Vitamin C Drink

Makes 4 1/2 cups

This recipe contains four of the fruits with the highest levels of vitamin C. It may be frozen in ice-cube trays for up to four weeks. To make a smoothie, combine two cubes with 1/2 cup milk or yogurt in the jar of a blender.


  • 12 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled

  • 1 ½ cups freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 cup blueberries

  • 1 ripe banana

  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Combine ingredients in blender, and puree until airy and smooth, about 1 minute.

  2. Strain, if desired, through a sieve, to remove all blueberry-peel pieces. Keep the fresh juice refrigerated for up to 2 days; stir well before pouring. Serve cold.
