Dairy-free Orange Goji Smoothie

orange-1-low-res

Drink me! An immune-boosting smoothie

 

Don’t you just love smoothies? They are such a quick and easy way to boost your fruit and veg intake and taste amazing. All you need is a blender and faster than you can boil an egg, you have a grab and go breakfast or work-out drink! (Note, I didn’t say eat a bowl of muesli!).

This orange and goji smoothie is really delicious; it is fresh, zingy and so refreshing. Orange and goji are rich sources of anti-oxidants and so this recipe is great for the immune-system. (What a great way to fend off the cold and flu!).

To make this smoothie nutritionally dense, I have included ground flaxseed or chia seed, (for an added omega, fibre and protein boost), banana (an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6 and anti-oxidants) and protein powder (I love plant-derived soya bean and pea).

Note: If you have run out of protein powder, you can substitute for silken tofu, steamed squash or cashews.

Makes: 1 glass (approx. 300ml)

Preparation time: 3 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 ½ tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed or chia seeds
  • Juice from half a lime
  • 70 ml chilled coconut water
  • 2 tbsp of protein powder (pea or soya bean work well) (or 25g silken tofu or squash or 10g of cashews)
  • 5 ice cubes

Optional: for an extra-anti-oxidant zesty burst, you can add either:

To garnish: a few goji berries

 

Method:

 Throw all the ingredients in a blender.

Whizz until smooth. Taste and adjust if required. This smoothie is sweet enough for my palate, but it you want it sweeter, you can add ½ tsp honey/ agave/ date syrup or a few drops of stevia.

Pour into a glass. Decorate with a few goji berries and serve. Enjoy!

Variations:

  • Include some fresh root ginger (a 2cm chunk)..
  • Add 1 tsp lucuma powder as the sweetener instead of honey/ agave/ date syrup/ stevia.
  • Include 10 cashews for extra creaminess

  1. This tastes soooo good. I made with a little tofu and maple syrup instead of the honey. I’m struggling to find pea protein locally. Can you recommend any online sources?

    Along with the Red Pepper Goji soup, this is my favourite from your recommendations.
