Description

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.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp 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 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp camu camu powder
  • 12 handfuls ice cubes

Instructions

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

Notes

  • 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 | Well.ca.  Camu camu powder: Amazon | Well.ca
