View Full Version : what to do with goji berries?
01-03-2007, 02:22 PM
I recently ordered a bag from NFL, and now that they're here, I'm not sure what to do with them. I don't particularly like them straight from the bag, so I'm hoping someone has a tasty way to use them. Thanks!

Oh I LOVE goji berries. I admit, they were an acquired taste. For me, at first taste I thought I liked them, then ate a little more and was like, "Yuck!", but something just kinda "drew me" to them and I ate a little more and then I realized that I liked them!
I eat them straight, I make a little mix with them and cashews for a nice snack, sometimes I mix in with grawnola or my "raw" oatmeal along with raisins, some blend them into their smoothies but my all time favorite HAS to be the Orange-Goji Berry White Chocolate recipe that Sheryl posted here...it is SO good...MMMM.
Here's the link to the recipe: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13165&highlight=orange+goji+white+chocolate (Sheryl says if you don't have cacao butter, you can sub with coconut butter or oil...I think)
And here is a picture of mine that I made: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24338
mmm goji berries. My husband didn't care for them, said they had a funny aftertaste but I loved them at first bite. I just can't afford them. At my health food store they are almost $10 for an 8oz bag... I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try that goji white chocolate recipe... mmmmmm

I just eat them straight from the bag. I love them! I'm not a fruit lover either. I do ration them and eat only a few at a time. They are expensive. I suppose you could also put them in a trail mix and I've seen recipes here for them. Just can't remember where.

Thank you for the replies! I just printed the white chocolate recipe & have everything to make it if I sub coconut oil/butter for the cacao butter. Will it be a huge difference, do you think? Thanks again! Jen
