Honey Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are nutritious and easy to make. But did you know that many yogurt-based smoothies are loaded with added sugar? Instead, try these smoothie recipes using honey instead!

Next time you make your favourite smoothie recipe, try sweetening plain yogurt with honey. Not only will it cut out the refined sugar, but will add the antibacterial and antioxidant benefits of raw honey. If you have seasonal allergies, the honey may help with those too!

Here are a few of our favourites.

1. Classic Honey Strawberry Smoothie

Our son's favourite, honey strawberry smoothies are easy and delicious. Local in-season strawberries are best, of course. We are fortunate to grow fresh strawberries on our farm, which we freeze for winter-time smoothies.

1 cup of fresh strawberries (frozen works too)

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

1 tbsp Gees Bees honey

1/2 cup ice

Combine in a blender and pulse until smooth.

For a Strawberry Banana smoothie, add 1/2 a banana. For a Very Berry Smoothie, add some raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc.

2. Clean Green Honey Kiwi Smoothie

For a vitamin boost, these green smoothies are one of our go-to's - packed with goodness from spinach, kiwi, green apple, mint, and honey!
