What to mix with vitamin c powder?

Are you tired of just mixing your daily dose of vitamin C powder with plain water or juice? Well, get ready to spice things up! Here are some fun and unexpected ways of incorporating that citrusy goodness into your diet.

First Things First: Why Vitamin C?

Before we delve into the creative options, let’s quickly refresh our memory on why vitamin C is so important. Not only does it boost our immune system, but it also helps with collagen production for healthy skin and wound healing. Plus, it acts as an antioxidant by neutralizing free radicals in the body. So not only will these recipes taste good, but they’ll be doing wonders for your health too!

The Classic Combo: Orange Juice

Alright, this may not be groundbreaking advice, but sometimes sticking with a classic can’t go wrong! Instead of opting for store-bought orange juice filled with added sugars and preservatives (gross), squeeze a fresh orange yourself and mix in a teaspoon (or more) of vitamin C powder. Talk about getting that double dose!

Bonus Points: Add Some Zest

If you’re feeling fancy (and sassy) grate some orange zest onto the top for extra flavor and nutrients.

Wake Up Call: Coffee

Yes, you read that right – even coffee can benefit from a little kick of vitamin C! Mix a small amount (around 1/4 teaspoon) into your morning cup o’ joe for an unexpected zing (pow).

Beware: Don’t Overdo It

Be cautious though – adding too much could give off bitter vibes (ew) unless strong flavors are already present like dark chocolate or nutty beans. But hey – at least you tried something new!

Feeling Groggy? Smoothie Time!

A smoothie provides endless opportunities to experiment; fruit choice alone can make or break any delicious concoction. Here’s a custom blend to get those creative juices flowing…

Good Morning Sunshine

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana (don’t forget to peel it)
  • 1/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • Handful of spinach leaves (’cause we need our greens)
  • Ice for texture

Blend until smooth, then add in your vitamin C powder and give it one last mix-up before sipping away. Yummm.

Switch Things Up: Salad Dressing

Yep, you heard correctly – salad dressing! Vitamin C gives that tangy taste we all love along with the health benefits – count us in.

Recipe Time: Citrus Vinaigrette

Whisk together these ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of half an orange (including pulp)
  • Zest from the same orange (waste not, want not)
  • Dash of Dijon mustard
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Adding a small amount (about a teaspoon or less) of vitamin C powder packs some extra punch (kapow!) into this delicious vinaigrette recipe. Perfect combo for drizzling over your favorite salad greens or as marinade!

Sweet Tooth Alert: DIY Gummies

Are you someone who just can’t resist gummy sweets when passing by candy jars? Same here. But let’s make them ourselves with zero guilt and added nutritional value – yes please!

How-To Steps:

  1. Combine:
    • Freshly squeezed fruit juice (unsweetened)
    • Gelatin powder (make sure it’s free from additives)
  2. Heat mixture on stove-top while stirring constantly until gelatin is dissolved.
  3. Remove heat source and whisk in desired amount of vitamin C powder.
  4. Pour mixture into silicone molds and chill until firm.
  5. Pop ’em out and voilà! Not only do they taste amazing but your body will thank you, too.

Time to Soup it Up: Tomato Soup

Not just any tomato soup – this recipe is creamy (yum) yet healthy (winning)! Plus, with sneakily adding in some vitamin C powder, everyone gets an extra immunity boost.

Recipe Below:

  • 1 can whole tomatoes
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic (if you dare)
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves (because puns are always relevant)
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Put all ingredients into a blender (or use hand-held immersion mixer), blend until warm/hot and smooth. Then add in the desired amount of powder for that unbeatable tangy flavor.

P.S. This pairs perfectly with grilled cheese – trust us!
