Made with apples, BlenditUp’s Bee Free Honey is sweet and fruity, making it a perfect replacement for traditional honey.

Price

Starting at $13 for 12 ounces, BlenditUp Bee Free Honey is more expensive than traditional honey by nearly $7 to $10, depending on the brand. However, the price is comparable to that of other vegan honey brands like Mellody and Open Coconut.

Texture

This honey delivers a really great texture. It’s thick and viscous and works perfectly as a vegan honey replacement.

EV’s Take: A Sweet, Sticky Plant-Based Alternative to Honey

Do you love honey? Whether you consume honey or abstain from it is completely a personal choice. If you are at the point in your vegan journey where you’d like to consider some alternatives, this review of BlenditUp vegan honey may be helpful for you!

While there is always a lot of buzz in the vegan community about whether to include honey in a vegan diet, exploring alternatives is always worthwhile. Particularly if traditional methods employ practices that harm living creatures.

In general, many vegans agree that honey does not belong in a vegan diet since so many signs point to the production and collection of honey as harmful to the hives of bees working so hard to produce it. We’ll be releasing an article that dives into the world of honey soon!

BlenditUp has crafted a gorgeous vegan honey from apples. The apples bring in a really delicious fruity flavor, making this an ideal 1:1 substitute for honey. You can replace traditional honey in any recipe with this vegan honey alternative.

What is BlendItUp Bee Free Honey made from?

BlenditUp vegan honey has a very short ingredient list.

Organic apple juice concentrate, organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice concentrate.

That’s it! Three little ingredients give you a sweet, sticky, cruelty-free syrup that you can use anywhere you use honey. How nifty is that?

How has Exploring Vegan used this vegan honey?

I’ve used BlenditUp’s vegan honey to sweeten my vegan yogurt bowls, smoothies, dressings, sauces, glazes, and soups.

Equipment

Ingredients

Potatoes and chickpeas:

Lemon-dill sauce:

  • 1 large lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1–2 teaspoons sugar or maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt

Asparagus:

Instructions

Make the potatoes and chickpeas:

  • Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a wide pot over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 3–5 minutes.
  • Add the chickpeas, capers, Dijon mustard, and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil and stir to combine the mustard with the liquid. Reduce the heat to medium-low and rapid-simmer for 30–45 minutes or until the liquid reduces significantly. Adjust the heat as needed if the liquid reduces too quickly or not quickly enough.
  • The finished result should be thick and stewy as the chickpeas and potatoes begin to break down. You should be left with about 1 cup liquid in the pot. Taste and season periodically, but be mindful of the salt, as the dish will become saltier as it reduces.

Make the lemon-dill sauce:

  • Combine the lemon juice, dill, parsley, extra virgin olive oil, and sugar in a bowl. Whisk until the sugar dissolves and the ingredients are well combined. Taste and add a pinch of salt.

Cook the asparagus:

  • Arrange the asparagus on a baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to the oven and roast for 8–10 minutes, flipping once midway through cooking. Remove from the oven and set aside.

To serve:

  • Spoon the potatoes and chickpeas onto a large serving platter. Arrange the asparagus on top. Drizzle a few tablespoons of lemon-dill sauce over the dish, serving the remaining sauce at the table. Enjoy!

You can buy their honey on Amazon for $15 or directly from the BlenditUp website for $13. From what I can tell, it is only available online and doesn’t appear to be in any retailers near me.
