Goji berries (also known as Wolfberries or “Red Diamonds”) are the vibrant red berries that grow on the Lycium barbarum plant.

The Lycium barbarum plant (a species of the Box Thorn plant) is native to the cultivated valleys of Mongolia, where these certified organic Goji berries have been sourced from, and have been enjoyed by local monks since 800AD.

These goji berries are never handled whilst harvesting – instead they are gently shaken onto mats and dried in the shade to prevent them from oxidising.

How to use Goji Berries

The benefits of goji berries are not merely confined to their impressive nutritional make-up, these small red berries have far more to offer than just a welcome boost of vitamins and minerals. That’s because goji berries are an incredibly versatile little fruit that’s also huge on flavour. 

Goji berries boast a highly distinctive flavour that’s often likened to an irresistible blend of cranberry and cherry, and make a deliciously sensible snack between meals, either just as they are or added to your choice of trail mix.

Alternatively, goji berries can be blended into smoothies, or pre-soaked in water for use as an additional ingredient in your favourite raw chocolate bars and snacks. Goji berries also make a wonderfully colourful topping for salads (such as the one below!), breakfast cereals and desserts.

Goji Berries Recipe - Goji Berry Dressing

Say ‘goodbye’ to shop-bought salad dressings laden with refined sugars and other artificial additives, and say ‘hello’ to our invigorating homemade goji berry dressing! This wonderfully vibrant salad dressing is made exclusively from wholesome ingredients and adds an interesting splash of colour to all of your favourite salads.

Ingredients

1/4 cup of organic goji berries

2 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp. of raw honey

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

First soak the goji berries in water for around thirty minutes or until soft and moist. Once nice and gooey, pop the goji berries into your blender, along with the olive oil.

Next add in the freshly squeezed lemon juice and the raw honey for a subtle touch of sweetness.

Blitz for around thirty seconds and hey presto – your goji berry dressing is ready to drizzle generously over your chosen salad. We think it makes the perfect contrast to a simple bed of lettuce and freshly chopped avocado, liberally topped with crunchy walnut halves or pecan nuts.
