Fresh blueberries are frozen and pureed with pomegranate juice, orange juice and goji berries in this refreshing slushie. This anti-oxidant filled delight is equally delicious whether you drink it to start your day or sip it as a light dessert while you wind down. This recipe comes to us from Cat of The Verdant Life.
- 2 cup blueberries, frozen*
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/4 cup goji berries, soaked in 1 cup water
- 1 cup acai berry juice
- juice of 2 oranges
- 1 cup ice cubes
*To freeze fresh blueberries, wash and dry them, then spread them out on a plate, to avoid clumping. Place in your freezer until frozen. Try to use the blueberries within a few days of freezing them, as they loose flavor the longer they sit.
Place the blueberries, pomegranate juice, goji berries and juice or acai berry juice, orange juice and ice cubes into a blender. Pulse until frothy.
Divide into 2 glasses and enjoy!
