5 Delicious Goji Berry Breakfasts

Goji berries make the ideal addition to almost any breakfast. Their mild taste and complex nutritional value can give you the perfect boost and energy to start your day. Here are five simple and easy ways to boost your breakfasts with Goji berries:


Goji quinoa


This quick and easy breakfast porridge takes just 15 minutes to prepare and is one of the best starts you can make to your day. Quinoa is a nutrition rich food on its own, add some goji berries and you can have a super food breakfast. When cooking the quinoa add a teaspoonful of dried goji berries. They will absorb water along with the quinoa as it cooks and add a slightly sweet sour flavor to the meal. This can be balanced with a spoonful of honey or natural yoghurt.


Goji breakfast smoothie


Smoothies are often a great way to get in a combination of nutrients without having to go to too much effort. Plus they can be enjoyed on the go or as an in between snack – a much healthier alternative to fast food. This smoothie recipe can be adapted to taste and preferences. Add together some organic spinach, an apple, a teaspoonful of goji berries, half a cup of natural yoghurt, half a cup of Natureland beetroot juice, two spoons of oats and some frozen or fresh berries of your choice. Combine together in an electric blender and enjoy.

Combine two eggs, a tablespoon of psyllium husk, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a teaspoon of goji berries. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Heat some coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan to form individual blinis. Once they start to bubble flip them over so that they cook on both sides. Once cooked, serve with plain yoghurt for a delicious breakfast. You can also drizzle over a little honey for a sweeter taste.
