January three years ago, I was working at my cafe and it seemed every other person was coming in with just getting over the FLU or with really BAD COLDS. I started feeling funny myself, so I thought how can I boost my immune system before I get sick too. Knowing that camu camu has the highest amount of vitamin C of any food I created the SUPER C ORANGE CREAMSICLE smoothie! It quickly became a favorite at my cafe...parents and kids alike. Here it is for you. Stay healthy this winter.
This smoothie is great for boosting the immune system with 235% of your Daily Value of Vitamin C. Everyone in your family will love it. Kids go nuts over this and you'll know they are getting their full Vitamin C for the day warding off the Flu and Colds and more.
