We love recipes that substitute white sugar with raw honey as a sweetener.  Here is one we found in O Magazine that does just that.

Ingredients

  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 4 cups half-and-half
  • ¾ cup plus 3 Tbsp. raw honey, divided
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 3 eggs plus 4 egg yolks
  • 3 very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed well with a fork (about 1¼ cups)
  • 6 cups 1 bread cubes (lightly packed), such as a rustic country loaf
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Directions

Active time: 30 minutes
Total time: 2 ½ hours

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 9-inch x 13-inch baking pan or glass dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together half-and-half, ¾ cup raw honey, cinnamon, salt, eggs and yolks, and bananas until well incorporated. Stir in bread and set aside to let soak 15 minutes.

Transfer to prepared pan and spread out evenly. Bake until firm in the middle and golden brown around the edges, 45 to 55 minutes. Set aside to let cool, about 1 hour.

In a clean, large bowl, whisk cream and remaining 3 Tbsp. raw honey until soft peaks form. Serve bread pudding with whipped cream dolloped on top.

Immune Boosting Turmeric Lassi

2 large or 4 small glasses

2 cups organic yogurt with active live culture
2 bananas
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
2 tsp raw honey (we recommend Bloom White Clover or Orange Blossom)
1/2 lemon, juice
2 tsp rosehip powder (optional but delicious, and a good C-vitamin boost)
1 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla
3-4 tsp ground turmeric (or fresh turmeric root)
4-5 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix on high speed until smooth. Add more yogurt if you prefer. Pour the lassi in two large glasses. For a more stunning presentation, dust 1 tsp ground turmeric on top before serving. Add a straw and serve.
