Fall Goji Berry Spice Latte

Goji Berries make a fantastic base for a warm, fall latte that is sure to please. Considered both a fruit and a herb, goji berries are very hearty as they grow in extremely harsh climates. They have become a popular “superfood” over the past few years due to their high nutrient content and antioxidant properties.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup  goji berries (or pumpkin puree if you do not have goji berries)

1/4 cup  hot filtered water

1 cup     unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk

¼ tsp    cinnamon

¼ tsp     ginger

Pinch turmeric powder

1 tsp   raw honey

Directions:

  1. Soak goji berries in warm water for 30 mins.
  2. Drain water from goji berries.
  3. Place soaked goji berries (or pumpkin puree), hot water and spices into a blender and blend on high.
  4. Heat coconut milk on the stovetop and whisk with a tiny wire whisk to make it frothy.
  5. Add coconut milk to the blended berry mixture and blend for 30 seconds on high.
  6. Pour into 2 mugs and sweeten with raw honey to taste. Enjoy!
