Imagine a yoga class in a glass. That’s fresh goji berry juice.
Plump dried goji berries are brought back to life in a flavorful and juicy liquid, then blended until smooth. Tart goji berry and sweet orange citrus combine before straining it into a clean, vitamin-packed juice. Then, we add another dimension of flavor with fresh squeezed orange juice. Once you’ve made your own fresh goji berry juice, you may never want to buy it again! In fact, it might make you rethink that lemonade stand idea.
This goji berry juice is a delicious drink that kids will enjoy just as much as the adults. Fresh goji berry juice is a versatile ingredient alongside other fresh juices and mixed into cocktails. For instance, fresh goji berry juice can be cooked down with sugar into a flavorful syrup to be used in soda water, cocktails and smoothies. It makes delicious ice cubes to upgrade your everyday water bottle full-ups, or blend them in your favorite frozen drinks and smoothies.

Once you’ve made this goji berry juice recipe, you can begin to adjust the levels of sweetness and flavor. Sugar can be increased or decreased based on your preferred sweetness. You can remove the sugar altogether if you prefer a more raw fruit flavor.
Try sweet cara cara oranges or earthy blood oranges for a bitter sweet juice. Just about any orange citrus will taste great in this juice. If you prefer a clean goji berry flavor, leave out the juice and zest, and replace it with one more cup of water.
