Bone Broth - How To Drink It

Updated: Apr 6


Bone broth is always my go-to whenever I feel a cold coming on or when I just need to give our digestive system a break after a weekend of indulgence. This sipping broth always hits the spot and is super nourishing - I feel healthier with each sip. While I usually make it for a light lunch or dinner, I will unabashedly drink it for breakfast often during the cool winter months out of a steaming mug. Mmm! It's just delicious.


Technically, you can buy and drink any bone broth off the shelf after heating it, but I like to doctor mine up with a little added flavor. The below recipe is what I typically always do, with the optional items being more elaborate additions, for when I'm truly sick (give me alllll of the garlic or ginger!), or if I am sitting down and spooning the broth, I'll add cubed avocado. Typically, I drink bone broth straight from a mug or put it in a to-go mug and take it on the road, just as I would a coffee.


My favorite bone broths on the market right now are Bonafide Provisions (which you can usually find in the frozen section at most grocery stores - Whole Foods always has it), as well as the Trader Joe's brand (which is in the refrigerated section near the salads).


Serves 1-2

24 oz (1 bag) chicken or beef bone broth (Bonafide Provisions)

1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar

1/2 Tbs. ghee (we really like Fourth & Heart original flavor)

2 Tbs. lemon juice (about 1 lemon)

Salt + Pepper to taste


1/2 an avocado, cubed (optional)

1 cube of raw ginger (optional)

1 clove of garlic, minced (optional)


Heat entire bag of bone broth in a saucepan over medium heat. Once it's boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and add ACV, ghee, lemon, salt + pepper, garlic and ginger (if using). Gently mix, and let cook for a few more minutes to let the flavors meld. Put broth into a bowl or a mug and, if using, top with avocado. Enjoy!
