty sure Gwyneth Paltrow buys at least 90 percent of the world's supply of the stuff.
So How Do These Popsicles Taste?
“A little bit sweet,” Springbone Kitchen’s founder, Jordan Feldman, told the New York Post. But don’t ask Kelly Ripa and Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons. They make the dessert sound far from appetizing.
I’m sold. Where can I get one?
Springbone Kitchen in Greenwich Village. They’re $4 each, but can you really put a price on good health and inevitable Instagram likes?
