I find that people either like or hate goji berries, I personally like them. They are an antioxidant superfood that I like to add to trail mix, oatmeal, cookies, shakes, or just grab a handful with some savi seeds as a snack. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients including carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and soluble fiber they are a great addition to any diet. They even make chocolate covered goji berries that are delicious. This shake is one I like to enjoy after a morning workout.
Goji Berry Protein Shake
1 c almond milk, or non dairy milk of choice (used Delicious Almond Milk Plus for added protein)
1 Medjool date, pitted
1 TBSP raw cashew butter or almond butter (used cashew butter this time)
2 TBSP Goji berries (Navitas Naturals)
1 tsp gelatinized maca (Navitas Naturals)
In a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, blend everything together until smooth. Enjoy!
As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
