Strawberry Peach Smoothie with Camu Camu Powder

Serves 2

Sweet strawberries come together with juicy peaches and tangy cranberry juice in this refreshing power-smoothie. Camu camu powder is added to the mix for an exotic twist – and an extra dose of vitamin C!

For those who are not familiar with camu camu, this South American fruit is one of the world's most concentrated natural sources of vitamin C (it contains about 40 times as much vitamin C as oranges). Thanks to its exceptionally high vitamin C content and other potential health benefits, camu camu is today available in many health food stores, but you can also buy freeze-dried camu camu powder online.
