Once Summertime is in full force (here in the US), the long hot days bring back memories of summer camp. So I decided to take a classic summer camp juice and change it up with a fresh, healthy, spin. 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.
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 some leafy green nutrients.
