Goji Berry Smoothie – Full of antioxidant power – this is a filling and healthy Vegan way to start the day.

 

Goji Berry Smoothie

Every few years a new superfood fad comes around and we learn of the amazing health benefits and all of a sudden, they can be found in every market and gourmet restaurants are including these products in everything from salads to muffins.

10 years ago, you would have to go to a gourmet market to find even one brand that produced pomegranate juice and now even in ordinary supermarkets and corner stores, you can find several varieties.

After pomegranate, the next fad was goji berries and then acai and now it is chia seeds.  As each new fad comes about, people have the tendency to stop consuming the first one to get on the new fad bandwagon.  However, you should try to include all these in your diet as much as possible as they ALL have amazing health benefits.

After watching Dr. Oz several ago where he suggested putting Goji Berries in smoothies, it has become a standard for me.  Full of antioxidant power, it multiplies the health benefits of your breakfast smoothie.

Goji Berry Smoothie

a delicious and filling smoothie to start the day
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Course: Smoothie
Cuisine: Continental
Servings: 2
Calories: 313.93kcal

Ingredients

  • 3 very ripe bananas broken into a few pieces
  • 10 oz. package frozen mango slightly defrosted
  • 1/4 cup dried Goji Berries plus more for garnish
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • a few tablespoons of honey optional

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix well.
  • I use very ripe bananas so there is no need to add any additional sweetener to the natural sweetness from the fruit.  However, if your bananas are not as ripe, you may feel the need to add the honey.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

This is a very thick smoothie so if you plan on preparing this ahead, you may have to add more milk to thin it out a little because when you put it in the refrigerator, it thickens.

    I've heard of it too Mirielle, but have never tried it so far. How would you describe the taste of Goji berries, they look similar to currants or raisins…do they taste sweet?, just curious–I've been wanting to try them for a very long time.
