Recipe: Berry Delight
- ¾ Cup Navitas Naturals Cashew Whole Nuts
- ¼ cup Navitas Naturals Coconut Palm Sugar
- 3 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Lucuma Powder
- 2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Goji Powder
- 1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Flax Seed Sprouted Powder
- ½ cup reduced fat unsweetened coconut shreds*
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice powder
- ⅛ tsp sea salt
- 3 Tbsp canned pumpking puree
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2½ cup all-natural brown rice crisp cereal** (divided)
- 1 cup fruit-juice sweetened dried cranberries
- ⅓ cup chopped Pecans (optional)
For best results, add the ingredients in the directed stage (and not all at once), to achieve optimum texture: Place the cashews in a food processor, and grind into a coarse flour. Add the coconut shreds, coconut sugar, lucuma powder, goji powder, flaxseed powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt, and blitz to combine. Add the canned pumpkin and vanilla and blitz once more to form a wet dough. Add 2 cups of the brown rice cereal and process until ground into fine crumbs. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of cereal, cranberries, and chopped pecans (optional), and blitz just for a moment to coarsely chop the last round of ingredients, but retain most of the texture.
Lay a piece of wax or parchment paper down on a flat surface, and spill the “dough” out on top. Use your hands to firmly press the mixture into a 1-inch-thick rectangle, compressing as much as possible to get it to “stick.” Lay another piece of wax paper on top, and use a rolling pin to firmly roll the dough into a ½-inch flat layer. Remove the top paper, and re-press together any pieces that may have drifted from the main rectangle. Cut into 16 squares and serve.
Will keep for 1 week at room temperature, or 2 weeks refrigerated.*Sold at many natural food stores. If unavailable, use regular unsweetened coconut shreds.
**Choose a variety without added sugar, like Barbara's.

1) High protein (about 12%), and are a complete protein. This is good for anybody, but particularly noteworthy to vegans, who choose not to get their protein from meats.
2) Decent fiber content (about 10%)
3) 18 (!!) amino acids
4) Like most sweet fruits, high in carbs and calories. 100 grams give you about 350-380 calories; roughly 3/4 from carbs and 1/4 from fat.
5) 6 vitamins, 8 amino acids, 11+ minerals (more in trace amounts)
6) Carotenoids, unsaturated fatty acids (this is a good thing), phytosterols (help lower cholesterol), and other healthy (or theoretically healthy but not particularly well researched) phytochemicals.
Enough with the technical jargon. These berries are great in cereal, smoothies (once hydrated), and tea. For tea, try this:
Put water, a small number of berries (6-15ish) and a teabag in your cup, microwave for about a minute per teacup (time varies), drop a small amount in your favorite tea along with the teabag and let the berries and tea steep for about 3 minutes.
This adds a subtle character to green tea (plus an unusual, tasty snack to do with a few of the sips). The flavor seems to blend well with chai and jasmine too. This may work differently for those who use creamer.
I recommend that you try a bag, keeping in mind that you may need to soak the berries in water/tea/whatever in order to make them soft, and see what you think.Read more ›

The Himalania are MUCH better. But they cost almost twice as much, so if I had to buy again, which one would I buy? I'm not sure. The Navitas brand was crunchier (like a stale raisin. Not sure if I even like them. The Himalania were VERY good and addictive (which might be bad since you might eat too many).
Check out the video, you can see I can even crack the Navitas brand in half. Sorry for the bad sound!!
I rated it a 3 of 5 since it is "just ok". If you are buying them for power and nutrition, then they are fine. If you want the taste , then they are not worth it.
Added on Jan 30, 2011: If you read the reviews on this product carefully, you'll notice that many of the 4 and 5 star reviews sound like they were written by people responding to a Mechanical Turk assignment asking them to review the product. Most of the 4 and 5 star reviews don't say that the reviewer has actually purchased the product--they just contain general, positive info about goji berries.
