This refreshing smoothie combines the power of camu camu, the best known source of vitamin C, with ginger root and lime to provide an immune boosting effect that will shield your body against seasonal illnesses, such as colds and flu. The presence of carrot contributes with betacarotene, a precursor of vitamin A, and spinach provides both vitamin K, for healthy bones, and coenzyme Q10, which aids skin regeneration. This is a great combo for a fresh start every morning!

  1. Add spinach, carrot, ginger, and camu camu powder into a blender
  2. Fill with water, lime juice, and honey
  3. Blend until all ingredients are well combined and have an even consistency
  4. Serve it in cold glasses and enjoy!

Green smoothies are meant to be consumed with all the fiber, which is great for aiding digestion; however, it is possible to strain the mixture to obtain only the liquid.
