hi, does anyone know where i can purchase frozen Goji berries? All the ones i see are dried:confused:

I don't think they sell them frozen. Only Dry, just buy some of the dry and soak them in water and they will be fine. I buy them at the health food store. They are very good for you too. Doug in Calif...:eek:

I have never seen them frozen either. I got mine at Good Foods.

I have to buy mine on-line. Natures First Law. I buy my olives there too!

I've only seen dried, but perhaps if you live in an area where they grow them you could find dried.

I've only seen dried to and they are quite expensive here so I've not tried them yet ... what do they taste like?

Just purchased my first Goji Berry supply today at Wholefoods for $5.99. Read the description on the back and although they are dry it states they are 'raw' and natural. If anyone has any delicious and simple goji berry recipes please send them to me. I was starved, popped a few in my mouth, was delighted by a small explosion of sweet and salty.

I love Goji berries. Why do you want frozen ones?

I just heard of goji berries. Why are they becoming popular?

I was reading about 'superfoods' and it listed goji berries so I wanted to try them:eek: . My luck with dried fruit has not been good, I dont' like a lot of it, it is too sweet! So I thought if I could find them frozed I could throw them in a green smoothie!:D yum, yum:rolleyes:

Goji berries, in my opinion, aren't sweet at all. They have a very distinct flavor - hard to describe. Even dried, though, you can still throw them in your green smoothies. I do sometimes! I have a cheap lil blender, but it blends them up pretty well. A little chunk here and there, but I like chunks anyway - lol. I just use a little bit, or else the taste is really overwhelming for me.

I do not like goji berries! :p They taste like the cough syrup that has alcohol in them to me.
Does anyone else have this problem with goji berries?
I know they are a "superfood" but I can't stand the way they taste. Any suggestions on how to get them down or incorporate them into a recipe where I wouldn't TASTE them? :D

Just a friendly reminder.
You CAN get goji berries at Alissa's store online. Just look over to the left where it says "Alissa's Store" and the first one down is "Raw Foods". You can order them from there. Her's are the only ones I've had where I can tolerate the taste. Which really makes me wonder about the processing on the others. Same with her cacao nibs. Oh, while there, you HAVE to try the truffles. I'm a little well known in some circles about my obsession with them. I can't help it though. Try them! You'll see what I mean!:D

I take a little dixie cup and fill it half full with goji berries. Then I add half as much (or a tad more) of cacao nibs. I put my hand over the top and shake it up. Then I try to dump a roughly even amount in my mouth (a slightly higher % of goji berries is better) and chew them up.
Quite yummy, and it's gotta be good for the body, right? :)

Shine72 - I looooove the truffles! The outer coating is a little too bitter for my wife. Methinks the raw food lifestyle is an acquired taste?

I'm going to try that, marcus, it sounds good!!
I like to snack on them at work...Actually, today is my first day raw & that's what I did today & I can see myself using them to snack on!!
The nibs along with them sound good...
