1) HONEY AND TEA
One or two teaspoons of rich, pure Greek honey per cup is always a good addition to our tea, according to our preferences of course. Here’s a tip:
Make sure to add the honey after the leaves have had a chance to steep (~10min later) and the water has cooled slightly.
If the water is too hot, it can vanish the phytochemicals we’re after in the first place and alter the honey’s taste, making it slightly bitter.And keep in mind that, because herbal tea has no caffeine, you can drink as much -warm or cold- as you want every day!!!
2) HONEY IN YOGURT
Simplicity is perfection, and we refer to creamy Greek yogurt drizzled with sweet rich honey and sprinkled with crispy walnuts, dried fruits, cereals and anything else you might think, like or imagine!
Greek yogurt with raw, Greek honey is a literally 2 min recipe no-bake – little treat suitable for every time of the day, as a delicious breakfast, snack or light dessert or simply as the perfect way to finish off that hearty meal! Amazingly quick and easy recipe but also incredibly nutritious, as it combines three super healthy ingredients, including a huge range of the Mediterranean cuisine.
3) HONEY AND CEREALS / GRANOLA
A real Booster as a topping that your yogurt, milk, green salad, by itself -or however you can imagine- actually needs. Oats – rich in fiber, Nuts – a great source of protein, Fruit – provides more fiber and plenty of vitamins, Greek, pure Honey – an amazing nutritious and tasty natural sweetener instead of refined sugar.
We really can’t think anything more healthy, tasty, nutritious, rich and beautiful, more suitable to combine with.

From pancakes to smoothie bowls, from a slice of bread to a bowl of yogurt, there are plenty of options to fit any type of breakfast to help you start your day off right.
The idea is to incorporate raw honey into a healthy, balanced diet…and breakfast is no exception! Pure all-natural Greek honey is a great, tastier and mighty nutritious substitute for processed sugar, and we’d better take an advantage of it.
6) HONEY IN SALADS AS VINAIGRETTE
Such a simple, flavorful vinaigrette is the ultimate dressing for any kind of green salad and not only.
Combining rich, pure Greek honey with balsamic vinegar, mustard, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper in the analogies you prefer, you enrich the taste of your salad, roasted vegetables and anything else you can imagine, to a superlative degree that any chef would envy.
7) HONEY IN MARINADE
It is well known that honey helps to extend the shelf life of the marinade. Due to its preservative properties, honey can help marinades last longer and at the same time it adds the perfect amount of sweetness.
Simply add the appropriate amount of honey to your favorite mix! Combine it with Soy, Garlick, Sesame, Olive oil, Onion, Mustard, Herbs, everything (!!!), and you do your magic to anything might touch your grill or get into your oven. Remember! The richest (pure Greek honey), the better.
8) HONEY IN COCKTAILS
Honey’s rich viscosity and distinctive taste provide a magical sweetener compared to sugar, giving a depth of flavour that the white stuff cannot deliver. It’s a fresh twist on cocktails that day by day is taking its place in the most sophisticated recipes.
“Using honey in modern cocktail mixing is a simple way to coax the rich organic history of flavour from even the most rarified firewater.” Golden nectar has been a valuable ingredient in craft cocktails since their early days, and there’s always a great reason for that.
9) HONEY IN A RECIPE WHICH IS A WHOLE CHAPTER BY IT SELF
Apart from the rest ideas regarding – I would say – the “any kind of recipes”, I will give you a tip that I, as a pure Greek and a lover of delicious and easy dishes, adore. So, make a note:
Take a slice of feta cheese a bit less than1 cm thick, wrap it in a pie crust, fry it until it gets the right color and when it’s done, put it on a plate, add some sesame seeds and spread honey on top.
This is where all other Greek flavors bow to the perfection of the 5-minute cooking time (according to my taste buds). I take an oath though that you will definitely remember me. Of course, there are so many ways to enjoy the above products, we just, as friends, give you some ideas and some solutions. You, investigate even further and for anything you are not too sure about, ask the experts.
