Kefir Raw Cacao and Goji Berry Smoothie
Love My Power Blender
Goji Berries Blitzed
Goji berries are one of the “super foods” I try to eat on a regular basis. However, they really didn’t work very well in a smoothie using our old blender which produced a not very appealing reddish sludge at the bottom of the jug. So, the very first ingredient I put to the test in our Froothie blender was goji berries. We tend to add all sorts of things to our smoothies and a banana is not an uncommon ingredient, but I wanted to keep this as simple as possible so that we could taste the goji berries and get a real chocolate hit.
It’s perhaps, no surprise to other Froothie Fanatics that this actually worked, but I was thrilled. In a matter of seconds, you could no longer detect any individual part of the goji berries – they blended perfectly. The kefir raw cacao and goji berry smoothie was also quite delicious and worked as I’d hoped. It’s raw, healthy and energy boosting. You can find out more about kefir in this spiced kefir pancakes post. Better still, I have a whole post on how to make kefir and what to use it for.
