Superfood Smoothie

Here you have two of my favourite superfoods in one super smoothie!

As an added bonus, in addition to the goji berries and raw cacao, there’s a few other ‘super’ foods in this recipe too, such as kale, blueberries, and even lucuma. Essentially, it’s an all-round winner for your health!

Goji BerrY Nutrition

Goji berries are one of the best berries you can include in your diet and also bring a touch of colour to recipes. They’re especially high in vitamin C and fibre, while also being a great plant-based source of iron and vitamin A.

Goji berries pack a decent dose of protein and are fairly low in calories.

BlueberrY Nutrition

Blueberries are generally more well-known than goji berries. these blue delights are bursting with antioxidants. Research has shown that they are particularly good for brain health and protecting the nervous system.

Certain studies have suggested blueberries can help to improve memory function. When you freeze blueberries, you preserve the nutrients within, so it’s always a good idea to stock up when they’re in season to enjoy throughout the year.

A one cup serving of these berries will provide your body with ample vitamin K, manganese, vitamin C, fibre and copper, among many other health boosting vitamins and minerals.

Superfood Smoothie Recipe

To make enough of this super smoothie for one or two people, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp of goji berries
  • 2 cups / 16fl oz / 450ml of coconut water
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 tsp of lucuma powder
  • 1 tsp of raw cacao
  • 1/2 cup / 2oz / 55g of blueberries
  • A handful of kale

Method:

First, pre-soak the goji berries in a bowl of cold water for ten minutes before draining and rinsing. You can then place the berries in a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blitz for one to two minutes, or until smooth. Serve immediately and enjoy!
