Fresh Orange Juice x Camu Camu Powder = Superfood POWERHOUSE.
Camu Camu berry is an EXCELLENT source of Vitamin C, fueling our immune system, skin, and body. Of course, we can’t not give credit to a citrus favorite, as oranges provide this necessary vitamin too! Store-bought orange juice is LOADED with sugar (and in reality – how much orange juice are you REALLY getting from a box?) so I always recommend juicing your own.
Other researched benefits of Camu Camu:
– High in antioxidants
– Supports eye and brain function
– Balances mood
For this recipe I used Sunfood Raw Organic Camu Camu Powder, which provides 365% Daily Value (328.1 mcg) from 1 tsp!!!
- 24 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice (about 5 oranges)
- 2 tsp camu camu powder
- Lemon juice (from 1/2 lemon)
- Combine orange juice, camu camu powder and lemon juice into blender and blend for 15-30 seconds. Pour over ice and enjoy! Makes 2 servings.
