Bone broth is having a moment and for good reason. This wonder liquid known for its nutritional superpowers is low in calories (about 70 per cup), high in protein (upwards of 16 grams per cup), and low in carbs (less than one gram). It’s also the best whole food source of collagen — the most abundant protein in the body that is also responsible for maintaining our skin’s structure.
In short – bone broth does a body good. But if the thought of sipping soup during the summer isn’t for you, bone broth is a versatile addition to a myriad of recipes — including cocktails!
Read on to learn how to sneak some beauty-boosting collagen into your poolside drinks this summer with recipes from celebrity nutrition expert and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Kellyann Petrucci.
