FMTV - Fly High Goji Berry Superfood Bonanza

Fly High Goji Berry Superfood Bonanza

Series: Superfood Recipes | Runtime: 15m 14s | Release date: 2012

This segment features: David Wolfe.

This drink combines two of my favorite superfoods: goji berries and cacao, with some other very powerful superfood ingredients to make a special concoction that will leave you flying high!

Goji Berry is an adaptogen which is known to harmonize and increase the jing energy of the adrenals and kidneys. It is often used to enhance stamina, longevity, strength and sexual energy. Goji berries are perhaps the most nutritionally rich berry-fruit on the planet. They taste delicious and are well-balanced for nearly all body types, blood types and metabolisms.

Hemp seeds are often regarded as among the most nutritious foods on the planet because they are the only plant which contains all essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain life. Hemp seeds are one of the richest sources of complete protein. Hemp seed is a good source of brain-building and liver-supporting lecithin, and is one of the few seeds that contains chlorophyll.

Maca is a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as a libido-enhancing superfood. It is a powerful adaptogen which can balance and stabilize the body's endocrine system, nervous system, cardiovascular system and musculature. According to research, maca can increase energy, endurance, oxygen in the blood, physical strength, and neurotransmitter production. It can improve one's mood and help support healthy hormone production.

Aloe Vera contains vitamins A, C, and E, the minerals sulfur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, lignans, and most importantly, polysaccharides. Aloe's polysaccharides have a particular lubricating effect on the joints, brain, nervous system, and the skin. These polysaccharides are long-burning carbohydrates and provide steady energy over time.

Any reason I shouldn't throw a frozen banana or some frozen berries in?

Hi Vanessa, adding frozen bananas will actually give your smoothie a thick, ice cream-like texture and consistency, so please feel free to alter the recipe according to your preference :) Enjoy! ~ Iris

Amazing beverage, huge fan of David!!
One question, is it good to drink it on an empty stomach in the mornings before workout or is it better to drink it afterwards??

Thanks ;)

As this drink is packed with a lot of energy and power, this is great to drink early in the morning, when you're getting up and going, I'd say right before starting any activities like playing sports, work outs etc. I also have here a great article on what to eat before and after a workout that I think you will also find useful: http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/what-to-eat-before-and-after-a-workout. Hope this helps :-) ~ Iris

Looks amazing!! Any tips on where to find aloe vera leaves in Canada? We can't grow them here. Thx.

Hi there, your local health food store will most likely carry aloe vera in its different forms. Its leaves or liquid form are sometimes sold separately. However, one of our online resources might be a useful search tool for you: http://www.eatwellguide.org/i.php?pd=Home :) ~ Raziel
