I was curious about camu camu after reading about its antioxidant properties, and it’s high content of essential amino acids and Vitamin C ( apparently it has 60 times more vitamin c than an orange).
Unfortunately in Barcelona I couldnt find the fruit itself, so I got the powder instead to add to smoothies and desserts. The taste is somewhat bitter so I wouldnt recommend you use it in your baking but it does blend well in nanacreams, juices and smoothies.
If you’re curious about camu camu, here’s a fun & easy overnight oats recipe you can try:
- – 1c pineapple
- – 1 banana
- – 2 tsp coconut blossom sugar
- – 1/2 c nut mylk
- – 2 tsp cranberry power
- – 1 tbsp almond butter (optional)
- Blend everything together until smooth. Top with your favourite things!
