Using frozen strawberries (from the summer stash) and gojis that I buy bulk (see this post), I've been making Strawberry-Goji Smoothies just about every morning for the last number of weeks.
If you haven't found your goji love yet, this smoothie is an excellent way to get them in your diet. The flavor of the bananas and strawberries predominate, and the gojis aren't particularly noticeable. Even my 'goji-unfriendly' daughter sucks up this drink!
I have a new Blendtec, and I must gush about this machine; I'm having a bit of a blender affair. Remember that scene in Crocodile Dundee (that's not a knife... THIS is a knife)? Well, the first time I used my Blendtec I felt like I was in that movie scene. But with a blender. I said "that's not a blender... THIS is a blender" (butchering the Aussie accent in the process)!
Now, every time I use the Blendtec with the girls around, I look at them and say "oh yeeaahhh". They roll their eyes at me. Yes, mommy is a kitchen geek. But this is one amazing machine, so I wear I'll wear that kitchen geek label proudly! I use this blender every day, often 2-3 times a day (especially now that I'm making baby foods, a post on that later). Indeed, I am having an affair with my Blendtec. Hubby has accepted second place.
With this Strawberry-Goji Smoothie, the Blendtec purees the heck out of the flax seeds and gojis - blitzes them to smithereens. Here it is in motion, though you can't quite get the full effect. It's a beautiful thing. And the smoothie is a delicious, nutritious thing. Go make it.
