Huney Smoothie with Pine Pollen

Did you know that pine pollen is a superfood? It has many nutritive properties and has been proven as an effective antioxidant that supports our overall health.1 If you’re interested in learning more, please view this video our friends at Harmonic Arts created.

We’re using pine pollen as a replacement for bee pollen in this recipe and maple syrup instead of honey from bees. We believe in choosing health, whole food alternatives to animal products. Did you know you can also help the bees by purchasing organic food? Learn more about how pesticides harm bees by reading How organic farming helps bees. 

Enjoying pine pollen is also a more sustainable nutritive than using bee pollen. Learn more and make the switch.

This smoothie is low glycemic, meaning it’s not going to spike your blood sugar. To learn more about alternative low glycemic sweeteners that are more sustainable than bee honey, check out our ‘Natural Sweeteners’ article.

Pine pollen is also rich in antioxidants and is said to help energize you; getting rid of fatigue.2,3
