Goji Berries are very high in vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids. It’s said that Goji Berries slow down the aging proces thanks to the high ratio of anti-oxidants. But besides it’s health benefits the goji berry is very tasty as well!
Nowadays there is a variety of supplements with goji’s but I think it’s best to enjoy ‘the real deal’; a handful of goji’s mixed with some nuts as a snack, as a topping for a pancake or, like in this recipe, mixed into a smoothie! The goji berries give this smoothie a nice sweet flavour.
