Why Use Bone Broth?
These popsicles contain bone broth because it is truly a superfood packed with collagen, amino acids, and minerals. With its rich collagen content, bone broth nourishes your skin, hair, and nails, while also supporting joint health, promoting flexibility, and reducing discomfort. Collagen also works wonders for your gut, soothing inflammation and healing the digestive lining.
But the benefits don’t stop there. By consuming bone broth, you’re providing your body with essential nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which support strong bones and teeth. The amino acids present in bone broth contribute to muscle repair and growth, making these bone broth popsicles an excellent choice for children.
With so many health benefits to offer, bone broth makes a valuable addition to your diet and your fudgesicles!
Do They Taste Like Bone Broth?
Not at all! The chocolaty goodness in these frozen treats make the bone broth completely undetectable. I’ve never actually revealed to my children that these fudgesicles contain bone broth, and they remain blissfully unaware. In fact, they enthusiastically devour these bone broth fudgesicles at an alarming rate whenever I make them.
Which Bone Broth Should I Use?
The secret to getting all the health benefits of bone broth in these fudgesicles, without them taste like icy chicken or beef juice, is to use unsalted or low-sodium bone broth. If you decide to make your own bone broth at home, omit the salt, onions, and garlic in your next batch. This will result in a less savory broth that is better suited for making this bone broth fudgesicle recipe. If you haven’t attempted making your own bone broth yet but would like to give it a try, take a look at this stove-top recipe.
If you’re purchasing bone broth to use in this recipe, opt for beef bone broth, as it naturally tends to have lower sodium content compared to chicken bone broths. Excellent low sodium bone broth options are available from brands like Dr .Kellyanne and Bare Bones.
Ingredients You Will Need
- Milk – The addition of milk makes these bone broth fudgsicles extra creamy. For an extra nutritious twist, use raw milk.
- Bone Broth – The secret ingredient! Bone broth packs these popsicles with collagen, amino acids, and minerals.
- Sugar – Sugar adds sweetness to the fudgesicles and helps balance out the chocolate’s bitterness.
- Cocoa Powder – Cocoa powder adds a deeper chocolate flavor than chocolate chips alone.

- Vanilla – Adding a touch of vanilla enhances the chocolate flavor in your fudgesicles, making them even more delicious..
How to Make This Bone Broth Fudgesicle Recipe
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the milk, bone broth, cane sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and vanilla. Whisk the ingredients continuously over medium heat to prevent the chocolate from burning.
Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer for approximately one minute, then remove it from the heat.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly before pouring it into popsicle molds. Leave a small space at the top of each mold to allow for expansion. Insert popsicle sticks into the mold and place it in the freezer to let them freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or until solid.
Once fully frozen, remove the fudgesicles from the molds by pushing up on the bottoms. Running warm water over the outside of the mold can help release the fudgesicles.
Serve and Enjoy!
