Delicious Low Carb Creamy Bulletproof Bone Broth Drink is a perfect chicken flavoured low carb warm beverage that keeps you satiated.
Great for sipping during fasting periods or simply to hold you over in between meals. Made with a powdered bone broth and just a few simple healthy ingredients.
Drinking bone broth not only has many health benefits but I use it as a buffer on fasting days if I need a little something to hold me over without spiking my blood sugars.
If you are like me and fast only for your diabetes, sipping on a creamy bulletproof bone broth still allows the effects of fasting without impacting my insulin levels.
Mind you, if you are fasting for weight loss or autophagy this may not be a fasting tool that you should use and may enjoy it on other occasions.

Why should diabetics drink bone broth?
Drinking bulletproof bone broth is a simple low carb way to consume some fat, protein and collagen all while trying to maintain your blood sugars. Plus it contains glycine which is shown to regulate blood sugar in insulin.
Bone broth is also satiating, may help you to eat less and is rich in vitamins and nutrients including electrolytes like magnesium, sodium and potassium. It also contains collagen which provides the body with amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins.
Can I drink this creamy bulletproof bone broth while fasting?
The fasting gurus will likely tell you to only consume water during a fast but that is mostly for those who want the full benefits of fasting like weight loss, autophagy and to improve emotional and physical health.
While all the benefits of doing an extended fast are great and I have enjoyed extended 3 day fasts only consuming water, I also enjoy fasting with bone broth for those periods where I only want to focus on lowering blood sugars.
Therefore, consuming a low carb creamy bulletproof bone broth drink while fasting is ok by me and still works to maintain blood sugars while also eating low carb.
This keto creamy bulletproof bone broth drink is simply made with a chicken flavoured bone broth powder, some butter and heavy cream.
- Bone Broth Powder: using a bone broth powder makes it a simple and easy drink without having to spend hours simmering bones on the stovetop. However, if you do have liquid bone broth you can use it to make this recipe. My favourite bone broth powder available in Canada is from Organika but there are many brands that carry bone broth powder on Amazon.
- Butter: adding fat to this bone broth drink keeps me satiated and provide long lasting energy without the sugar crash.
- Heavy Cream: giving this nutrient rich drink some creaminess and also adds that yummy froth after blending.
- Salt: most powdered bone broths need some added salt, you may want to add the salt after tasting it to see if it needs it.

- Top Tip: taste the creamy bulletproof bone broth drink before adding salt to see if it is required. Depending on the bone broth powder used, you may not need to add the salt.
