I was recently sent a jar of Steens Raw 15+ Manuka Honey and challenged to try one of the recipes that Amber Rose has written which are not only healthy but very easy to make.

I chose to make the Immune Booster Super Berrie Smoothies.   Not only was it easy to make but it was incredibly delicious.  Especially the Banana part!  (and I am not normally fond of bananas)

*The Immune Booster Smoothie*
For two
This is a recipe created by Amber Rose.   It's a delicious smoothie containing loads of antioxidants from the blueberries, fibre and potassium from the banana, a brain power boost from the coconut oil and beneficial enzymes from the raw Steens Manuka Honey, with sperior antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.

1 large banana, previously sliced and frozen
300ml of milk ( any kind), plus a little extra (about 1 1/3 cup)
1 tsp raw virgin coconut oil
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
2 tsp raw Steens 20+ raw Manuka Honey
150g of frozen, blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries (any or all) (1 1/2 cups)

Place your banana, milk, coconut oil, vanilla powder and 1 tsp of honey into a high powered blender.  Blitz until completely smooth.  Pour into a jug.

Place the berried into the blender along with 1 tsp honey and 1 or 2 TBS of milk.  Blitz until you have a smooth thick mix.

Take two large glasses.  Spoon the berry mix into the bottom of the glasses.  Use a spoon to run it up and around the sides.  Pour the creamy banana mix into the glasses and enjoy straight away.   Delicious!
