Hungry And Adventurous? OK, Try A Beef-Broth Popsicle

category:

By Cooking Panda

On a hot summer day, few things sound more twisted, wretched and just plain wrong than consuming a hot cup of meaty beef broth. 

Jordan Feldman, broth fan and founder of Springbone Kitchen in New York, agrees.

So naturally, he makes a popsicle out of the stuff. He wants to start selling them to you for $4 in July, according to the New York Post.

“It’s a little bit sweet,” Feldman said of the wacky treat, which is also flavored with coconut milk, pomegranate juice, raspberry puree and maple sugar.

The zing of the meat is definitely there, but the other flavors tone it down, he added.

Feldman likes the taste of broth, obviously, but he’s said he’s really into it for the health benefits.

Feldman injured his knee playing tennis a few years ago and tried physical therapy, to no avail. Once he started drinking a cup or two of collagen-packed beef broth a day, his knee healed.

So he’s sharing the love at Springbone, a health-food spot. He said he and his team came up with the idea when trying to figure out a way to serve broth in a refreshing way for the summer. 

“We tried some cold broth, but we had to dilute [it], otherwise it’s too gelatinous ­— it’s like Jell-O. It took away a lot of the flavor…,” he said. “Then we thought, ‘Let’s freeze it.'”

If you find yourself feeling daring in New York this summer, grab a fruity yet meaty beef-broth popsicle, and do tell us how it is. 

If you like your broth hot, you can bet Springbone will still be serving up several unique varieties of the stuff.

Dessert Hummus Is A Thing And It Has Changed The Snack Game Forever

category:

By Cooking Panda

Dessert lovers and hummus enthusiasts, hold onto your hats, for there is some truly groundbreaking news in the ever evolving world of unusual sweets today. It’s called dessert hummus. 

I can feel your minds exploding.

Like traditional hummus, it’s made with chickpeas, salt and culinary superpower tahini, but coconut milk and organic Turbinado sugar make the hummus creamy and sweet.

Who do we have to thank for this culinary breakthrough? Nutritionist Makenzie Marzluff, who first whipped up a batch of cookie dough hummus for a healthy party dessert.

Rightfully so, her friends were amazed, and Marzluff quit her job to start Delighted By, her own dessert hummus company. 

Delighted By is available in four flavors: chocolate chip, brownie batter, orange ginger and snickerdoodle. They’re all completely natural, vegan and gluten-free, according to the Delighted By website.

All of that flavor action lends plenty of freedom to choosing a hummus vehicle. Think cinnamon pita chips and graham crackers for the snickerdoodle flavor or pretzels and strawberries for the brownie batter blend. The hummus can also be used in more elaborate desserts and even breakfasts.

East Coasters lucked out; Delighted By can be found at 44 Wegman’s locations. The rest of us can make a request with our local grocery store to carry the magical hummus. I haven’t even tried it, but I can’t imagine my life without it.

Your snack plans just got real.

May the Fourth be with you! That’s right, today is Star Wars Day! If you want to celebrate but don’t particularly want to serve blue milk and gruel – let’s face it, the food in Star Wars is not always the most appealing – we have some ideas for you.

Princess Leia quite possibly has the most iconic hairstyle in movie history. Take advantage of this and make it into really easy and delicious cupcakes. They are way easier to decorate than they look.

Not only do you get a delicious pizza with a healthy dose of veggies, but you’ll have an easy and stunning Star Wars-style meal. There’s only one question left: are you Team Yoda or Team Vader?

3. Lightsaber Pretzels

Are you more into the light side or the dark side? Pick a red or green lightsaber pretzel and decide once and for all!

5. Jedi Mind Trick Cocktail

The force is strong with this blue cocktail. Add a drop of blue food coloring to really take it to the next level. We can’t promise it won’t mess with your brain a little.

6. Tatooine Blue Milkshakes

Remember that blue milk we were talking about? Yeah, how about making it as a milkshake? This stunning treat will really hit the spot with those who are looking for a non-boozy option.

7. Stormtrooper Cheese Ball

This is the cheese ball you’re looking for! It looks really intricate but is actually pretty quick and easy if you follow the steps.

8. Sarlacc Bundt Cake

Don’t fall in!

9. Severed Wampa Arm Cake

Luke would be proud. Bonus points if you serve this alongside those lightsaber pretzels.
