2 tbsp sea buckthorn purée

1 cup orange juice (I used an organic orange/mango juice)

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

Blend the ingredients briefly and immediately pour into popsicle molds.

Pour into ice cube trays for a flavourful addition to water.

Freeze until set and enjoy!

 

As well as being high in vitamin C, sea buckthorn contains vitamins E, A, B1, B2, B5, D, P, K, and a number of minerals, carotenoids, and phytosterols (known for their cholesterol-lowering properties).

A super boost to a summer staple.
