A Healthy Twist on a Holiday Classic: Bone Broth Hot Chocolate

Written by Meaghan MacLean

‘Tis the season for sipping on a warming treat! 

Give this nourishing, tasty spin on a classic winter drink a try. For those of you who don’t love bone broth, don’t worry, you can hardly taste it in this recipe. 

Bone broth is rich in vitamins and minerals and full of easily usable proteins that support your hormones and thyroid. It also helps protect the gut lining and reduces inflammation! Don’t write it off until you’ve tried it. It’s delicious!
