Camu Camu Berry Lemonade Quencher
Robyn Lilley

Did you know that 1 tsp of Camu Camu berry powder contains 12 times the recommended daily intake of vitamin C?  It is low glycemic and has an incredibly high ORAC value.  This is a high vibrational superfood!  It has a tangy slightly sharp taste, so it is easier consumed when it is sweetened with a high quality natural sweetener such as maple syrup or honey.  For this recipe, I chose maple syrup because I love the flavour of maple syrup, and a few drops of stevia gives it an extra punch of sweetness to counteract the tart flavour of the camu camu berry.  This is a lemonade to drink when you need an extra pick-me-up, when you are coming down with a cold, or if you have a big day the next day and you want to shine your brightest!

1 tbsp camu camu berry powder
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp maple syrup (the good stuff…no Aunt Jamima here!)
1 litre filtered water
2 drops liquid stevia

Blend all ingredients in a blender. Add ice if desired.  Serve in your favourite, prettiest glass.  Enjoy!
