On June 1, 2012, in Antioxidants, Goji berry products, Goji Galore, Superfoods, by Goji

We love sharing recipes that incorporate goji berries and this month, we are featuring part of Montel Williams‘ “Miracle Plan to Conquer Emotional Eating”, which he discussed on the Dr. Oz Show this month! Here is Montel’s favorite Chilled Chocolate Goji Berry Blast recipe:

  • 3 heaping tablespoons of raw chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons of goji berries
  • 1 can of coconut water

Grind the raw chocolate and goji berries together, mix them with a can of coconut water, and enjoy.

The raw chocolate provides an antioxidant-rich, natural appetite suppressant without the extra junk in processed candy bars, while the goji berries are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamin C, and antioxidants, so you’ll combat the stress without packing on pounds.
