Goji berries with chocolate chips is one of my favorite snacks when I want something sweet.
Have you tried goji berries before?
Goji berries are these red berries that are sweet & a little tangy. They’re commonly sold in a dried form, like raisins.
They’re high in vitamin A, iron, fiber, & protein—& they also provide potassium, calcium, vitamin C, along with other nutrients.
Which is why they’re considered a superfood.
They’re nutritious & full of antioxidants.
I usually get them from the bulk section in Whole Foods, & store them in the fridge.
You can also buy them packaged.
Since they’re sweet & little tangy, they’re delicious with chocolate chips—they pair perfectly!
I love having them on their own too.
You can also add them to different recipes & other snacks.
Here are some ideas:
- on top of smoothies bowls
- on top of pancakes
- on top of rolled oats/steel cut oats/oatmeal
- in cereal
- on vegan ice cream, or nana cream
- mixed into trail mix
There are lots of ways to use them!
Planta—that delicious all plant-based restaurant we’re obsessed with in Miami, makes these dumplings with goji berries on top, & it’s sooo good! I shared a photo of it on IG (you can check it out here).
BTW, goji berries are also kid-approved! ; )
A couple months ago when I picked up the kids up from school (our niece & nephew) & brought them back to our place, I put some goji berries out on the table for them, in a little bowl, & they loved it! After a minute or so, I added chocolate chips to the bowl, & they loved that too—as you can imagine ; ) lol
So next time you want a sweet snack with a little tangy-ness make a little bowl of goji berries & chocolate chips, & enjoy!
For chocolate chips, I use Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsel—they’re vegan & contain only 2 ingredients: unsweetened chocolate & cane sugar. Plus, 1 tablespoon of them contains 15% recommended daily value (DV) of iron & 2g fiber (8% DV). YES, PLEASE!
LMK if you try this combo—goji berries + chocolate chips, how you like it!
& leave a comment if you have suggestions on other ways we can use goji berries. Would love to hear : )
