Here is a little recipe I threw together purely by necessity. I was hungry and needed a quick healthy snack. They are actually quite good and now I crave them. Actually the idea sprung from a comment in Sarma Melngailis' book Raw Food Real World. (If you don’t own it, buy it! It is a wonderful book). She mentioned she didn’t like the taste of bee pollen mixed into her smoothies, so she would put some on top and eat with a spoon.
- Kefir (I prefer plain and organic, but there are many different brands and flavors that would make a delicious combination).
- Bee Pollen (If you have never eaten bee pollen, you should first make sure you are not allergic and you should also know, it is an acquired taste and you may not initially like it).
- Barlean’s Omega Swirl (flavors pictured: strawberry, pomegranate/blueberry, lemon)
Delicious, easy and so healthy! Surprisingly filling and packed with nutritional benefits, these shooters make a great addition to any meal or between meal snack.
Here are some of the health benefits packed into these pretty little parfaits....
