Amp Up Nutrition With A Summer Smoothie

Two glasses of blueberry smoothie on blue colored wooden table

Barbecues, cookouts and travelling mean the warmer months are often crammed with food that’s of little nutritional value. While depriving yourself of seasonal treats will make you feel like you’re missing out, you can improve your overall health by balancing these indulgences with a nutrient-packed smoothie.

You’ll find a wallop of antioxidants, protein and sweet berry taste in this beautiful blueberry smoothie. Just make sure you take a close look at the label when choosing the ingredients to get a tastier and healthier drink. Check that your honey is 100 per cent Canadian for a sweet, delicate taste and high-quality refreshment.

“When you buy pure Canadian honey, you know it was produced to the highest food safety standards and can feel confident feeding it to your family,” explains Shannon Bowden of Bee Maid Honey. Every time you make a purchase, it also supports our country’s beekeepers and farmers who rely on bees to pollinate their crops.
