Goji – Strawberry Smoothie

br />

If your strawberries are lacking sweetness, add the optional honey or sweetener of your choice. I use unstrained, homemade almond milk, as that’s what I keep on hand; it also adds more body to the smoothie if you’re drinking it as a meal. You will need to soak the flax and goji overnight; this not only softens them but also allows the flax to thicken to a gelatinous consistency. I soaked the flax and goji on the counter but if you want a cold smoothie, place it in the fridge.
2 tablespoons flax seeds
3 tablespoons goji berries
¾ cup filtered water

2 cups hulled strawberries
1 cup homemade almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw honey or sweetener of choice, optional

Add flax seeds and goji berries to a cup or jar, pour in water and soak overnight or until thick and gelatinous.
Place everything in a blender and blend until completely smooth, drink immediately or allow to sit for a few minutes to thicken.
Any left over smoothie keeps for up to 2 days in the fridge, where it will thicken further.
