Carrot + Goji Berry Smoothie
Serves: 3–4
  • 1 cup carrots (steamed and cooled)
  • ½ cup Japanese sweet potato (skin on, baked and cooled)
  • ¼ cup goji berries (rehydrated)
  • ⅓ cup green plantain
  • 1 scoop whey protein (organic, grass-fed, and unsweetened – I like Tera's Whey)
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 thumb of fresh ginger root (peeled and sliced)
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom
  • water (to reach desired consistency)
  1. Blend all ingredients together.
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with blood oranges, kumquats, and a sprinkling of Breakfast Gomasio*.
*Breakfast Gomasio is a delicious and mineral-rich condiment made from:

2 parts ground flax
2 parts ground white sesame seed
2 parts dulse flakes
1 part black sesame seed
1 part hemp seeds
1 part bee pollen
1 part dried, ground orange peel

Note: keep Gomasio mix refrigerated until ready to use.
