Serves 4 / Tart-sweet goji berries are rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, and iron, and have been used in Chinese medicine for more than2,000 years (folklore maintains that gojis even improve attractiveness). Enjoy them sprinkled into tea, on soup or salad, in trail mix, or straight out of the bag. The more ripe your mango, the less sweetener you’ll need for this smoothie. If you can’t find fresh Thai baby coconut, look for packaged coconut water, available in natural foods markets.
