Did you know that we would not have ice cream without honeybees? Yep - it's true. Cows eat clover and alfalfa which are both pollinated by honeybees. Cows make milk which we turn into ice cream! Yet another reason why we love our honeybees.
Ice cream sundae's are a sweet way to celebrate honeybees. We turned it up a notch by adding honey caramelized bananas and a creamy, rich chocolate sauce. Try it and let us know what you think. Cheers!
