Fruit and Honey Smoothie

Super healthy and super easy, this drink makes a great breakfast to go, or a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen fruit. Strawberries, blueberries or mangoes are good options and are sold in the frozen food section of nearly all supermarkets. A fresh banana is also tasty addition that will add a nice thickness to the drink.
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups coconut milk or almond/coconut blend (unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh, chopped ginger (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Add fruit to a good quality blender.
  • Add enough coconut milk to just cover the fruit.
  • Add raw honey (and cinnamon if you want).
  • Blend on medium high until smooth. With fresh fruit, there is more water, so you may need a bit less milk. With frozen fruit, it might be too thick so just add more coconut milk. After a few times, you will learn the correct proportions to get the consistency that you like best.

I have loved honey all my long life, but I have never had any so delicious as Smiley which i have recently discovered. Every day I am finding new uses for it and I’m almost to the point of carrying a bottle of it around in my hip pocket. A true joy of life.

We do not recommend that you microwave honey. Microwaving will kill or degrade all of the good stuff in raw honey (enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antibiotics, etc.). Instead, you should place the bottle or jar in a pan of hot water (around 110 degrees) and shake the bottle every few minutes until fully liquefied. You may need to reheat the water if there is a lot of crystallization in the honey. This method does take longer, but it is the best way to preserve the healthy properties of raw honey.

What can you use to thin honey?. We’ve been microwaving it before mixing it into drinks. Thank you
