Goji Berry Strawberry Chia SmoothieI absolutely adore goji berries! When I feel like having a little energizing or sweet snack I pop these bright red beauties into my mouth.  Read all about the health benefits of goji berries here.

Since I love goji berries so much, I was inspired to create today’s smoothie for you.   I combined them with strawberries for a sweet satisfying taste and to nourish our body.

  • Strawberries will help you cleanse naturally Your body will renew itself and toxins will get flushed from the liver and kidneys .
  • Strawberries have great diuretic, purifying, and antioxidant powers.
  • They are rich in vitamins A, C, and E.
  • They are rich in iron, vitamin K, and folic acid.
  • Strawberries have anti-inflammatory properties, which is why they help you when you have muscular properties or any bone diseases.
  • Strawberries have soluble fiber, which means they are a huge help in the absorption of carbohydrates and help keep sugar levels balance
  • They are good at relieving constipation

The chia seeds provide protein, omega 3 fatty acids and fiber.
