Up until making this smoothie I had never tried gogi berries. In fact I can't figure out a comparable taste to describe a gogi berries, but they're good...maybe think cranberry craisins but not tart. Warning if you don't like ginger you won't like this drink.-12 Mar 2016


  1. 1 orange, peeled and segmented
  2. ½ frozen banana
  3. 1 ½ tbsp goji berries
  4. 1 tbsp ground flaxseed or chia seeds
  5. Juice from half a lime
  6. 70 ml (1/3 cup) chilled coconut water
  7. 2 tbsp of Pulsin protein powder (pea or soya bean work well) (or 25g silken tofu or squash or 10g of cashews)
  8. 5 ice cubes
  9. OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS
  10. 1 tsp baobab superfruit powder
  11. 1 tsp camu berry powder
  12. Goji berries (to garnish)
  • Throw all the ingredients in a blender.
  • Whizz until smooth. Taste and adjust if required. This smoothie is sweet enough for my palate, but it you want it sweeter, you can add ½ tsp agave or date syrup or a few drops of stevia.
  • Pour into a glass. Decorate with a few goji berries and serve. Enjoy!

Goji Berry Smoothie Recipe

You'll love this goji berry smoothie recipe… I promise!

Benefits of Goji Berries

We love goji berries for many reasons – they taste great! Did you know that goji berries have health benefits as well?

Just like other berries, goji berries are packed full of beta-carotene which helps promote healthy skin. They also boost the immune system and protect the eyes (and taste better than carrots!).

Goji berries have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and were even mentioned in one of the oldest books on Chinese herbs in existence. (Source)

This super fruit is known to support gastrointestinal health and relieve constipation. Some even say it improves cardiovascular health, treats diabetes, hypertension, and colds and fever. If nothing else, they're clearly healthy and delicious. Add some chia seeds and flax and you've got one of the healthiest smoothies you can come up with.

Benefits of Chia Seeds

I add chia seeds to anything I can because they don't really have a flavor. I didn't really like them when I added them to some fruit juices and teas, because they felt soggy and weird. Maybe it was my brain making that up, but I didn't like them! Now I just add them to meals and smoothies, mostly to help with digestion. Chia seeds are actually among the most nutritious foods on the entire planet. Loaded with fiber, protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids, I don't know how it all fits into such a small seed!

A 1 ounce serving of chia seeds has 11 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein!

1 mango – chopped
1 banana
1/3 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed so it's 0 PointsPlus)
sprinkling of chia seeds (less than a teaspoon) (1 PointsPlus)

1/4 cup goji berries
1/2 cup strawberries
1/3 cup almond milk (> 1 PointsPlus)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 teaspoon flaxseed (1 PointsPlus)

Goji Berry Smoothie Recipe

Because fruits are 0 PointsPlus on the Weight Watchers system, vanilla extract is 0 PointsPlus, and almond milk is less than 1 PointsPlus for 1/3 cup, this is a low PointsPlus Smoothie Recipe. The Points are coming from flax and chia which are both SO healthy they're worth it.

To make, mix each up separately in a blender then pour one on top of the other!

Orange, Lemon, Ginger and Goji Berry Smoothie

I am missing my mum’s white kitchen bench back home, that’s where I took this photo… I finally got my camera and mac setup and found this refreshing Orange, Lemon, Ginger and Goji Berry Smoothie on my memory card! I was making this during the Aussie winter after my dad harvested his home grown ginger and we had close to 1.5kg of fresh organic ginger to use up.

I was so busy packing and sorting for our move to Vietnam I actually forgot about it! oops! So glad I found it, I am suffering from a mild cold and a good dose of Vitamin C and ginger is just what I need, combined with the refreshing crushed ice and sweetness from the Goji berries. This Orange, Lemon, Ginger and Goji Berry Smoothie is adapted from the fresh fruit shakes I used to get back home near my mum’s house. It’s a must for anyone visiting Cabramatta (or Vietnamatta ), fresh fruit is crushed with ice and sugar syrup (I usually ask to leave the syrup out).

Orange, Lemon, Ginger and Goji Berry Smoothie

In Vietnam, these fresh fruit smoothies are on offer almost at any cafe or restaurant and the variations are incredible. I could just order one after the other as my meal. Mango, Soursop, Avocado, Passionfruit, Watermelon… the list goes on. You just need to ask them to hold off on the sugar syrup as they like to add sugar to everything in Vietnam! I was told by my doctor that the Vietnamese are amongst one of the highest ethnic groups at risk of developing diabetes. One of the main reason my doc put me onto the Paleo lifestyle – Thank you doc!


Menus & Tags

Really nice. I loved the freshness that the ginger adds to this drink. I added some ice so it would take more the consistency of a smoothie. A healthy and refreshing way to start anybody's day.

Up until making this smoothie I had never tried gogi berries. In fact I can't figure out a comparable taste to describe a gogi berries, but they're good. maybe think cranberry craisins but not tart. Warning if you don't like ginger you won't like this drink.

Goji-Orange-Turmeric Smoothie (&ldquoThe Immunity Booster&rdquo)

I’m trying not to get too distracted from work right now (still going on the dissertation but I’m definitely on the home stretch!) but I thought I’d stop by and share this recipe as, if you folks are anything like me, you could do with a little mid-week pick me up.

This Goji-Orange-Turmeric Smoothie is exactly that!

I’m usually not one for fresh and fruity smoothies and prefer the creamy, often chocolat-ey kind! But this one here is a little different and contains some seriously powerful ingredients in the nutrition stakes, as well as being exceptionally tasty.

Goji berries: Touted as a “superfood”. Gram for gram, goji berries contain more vitamin C than oranges and more beta-carotene than carrots. Beta-carotene is important for healthy skin and eyes.

Turmeric: High in curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger: Boosts immunity, eases digestion, improves circulation and also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Oranges: Very high in vitamin C, vital for a healthy immune system.

I managed to pick up a cold some time last week but am feeling better already. I can’t say it was just this smoothie which did it but I’m sure looking after myself with nourishing food helped!

Ill or not, I’ll be making this smoothie regularly. The flavours are hard to describe…tangy, soothing and sweet…they all sound conflicting but I promise all those elements are there. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

Goji Burst Smoothie – for better digestion

Goji berries are simply delicious. They make the perfect snack and pack a punch with their nutrient density, being a high source of fiber, iron and vitamins a and C. I remember when bought out a bowl for my niece to try and we just sat on the back deck and enjoyed the sun and the soft delicious berries. She was just two at the time and I’m glad she liked them so much, they are a much healthier choice for a children’s snack than cheerios or fruity flavored gummies.

Goji berries make the perfect addition to any smoothie. When you are trying to make a super-powered quick breakfast meal or snack throwing in this superfood will take it to the next level! Don’t be shy and have some fun experimenting. Try out my smoothie recipe below. It’s not overly sweet, super creamy and will help keep you regular. If you take probiotics or thinking about taking them this is a great drink to aid in their transport to your small intestine.
