Bone Broth Protein Uses

By Jill Levy

Bone Broth Protein (BBP) powder can save you hours of time that you’d otherwise use to prepare traditionally made broth over a stove, providing you with the same valuable nutrients but with much less effort. 

While you might associate bone broth with only savory recipes like soups and stews, or perhaps smoothies and shakes if you’re familiar with using flavored Bone Broth Protein, our products can actually be used in a lot of really delicious and unexpected ways.

When people try our Bone Broth Protein powders for the first time, they’re often surprised how flavorful but not overpowering they taste, and that they have a smooth, non-gritty texture. 

Considering how versatile BBP can be — you can use it when baking, in your tea or coffee in the morning, and to make dozens of other sweet and savory recipes — it’s time to think beyond just your cup and blender!

7 Popular Ways to Use Bone Broth Protein 

1. Hummus With BBP Pure

The great thing about our Bone Broth Protein Pure powder is that it has a very neutral, practically flavorless taste, making it a great way to boost the protein content of recipes that you don’t want to alter the taste of too much.

2. Soup With BBP Pure

Just like in our hummus recipe, BBP in soups doesn’t overpower the taste, yet it boosts the nutrient content considerably. 


    If you do want to add a warm, savory flavor to soups and stews (or even to warm water seasoned with salt and pepper), try our Bone Broth Protein Turmeric, which has the added benefit of providing antioxidants like curcumin.

    3. Freezer Fudge With BBP Salted Caramel

    Since bone broth powder first became available in sweet-flavored formulas, people have loved to add it to unexpected recipes like muffins, pancakes, fudge and other desserts to increase the protein content.

      This recipe for Keto Freezer Fudge features Keto Protein, but you could easily do a non-keto swap and use Bone Broth Protein Chocolate or Bone Broth Protein Salted Caramel. And don’t worry, you won’t taste any chicken or other savory flavors!

      4. Adding It to Coffee 

      If you prefer a simple and super fast way to consume BBP, try adding a "sweet" flavor such as vanilla or chocolate to your coffee. When mixed with almond, cashew or coconut milk, it’s delicious and creamy in a variety of hot and cold drinks. 


        If you prefer iced coffee, blend BBP Chocolate or BBP Vanilla with your favorite milk and chill overnight, then serve over ice. We also love frothing these kinds of BBP in coffee drinks and desserts to give it a whipped-latte-like feel. 

        5. Using It In Smoothies and Shakes

        Our Bone Broth Protein Chocolate powder features a creamy, rich flavor and reminds us of a chocolate milkshake without all of the excess sugar. It doesn’t have a chalky or gritty taste, and besides adding creaminess you’ll hardly notice the addition of protein powder. 


          Try BBP flavors like Bone Broth Protein Vanilla, BBP Chocolate or Bone Broth Protein Nitro Beet and Strawberry in your favorite healthy smoothies, including before or after workouts to help provide your muscles with energy.

          6. Making Health-Focused Hot Chocolate

          Our chocolate flavored BBP powder can be enjoyed in your morning smoothie or combined with warm coconut, cashew or almond milk for a healthy homemade hot cocoa.

          We recommend mixing one heaping scoop in 12 ounces of water, nut milk or a smoothie for extra protein while adding a sweet, chocolate flavor. 


            7. Baking and Other Sweets
