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
1/2 cup of fresh raspberries
2 tbsp. of sea-buckthorn berries
Blend and enjoy a healthy start to your day 🙂
