5 Summertime Recipes Made With Bone Broth

 

Sweltering heat and summer sun may not have you immediately craving a mug of steaming broth, but warmer weather doesn’t have to keep you from reaping the numerous health benefits of organic bone broth. Thanks to naturally occurring collagen and amino acids, consuming bone broth has been linked to improving digestive health issues such as leaky gut syndrome, supporting joint function, promoting healthy skin and hair, and boosting the immune system. 

Don’t skip out on the nutritional benefits of bone broth – this superstar ingredient can be easily incorporated into a variety of summertime favorites, from tasty sides to smoothies. Here are five delicious ways to add bone broth into your warm weather repertoire:


1. Almond Butter & Berry Bone Broth Smoothie

Pro-tip from the bone broth experts: buy your broth in bulk (psst–you can find our 50oz broth bottles at Costco for $9.99) and freeze in an ice cube tray for easy individual portions. Pop them into a smoothie for a nourishing morning pick-me-up.
