Mixed Berries with Honey

Today’s Try This Tuesday recipe is so incredibly simple, and yummy, that I wondered why I had not tried this before. I’ve declared this week Berry Week, for the blog posts, as I participate in a Berry Challenge on Instagram during the month of July. Created by Anthony William, the Medical Medium, the purpose of the Berry Challenge is to encourage and inspire people to eat berries every day.

It’s achieving its purpose!

I’ll post about the health benefits of these little superfoods on Friday. Today I’m sharing this easy recipe from Anthony, who has been posting lots of ideas for incorporating more berries into our lives

Mixed Berries with Honey

1/2 cup of strawberries, quartered

1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries, thawed

1/2 cup raspberries

1/2 cup blackberries

1 – 2 tablespoons raw organic honey

Gently combine berries with honey. Makes 2 servings.

Mixed Berries with Honey

So simple! I didn’t have raspberries so I increased strawberries to one cup. Any combination of berries can be used. All are beneficial, so pick your favorites and mix them up. Use locally produced raw organic honey, to receive health benefits that are specifically geared toward you.

I typically eat berries, and I do eat them everyday, without any sweetener at all, so I wondered if adding honey would make them taste too sweet. It didn’t! The honey added a rich warm taste that was just right. This would be a great alternative for those who are accustomed to adding refined sugar to their berries.

Honey coated berries can be eaten as is, added to a smoothie bowl, or…my favorite…used to top a bowl of frozen banana nice cream. Oh my…what a wonderful, and healthy, summer treat!
