    Love this recipe! Have been trying to get my picky toddler to increase her protein intake and was very skeptical, but I needed bone broth for a dinner recipe so bought some Kettle and Fire chicken bone broth and figured I’d try this as well. Wow, if I didn’t add the bone broth myself I wouldn’t believe it was in there! You don’t taste it at all! More importantly, my toddler didn’t taste it either and happily drank a cup. Was easy and quick to make as well.
