gojicoconutmilksmoothie

I love a smoothie that is quick, simple, delicious, and nutrient-rich, containing all of the fat, fiber, and protein essential for a complete snack or meal.

This recipe contains goji berries, which are great for you!  They are rich in antioxidants, hormone-balancing compounds, and protein.  In fact, they contain all 19 amino acids, including the 8 essential amino acids.  What this  means is that they are a complete source of protein. The smoothie also contains high fiber berries and coconut milk, a healthy fat.

This smoothie is perfect for you if you are new to drinking healthy smoothies or are busy and want a smoothie with minimal ingredients, that is easy to prepare.  This smoothie is perfect for you if you want a balanced snack, with the added benefit of anti-inflammatory super-foods.   Finally, this smoothie is great for your family.  The hormone-balancing compounds I mentioned above also help us to produce growth hormones essential for healthy growth in children.  Enjoy!
