Chewing fresh honeycomb is one of the simple pleasures in life. I’m lucky to have a friend who has access to an active beehive; she sometimes sneaks a plastic container of honeycomb into my work locker. It’s the most beautiful thing to spread over toast, waffles or pancakes, or you can cut off a chunk and chew it until the honey is all gone and you’re left chewing the gummy wax that remains. While Kam prefers to dipose of the wax after a good gnash at it, I always recommend ingesting it – it’s helpful for a number of digestion issues and could help to relieve seasonal allergies and hayfever.

 I don’t always eat the honeycomb whole though as I also like to extract the honey by placing a few chunks in a bowl, crushing them up and then with a little bit of squeezing, pass the mixture through a sieve. This smoothie was made with some of my home-extracted honey and this easy method gives you a honey rich in pollen and propolis – the good stuff! – and leaves behind some wonderful beeswax for cosmetic or craft uses.

Om Nom Ally - Honey Buzz SmoothieThis refreshing smoothie will keep you buzzing for hours with energy boosting honey,  banana and maca powder. Honey is often known as nature’s energy booster and is well known for promoting better blood glucose balance. You don’t need to use honeycomb honey, choose a raw and organic brand of honey. Bananas can give you an instant energy boost as they are rich in carbohydrates and B vitamins (the energy vitamins!). Maca has quickly become known as a fabulous energy booster due to it’s ability to act as an adaptogen and by stimulating the master glands of the body (hypothalamus and pituitary glands). This is a smoothie with a real buzz, perfect for all you busy little bees!

      1. Thanks Ally! 🙂 The cakes are a “sometimes food” – I prefer to eat more like what your site has… Having said that, my cakes are made with Belgian Chocolate, free range eggs and organic vanilla powder.
        I’m having a banana smoothie now… the almond meal is a brilliant addition! Mine is toasted almond meal 🙂

      It’s got such a lovely mouthfeel Natalie! The taste is something quite extraordinary too, there’s something about chewing the honey out instead of using a radial extractor.
      Thanks for the comment!

      Thanks for having me over at Gluten Free Friday Cindy!
      I can’t wait to keep my own bees one day… though if we stay in my current area the council actually doesn’t allow us to keep our own hives. A little rude (and silly) if you ask me!
