What better way to stave off a cold or flu than to double up on vitamin C! We encourage you to get to know camu camu, which has more natural vitamin C than any other food on planet Earth. This super-tart superfood contains 30 to 60 times more vitamin C than an orange. We order this tart orange powder from Navitas Naturals, but a readily available vitamin package, such Emergen-C, makes a fine substitute. Either way, down this mega C flu-busting blend and put your tissues away.
Makes: 2 ½ cups
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 2 Tsp camu camu powder
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh mango
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen banana, sliced
- Combine the orange juice, water and camu camu powder in a blender. Add the mango, strawberries and banana. Blend until smooth.
