My daughter is obsessed with Princesses… and when I was looking to create a Vitamin C rich smoothie for her one day, to boost her immune system, we came up with this version together. I asked her what she wanted to name in and she chose “Sleeping Beauty”. This Princess sure gets enough sleep and I imagine would have perfectly glowing skin because of it. Well now we can drink this Vitamin C rich drink in Sleeping Beauty’s honor and it will not only keep the common cold away, but also smooth out our complexion.
A study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that higher levels of Vitamin C intake were associated with a lower likelihood of wrinkles, dry skin and a more youthful appearance.
Citrus fruit and kale are a match made in heaven… no really. The Vitamin C rich oranges, camu camu berries and strawberries help with the absorption of the plethora of Calcium found in Kale. Dr. Christine Horner in her spectacular book “Radiant Health Ageless Beauty” reveals that one single cup of kale holds more Calcium than a glass of milk.
Juice of 2 freshly squeezed oranges (1- 1 ½ cups)
½ cup of frozen strawberries
1 cup of loosely packed kale
1 cup of ice
1 teaspoon Camu Camu Powder
Combine all the ingredients in a powerful blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. And that’s it. Simple as that. Enjoy!
I like to get as much nutrients from food as possible. This recipe uses Camu Camu Powder, made from the wild berries of the same name that grow in the Amazon. This berry is world famous for being the food source with the highest levels of Vitamin C in the world.
