Today, I am ending my BM theme with G for Gojiberries.
This super food is loaded with antioxidant power.
Recently, I showed you how easy it was to make your own muesli instead of buying the packaged ones with my recipe for Blackberry Muesli. With this recipe, I converted a muesli into a tropical flavored, filling breakfast smoothie.
1 cup oats
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup gojiberries
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
3 1/4 cups milk (I used 2% lowfat)
10 oz. frozen mango, defrosted (you can also use fresh mango, but in the middle of winter in NY now, ripe mangoes are difficult to find)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly ground
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine oats, coconut, gojiberries, almonds, apple and 2 1/4 cups of the milk in a bowl with a cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
Puree in a blender with the rest of the milk. Add the rest of the ingredients and puree.
If desired, garnish with juicy gojiberries.
