There is a deli around the corner from where we live in Stockholm that used to serve a goji berry smoothie that was so addictive that we just had to make our own version of it. Goji berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years and are an excellent source of antioxidants. Combined with the orange and carrot juice, they make a smoothie that is packed with vitamin C and betacarotene to help protect against immune system deficiencies. The flavour of this smoothie is quite sweet with a wide variety of fruity tones – very unique! To balance the sweetness we also make it quite spicy with a big chunk of ginger, a touch of turmeric and pinch of black pepper. These ingredients also add some great anti-inflammatory properties to the drink.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 orange, peeled and roughly chopped
1 ripe mango, stone removed
40g dried goji berries
1/2-1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon fresh turmeric, grated
250ml freshly squeezed carrot juice
pinch black pepper
2 tablespoons black chia seeds

Method

  1. Place all of the ingredients except the chia seeds in a blender. Blend on a high speed until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the spiciness to your liking by adding more ginger if necessary.
  2. Pour into two medium-sized glasses. Stir in the chia seeds and serve chilled.
