Gojiberry & Banana Smoothie

Today's post is my first trial with the famous gojiberries, these berries are easily available for me in Chinese stores but somehow i wasnt comfortable to give a try until i came to know more about this incredible berries by googling. Then a day, i picked a small packet of this berries and back home i tried them in smoothies, trust me the smoothie i tried everytime with this gojiberries is a big hit with everyone at home. However i love this banana gojiberry combination in smoothie.The goji berry is also called as wolfberry. This berry is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.Earlier people have used goji berries  to treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines.


Gojiberries tastes mildly sweet with a super mild sourness, you can replace the raisins or dates in smoothies with this incredible berries. I prepared this smoothie without sugar, goji berries and banana works wonder here and some honey gives enough sweetness to this healthy,super filling smoothie. Personally i felt adding gojiberries often in smoothies, as it a best way to sneak this healthy berries.Am running my first week of blogging marathon withSizzling smoothies as theme, obviously stay tuned to check with my two more smoothies i'll be posting for the next two days. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.
