Fresh Friday Recipe: Goji Berries Strawberry Banana Super Smoothie

Goji Berries–Truly a Superfruit

Have you ever heard of Goji Berries? I was first introduced to Goji Berries through my studies with the Integrative Institute of Nutrition (IIN–Holistic Health Coaching Program). Goji Berries are now being touted as a #SUPERFRUIT. Goji berries are native to China, Tibet, and Mongolia and grow on evergreen shrubs (possible allergy risk associated with Goji Berries). Goji Berries are highly antioxidant, contain many vitamins and minerals, are a high protein source, and according to WebMD have many possible health benefits:

  • being rich in Vitamin A=possible anti-aging benefits
  • increase brain health
  • improved athletic performance
  • happiness
  • calmness
  • improved sleep quality

Goji Berries have a different name which perhaps makes them more appealing to your inner animal . . . “Wolfberries!” They have a somewhat earthy, nutty flavor. You can eat Goji Berries as a snack, in your pre-run oatmeal or in a delicious smoothie.

  1. I love goji berries! in fact I’ve got some right here, but never thought to add them to a smoothie. I recently watched a YouTube video about how the juice can heal the body by making the blood alkaline and allowing all of the systems to work properly. The research was done by a Johns Hopkins Doctor… it’s fascinating to see the effect it has on the blood!
