How To Make Healthy Recipes Of Honey

Honey-roasted almonds

2 cups whole almonds
3 tbsp pure honey
1 tsp rock salt or sea salt

1) Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
2) In a saucepan, warm the honey to liquefy it a bit.
3) Put the almonds in a mixing bowl and pour the honey over it. Mix well, until all the almonds are evenly coated with the honey.
4) Line a baking dish with parchment, and slowly and carefully scatter the almonds all over it, evenly.
5) Sprinkle the salt on top, and bake for around 20 minutes.
6) You will need to take out the baking dish every 2-3 minutes and shake the almonds around, to prevent excessive burning.
7) Once done, store in an airtight jar, and reach for these whenever you need a tasty and addictive, but healthy snack alternative.

Honey-glazed carrots with thyme

200 g baby carrots
5 g butter
1 tbsp honey
100 ml water
1 thyme sprig with leaves picked
Salt, to taste

1) Take a wide pan and shallow pan (to prevent the carrots from layering one on top of the other), and spread out the carrots.
2) Put it on low flame, then add the butter, honey and water. Finally, add the thyme and salt. Cover and cook this over high flame till the carrots are tender and fully coated in the honey butter mix.
3) Remove from the flame, gently mix till the carrots have been coated in the residual syrup at the bottom, tip into a serving platter and serve hot. You can garnish with some extra thyme if you like. This dish is great to have by itself, and also goes well with mains like quinoa and couscous for a complete meal experience.

Burnt honey gelato

2/3 cup honey
½ tsp freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp water
2 egg yolks
1 ½ cups milk
3 sprigs fresh basil
½ tsp salt
½ cup mascarpone cheese

1) In a heavy-bottom saucepan, combine honey, lemon juice and water, simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
2) In another heavy-bottom pot, pour the milk, add the basil sprigs and bring this mix to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes, to allow the flavour to steep. 
3) Remove the basil from the now-flavoured milk and pour in the honey mixture. Whisk well until fully blended.
4) Take a large bowl and start by whisking the egg yolks till you have a smooth consistent mix. Slowly pour the honey-milk mix into the bowl, return the mixture to the heavy-bottom pot, and cook on low flame for another 5 minutes, stirring throughout.
5) Once this is done, strain the mixture into a baking dish through a sieve, and refrigerate until it is set.
6) Finally, churn in an ice cream maker, and serve fresh.

Lip care

Try this honey scrub for nourished and smooth lips

2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (1/2 tbsp if you have oily skin)
1 tbsp brown sugar

1) Whisk the honey and olive oil together in a bowl.
2) Add the sugar spoon by spoon to this mix, stirring gently until you have a smooth evenly coarse paste.
3) Cleanse your lips thoroughly off lip gloss, lipstick and other topical applications, and rinse with lukewarm water. 
4) While the lips are still damp, apply the scrub all over the lip area, including the area surrounding it. Massage in outward, gentle strokes for 3-5 minutes. Leave on for another 10 minutes, and then wash off and pat dry.
5) For best results, repeat at least once a week. The honey cleanses and brightens darkened, dry and damaged lips, while the sugar helps cleanse and dislodge minute particles of grime and dirt.
