I just tried this recipe. First off, the flavor was amazing! However, it turned out way too thick to drink. If you make this as a smoothie you might want to add a liquid to thin it out. Or do what I did and eat it with a spoon like an amazing cranberry coconut pudding. I will definitely add this to my list to make again.

This recipe isn't vegan. It's got honey! Replace it with agave nectar, coconut nectar or maple syrup! Why honey isn't vegan: http://www.vegetus.org/honey/honey.htm

This article is just downright silly. Bees create honey for their own food and any beekers who know what they are doing always leave enough honey for the bees to feed on. Bees are not "enslaved" anymore than farmers who grow food for market.
