There is not a person in this world who is not going to fall in love with this creamy slushi/smoothie/juice. The color turns out absolutely gorgeous with the addition of the goji berries and all of the beta-carotene that they contain. Goji berries are also a naturally energizing food because they contain Polysaccharides.
The frozen mango adds a creamy texture to the mix, however, you can use any fresh/frozen fruit that you have on hand. Play around with the portions for a thicker/thinner texture.
Did you know?
Goji berries are packed full of natural protein, trace minerals, essential fatty-acids, amino acids, and over 20 vitamins and minerals. They are also rich in carotenoids and other antioxidants like beta-carotene and Zeaxanthym. Zeaxanthyn is an antioxidant that absorbs blue light and protects our retina of our eyes (If you're reading this, you're currently staring into electronic blue light, whether it be via your computer, phone or tablet) and improves our vision. No wonder goji berries have been touted to be one of the most beneficial superfoods found on the planet!
The goji berry comes from a shrub that's native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, and many other countries. Goji berries have been used in many medicinal preparations for thousands of years, proving its efficiency as a medicinal plant. It is enjoyed above most other superfoods and adaptogenic herbs, because it is much more palatable compared to many of the other bitter roots and barks.Today, goji berries are sold around the world in dried whole-berry form, such as these Tibetan Goji Berries.
