Summertime is in full force in the US, full of hot days and memories of summer camp! Camp Reboot is just around the corner so I decided to take a classic summer camp juice and change it up with a healthy, fresh spin that’s refreshing with a big boost of antioxidants. The cup of whole strawberries in this juice has more vitamin C than an orange! Not to mention other important antioxidants abundant in this juice like anthocyanin, quercetin and ellagic acid. Ellagic acid from berries may even help keep you looking young by reducing or preventing wrinkles caused by sun exposure.
“Bug” Juice was something I never quite understood but drank sometimes as a kid at camp – it was bright red and full of added colors and sugars; things that can zap energy and hinder health. This Summer Camp Juice uses only fresh fruits and their natural phytonutrients for its bright colors and sweet taste. Sometimes there is foam on top of juice – I like to leave that on and drink it too. The foam may contain protein and other nutrients. You can also add romaine lettuce to get in your leafy green nutrients!
I’m very excited for Camp Reboot! I can’t wait to meet Rebooters coming from around the world to juice, learn about their personal health and wellness, de-stress and of course have lots of fun!
