Honey will you bee mine? What is a bee’s favorite type of hair cut? A buzz cut!
Oh man, you gotta love a good bee joke. Why the bee jokes? you may be asking. Well, I have got another exciting collab with another amazing local business coming at ya right here! To create this amazing smoothie recipe I have collaborated with Drizzle Honey who so graciously supplied me with the honeycomb to elevate the taste and health benefits of this smoothie bowl. Drizzle is a local company that supplies us with the best tasting and quality of honey along with supporting local farmers and keeping the Canadian honey industry buzzing. Their products are raw and lightly filtered so all the wonderful benefits we get from eating real honey still remain. You can purchase yourself a jar of their carefully crafted honey online or catch them around the city at local pop up markets!

Fig season is dawning on us and you better believe that I will be buying up figs like nobody’s business until the season is over. I love me some figs! I didn’t want this smoothie to be just any ol’ regular smoothie bowl, I wanted it to capture the vibes of summer by featuring fresh and seasonal ingredients to nourish our tastebuds and tummies. So, if you are diggin’ fig season and summer as much as I am, start your day with one of these amazing bowls!
