Do any of you find some awesome deals and buy stuff that you never end up using? That happens to me with food.
I’ve had some superfoods in my cupboard that I had NO idea how to use, so they just sat there looking pretty and super. Until now!
I’ve heard all about the wonders of bee pollen, but I’ve also heard about how nasty it tastes, even in smoothies where you’d think all that kale would mask it. Sunfood’s pollen, however, has gotten rave reviews for its taste, which is great because it means that I can use it to top yogurt, chia pudding or my simple fudge recipe (see below!).
Note: Bee Pollen should NOT be heated which nixes its use in any cooked or baked recipes.
This pollen is also raw, Kosher, non-GMO, and is harvested from super Spanish beekeepers. P.S. Yes, this is the same pollen that is on flower stamens and gets stuck on the bees’ legs. It’s a complete protein and is high in B Vitamins, Vitamins A and C, and Magnesium.
Another Note: If you have allergies to pollen or bees, please talk to your doctor before using bee pollen!
