Northern Vigor Berries


This weeks Farmers’ Market find is Northern Vigor Berries who sell sea-buckthorn and sea-buckthorn products. Particularly tasty is their sea-buckthorn gelato.

Northern Vigor’s naturally grown sea-buckthorn shrubs provide nutritious berries that I had never heard of.  I’ve learned that sea-buckthorns are extremely high in vitamin E, vitamin C and beta-carotene.  The oil is known to be an anti-aging and anti-acne treatment for your complexion. Apparently Dr. Oz has even recommended sea-buckthorn as a weight loss super-food.

Right now I am enjoying Northern Vigor’s frozen sea-buckthorn berries in a smoothie for my breakfast

In a blender combine

-1/2 cup of water

1 banana

1 apricot

1/2 cup of fresh raspberries

2 tbsp. of sea-buckthorn berries

Blend and enjoy a healthy start to your day 🙂
