Manuka Honey Smoothies for 2019

Holidays are over and it’s time to get your body back on track with your exercise routine. Replenish your active muscles with these 3 healthy and tasty smoothies.

Protein Smoothie

Some researchers claim that protein-rich foods containing amino acids may speed muscle recovery. This delicious smoothie is great after a workout at the gym:

  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon Manuka Honey
  • Mix ingredients in a blender until smooth

Invigorating Juice Smoothie

Research from the U.K. suggests that antioxidant-rich fruits such as cherries, berries and grapes may help relieve muscle soreness. Add a little Manuka Honey for anti-inflammatory and probiotic value. Try this smoothie after a long endurance workout such as a bike ride:

  • 3/4 cup tart cherry (or pomegranate juice) 
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Concord grape juice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • A little Manuka Honey
  • Combine ingredients in a blender. Add ice and a little Manuka Honey to taste  

Busy Bee Smoothie

Manuka Honey does double duty after a workout. It may help athletes who use energy in short, intense bursts to maintain optimal blood sugar levels. It also may help in muscle recovery post-training.

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Manuka Honey +5
  • A little ice
  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth
