Wholesome Chicken Bone Broth

Wholesome Chicken Bone Broth

I like to have a roasted chicken from time to time, and rather than throwing out the carcasses, I will freeze them until I have enough to make a delicious, nutritious and versatile chicken bone broth.

But what if I told you that you can have your ice cream and have it nourish you, too?! My Strawberry-Banana Nice Cream is the perfect treat on a hot summers day, filled with lots of cool nutritious goodness.
