Sweet | Fresh PassionHoney Lemonade

90 degrees and hardly any humidity...I (as an Oregonian) would consider that hot. As opposed to my friend in Virginia who would say that is a very nice temperature. On "hot" days like today I decided to make some freshly squeezed lemonade.

What you need:
1/2 cup PassionHoney
1 1/2 cups steaming hot water
1 cup fresh lemon juice {4-5 lemons, depending on size}
Ice cubes for serving

How you do it:
  • In a heatproof 1-quart pitcher or bowl, combine the PassionHoney and hot water and stir until the honey is dissolved.
  • Stir in the lemon juice.
  • Add in ice cubes (About 2 cups)
  • Let cool for at least 10 minutes or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Pour into ice-filled glasses.
  • Drink up!

If you need it a little sweeter add in a little more honey. Enjoy!

Summer | PassionHoney Smoothie

Ohh the fresh fruits are tasting so good this year! Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and now Blackberries! For this smoothie recipe it really depends on what taste you like best. If you like a more blueberry taste, add some more in and take something else out. :-) You can do that with any of the ingredients! I used a mixed pack of frozen fruit for this smoothie, but fresh fruit tastes much better. If you use fresh fruit, put in a little ice to make it thicker. If you are using frozen fruit, no need to add ice.

Also, if you like it thicker add in more fruit. If you like it thinner, take out some. Hope you enjoy this recipe!

If you have a summer recipe that uses honey let me know and we'll give it a try!
