There is nothing that celebrates summer more than all the luscious fruit that is coming in! I keep forgetting that honey can be used in anything and everything and this is one of our favorite ways to eat honey, especially for fighting allergies. So, I wanted to show how easy it is just to add a little bit of honey to the diet. It not only boosts the immune system, but it is super easy to use! I toss the apples and bananas in the honey and orange/ lemon juice to keep them from browning and to add a little extra flavor to the recipe.
¼ cup- blueberries
1 mandarin orange
2 Tbsp. Pecans
2 Tbsp. Walnuts
2 Tbsp. of orange juice or lemon juice
¼ cup of apples
½ of a banana
Wash the blueberries and put them in a bowl, then slice up the strawberries into quarter slices and place them in the bowl, next slice the grapes and mandarin orange into halves (since they are small you can keep them whole too) and place them the bowl. Smash the walnuts and pecans into bite sized pieces and add them to the fruit bowl.
In a separate bowl; mix the orange or lemon juice and the honey together thoroughly and put a side.
Take the apple and cut it into bite sized pieces and place in the honey sauce, then slice up the banana, and add it to the apples and honey sauce. Toss together lightly coating all pieces of fruit.
Add the apples and bananas to the other fruit lightly toss again and serve! ENJOY!
-Try using honeyville’s raspberry whipped honey to add some extra flavor
-Take out the pecans and walnuts and try with sunflower seeds
