glass jar with fresh bone broth

Have you heard about the health benefits of bone broth but have been hesitant to try it? After all, simmered bone juice doesn't exactly scream, "Party in your mouth!" 😜

Or maybe you've been sipping bone broth for months or even years. You know it's not the most glamorous cocktail, but this golden elixir is a nutritional powerhouse that nourishes your body from the inside out.

So the million-dollar question becomes: How can you make bone broth taste better?

Though it's been around for centuries, bone broth boasts a surprising amount of flavor potential that's waiting to be explored. So let's dish about how to make bone broth taste SO good you'll be wondering where it's been all your life.


Bone broth is a rich, savory stock made by simmering animal bones and cartilage for 12–18+ hours. This slow, steady process extracts collagen, amino acids, essential minerals, and other vital nutrients from the bones. The result? A rich, savory broth packed with ancestral health wisdom.

Bone broth is a wellness staple for everyone, from seasoned enthusiasts to beginners. It offers way more perks for your health than collagen peptides alone. Science shows bone broth may support: 

  • BETTER IMMUNITY. The amino acids in bone broth may help boost your immune system, making you less susceptible to those pesky sniffles.[*][*]
  • GUT HEALTH. The collagen in bone broth helps soothe and heal your gut lining, which can support better digestion, optimal gut health, and overall well-being.[*][*]
  • HYDRATION AND OPTIMAL ELECTROLYTE BALANCE. Bone broth contains electrolytes like sodium, magnesium, and potassium to ensure peak mental and physical performance and prevent dehydration, especially after a workout.[*]
  • BONE AND JOINT HEALTH. Collagen is a major component of cartilage, so bone broth can help keep your joints happy and healthy.[*][*]  The amino acids, glucosamine, and chondroitin in bone broth may also relieve pain and stiffness.[*][*]

So now that you're dialed into the top bone broth benefits, you're probably wondering:


Bone broth generally has a mild, savory, umami flavor and a pleasant aroma. It's not as intensely flavorful as a seasoned soup broth because it's technically the backbone of that finished product.

Like any food, the taste of bone broth varies depending on how it's made. Quality and time matter here. Delicious mugs start with the highest-quality bone broth ingredients — like grass-fed beef bones, pasture-raised chicken bones, and organic veggies, herbs, and spices. The process also can't be rushed.

Good bone broth has more body than stock due to the naturally occurring collagen and gelatin. It should even gel when chilled — the only tangible way to measure the presence of collagen. Anything else is a compromise.

Though many people dig bone broth on their first try, it can be a bit of an acquired taste for others. 


What happens if it's not love at first sip? No worries! You can train your tastebuds to enjoy the flavor of bone broth with a few simple palate-hacking tips.


Chicken broth is an ideal starting point if you're new to bone broth. It often has a familiar, comforting flavor reminiscent of your Grandma's chicken noodle soup.


Experts say consistent daily repetition is the biggest factor influencing whether a behavior becomes a habit or part of your automatic daily routine.[*]

So, if you want to build a healthy bone broth practice (and eventually make your way to a bone broth cleanse!), start slowly and be consistent. Give your tastebuds time to understand and savor this new, complex bone broth flavor profile. 

Game plan: Take one sip daily for one week. Then, progress to two sips every day. On the third week, set your sights on drinking 1/4 cup of bone broth each day. Bump that up to 1/2 cup the next week, and so on, until you're sipping one cup daily (or more!).


This brothy brew isn't just for drinking! The savory taste of bone broth makes a fantastic base for your favorite recipes — from soups, stews, and sauces to mashed potatoes, overnight oats, and popsicles (really!).

You'll either mask the flavor of bone broth until you get used to it or start to realize the incredible depth it adds to your culinary creations and fall in love.

So, you've grown accustomed to your daily bone broth habit? You even like it on its own now? You must be glowing from the inside out! ✨

But consuming something every day can still get boring over time — no matter how good it is for you. So now you need a few expert tricks to take your bone broth game from Vitamin Meh to OMG, YUM!

These hacks add variety, double down on flavor, and upgrade your entire bone broth experience:


Like any good recipe, you can season bone broth with a little extra salt or pepper to enhance its natural flavors. Nuanced notes you may have missed before may take center stage on your tongue, making it feel like a whole new recipe.

The same goes for swirling in healthy fats! Fat equals flavor, adding a luxurious richness to your broth to raise it from good to gourmet. Just warm up one tablespoon of a healthy fat from this list and combine it with your broth:

  • Grass-fed butter or ghee
  • Coconut oil or MCT oil
  • Beef tallow
  • Avocado oil
  • Extra virgin olive oil

These fatty, healthy additions to bone broth also make it more filling and satiating. See ya, afternoon snack raid!


Think beyond the usual salt and pepper and let your inner chef shine with these easy bone broth add-ins:

  • HERBS. 🌿 Whether dried or fresh from your garden, the best bone broth herbs make each mug a new adventure. Think: rosemary, thyme, parsley, bay leaves, oregano, sage, tarragon, and even lavender. The possibilities are endless!
  • SPICES. 🌶️ For an extra kick in the flavor department, consider tossing in spices for bone broth like ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper, chili flakes, crushed red pepper flakes, curry powder, coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, and more!
  • AROMATICS. ♨️ Saute fresh or warm up leftover garlic, onions, carrots, mushrooms, fennel, leeks, etc., then mix them into your broth. You'll score warm, savory, deeply satisfying aromas and flavors in each sip.
  • ACID. 🍋  A squeeze of lemon or lime juice or a splash of vinegar (we're partial to apple cider vinegar!) brightens up the flavor and cuts through any richness.


Making bone broth taste better doesn't have to take forever. Leverage your fridge or pantry staples to make the magic of customization happen in a flash. Add a splash of these sauces to unlock a new dimension of flavor:

  • Hot sauce
  • Dijon mustard
  • Gochujang
  • Sriracha
  • Miso paste
  • Soy sauce
  • Pesto
  • Chimichurri
  • Harissa paste


Mixing in your favorite sauces or adding herbs and spices to bone broth delivers a touch of magic. But if you really want to make bone broth delicious, it's all about combining these flavors to take your taste buds on a culinary adventure.
