Creamed Spinach

Ingredients

  • 2 oz baby spinach
  • 1 cup parsnip - chopped
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 tsp camu camu powder
  • 2 tbsp raw cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

We’ve taken a different approach to this holiday side dish, making it sweet rather than savory. But… the taste isn’t the only sweet thing about it. This smoothie, thanks to the addition of parsnip and banana, is chock-full of fiber, folate, potassium  and Vitamin C. But hold on- the real stand-out ingredient is the camu camu. This fruit is a natural energy booster, a superfood with anti-viral properties that can help with cold sores, herpes, shingles, and the common cold. Think about it; who wants to be sick for the holidays? No one. Creamed spinach is no longer a sideliner, but the main event.

Camu Camu is so nice, you have to say it twice. Try these vitamin C packed smoothies next: Orange Camu Camu or the Candied Carrot Tops.
