Chocolate-Covered Goji Berry Green Smoothie

Posted by on Jan 8, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

I’m back at work today for the first day in 2014. I wish I could say I was ready for what’s in store for the year ahead, but the next few months are going to be pretty brutal.  Deep breath. 

Today I’m sharing a smoothie recipe that took me a bit by surprise.  I needed something sweet (but healthful of course) and decided that a chocolate green smoothie was in order. But I wanted something a bit more than just chocolate.  Looking in my cupboard I came across a pack of goji berries and thought, why not?

Wow! They added a beautiful depth and complexity to what is otherwise a pretty run-of-the-mill green smoothie. 

This is one that is definitely worth trying!
