1 cup 100% apple juice
1 tsp. camu camu
1 cup frozen organic blueberries
6 organic strawberries
Handful of ice (if berries are not frozen)
Put all ingredients in the blender and process until smooth, approximately 1 minute.
Camu Camu: “there's no food on the planet with a higher concentration of vitamin C than the camu berry. How high a concentration? Consider this: oranges are generally known for their high vitamin C content. However, oranges often only have around 1,000 ppm of vitamin C. Sometimes they can have as high as 3,000 or 4,000, but that's unusual, especially given the way they are commercially grown today. The camu berry can have concentrations as high as 50,000 ppm or about 2 g of vitamin C per 100 g of fruit. That means that the camu berry provides 50 times more vitamin C than an orange (on an ounce-for-ounce basis)”.
“The camu camu berry contains powerful phytochemicals, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, which help build protein and repair our muscles. Camu camu powder is rich in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body and has protective antioxidant effects. It is also a good source of calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamin”.
