Antioxidant Fruit Salad with Bee Pollen Recipe

Antioxidants are extraordinarily important when it comes to overall health. They are abundant in richly hued summer fruits, such as berries, plums, peaches and cherries. This fruit salad packs even more of a nutritional punch with the addition of vanilla infused raw honey and bee pollen. Bee products may even help boost energy, treat allergies, power up the immune system, treat skin conditions, and so much more. If you’re new to eating bee pollen, a little goes a long way, so start off with just a few granules and gradually work your way up to a teaspoon.
