Load up on vitamin C the natural way with this refreshing Vitamin C Powerhouse Smoothie recipe. This immune boosting smoothie is packed full of delicious vitamin C rich ingredients.


  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 whole, peeled seedless orange
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 whole peeled guava (or 1 cup pineapple) *see notes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon camu camu powder
  • 12 handfuls ice cubes


  1. Soften goji berries: Soak goji berries in the 1/2 cup of water for 5-10 minutes (to soften).
  2. Add ingredients to blender: Put all ingredients into a high speed blender (including the goji berry soaking water).
  3. Blend: Blend on high until smooth.


  • Guava Note:  Guava is really high in vitamin C but it can be difficult to find depending on where you live.  If you can’t find guava (or are not a fan), just substitute it for some chopped up pineapple.  The smoothie will still pack a Vitamin C punch.
  • Adjust to your preferred consistency:  If the smoothie is too thin, add in some more ice.  If it is too thick, pour in a touch more water.
  • Find goji berries and camu camu powder at your local health food store or online.  Goji berries: Amazon |  Camu camu powder: Amazon |
