Goji Smoothie – EZ Recipe

Looking for a healthy smoothie for the summer, we remembered this Gogi berry recipe from Marin Magazine, by twins Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford. This super easy recipe is from their book, Super Charged Smoothies, published by Chronicle Books.

As Goji Greatness

Goji berries may look like shriveled red raisins and taste a tad seedy on their own, but blended in this smoothie, the little berries transform into goji greatness. Used for some six thousand years by herbalists in China, Tibet, and India, this dried berry is loaded with antioxidants. Truly a wonder fruit, goji berries are thought to improve eyesight, protect the liver, promote longevity, and boost the immune system. Om, meet yum!

 

1 cup goji juice or apple juice
1 3/4 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cup passion-fruit sorbet
2 tbsp goji berries

Combine the goji juice, strawberries, and sorbet in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the goji berries and pulse until well incorporated.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups; serves 2.
