Celery Green Smoothie with Mango, Banana and Goji Berries

Celery, Goji Berry and Mango Green SmoothieIf you haven’t had goji berries before, they are a great snack and also work really well in smoothies. They’re sweet, healthy and rich in antioxidants and Vitamin A. Make sure you soak the goji berries in water before blending. This will plump them up, release their juices and allows for easy blending. I mixed in some celery, bananas and mango chunks, resulting in a bright orange color, similar to my vegan goji berry shake. You can find goji berries at most health food stores, Whole Foods or on Amazon.

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.

        Hey Stephanie! Goji berries are versatile…besides smoothies, you can add them into your salads, trail mix or eat on their own.
