5 Ways To Use Raw Camu Camu Powder

What is Camu Camu?

The highest natural form of Vitamin C derived from any fruit…amazing! It’s a potent immune boosting and mood balancing supplement. Sure to put you in a good mood. I would say this is a super super food, major properties include:

·         Phytochemicals
·         Amino Acids
·         Minerals
·         Lots of Vitamin C

Camu Camu is a berry from the rainforests of Peru that is highly, it’s the size of a grape but don’t let that fool you, it provides 50 times more Vitamin C than an orange. Its great for: 

·         Healthy immune system
·         Healthy eyes, gums and skin
·         Energy levels

How to use Camu Camu everyday?

Unless you can go foraging for berries in the Peruvian rainforest, the best way to take Camu is in the raw powder form. Due to its potent properties its not the best tasting and has a very bitter flavour. So here are my recommendations on how to incorporate Camu goodness in your everyday lives:

  1. Mix it in your smoothie/juice. Not a green smoothie, more fruity e.g. pineapple, banana, mango, strawberries. This balances the bitterness.
  2. Mix it in your porridge (raw oats/buckwheat), chia pudding. Add some raisins and nuts.
  3. Mix it in your yoghurt (coconut/almond).
  4. Mix it with a fruity herbal tea, NOTE: Don’t use boiling hot water.
  5. Wild card facemask…mix 1 teaspoon of raw Camu powder with 1 desert spoon raw honey/manuka honey and 1 teaspoon of yoghurt. Leave on for 15 minutes and wash off. 

Happy Tuesday!

Hi Diana,

On average we recommend about 1/2 a teaspoon of Camu Camu powder daily, however it’s always best to just follow the serving instructions on the back of the packet.

Have a great week!

How much powder do you use daily?

Hi there – thanks for this great information and I love the tip about mixing it with honey. I do the same sort of thing when I make certain types of green tea (I like the benefits of green tea, not the taste). I am using the camu to treat my gums, an excess of dental work this past year has left my gums needing some real love and attention. I am just wondering what some others are using the camu for?

Dear all,
Hereby a little trick to swallow the camu camu powder, since I struggled with it. I initially mixed it with a bit of water and then swallowed 3 times with my nose closed, but I had to gag each time.
Now I add an equal amount of honey to it, even a bit more. I stir it in a glass until the paste is fully mixed. Then I add 2 times the amount of camu, as water. I mix again and then I drink it. I now do not have to close my nose and afterwards, I do not have to gag, and the taste on the tongue dissapears fast.
Hope this helps!
