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)
