Goji Hemp Milkshake with Raspberries

1 cup shelled hemp seeds, soaked overnight 
3 cups filtered water 
1 tsp pure vanilla powder or 1/2 vanilla bean 
1/2 cup dried goji berries, soaked overnight 
1 cup raspberries 
3 Tbsp raw agave nectar or other raw sweetener
1) Strain water from soaked hemp seeds and goji berries and place them in a high speed blender along with remaining ingredients. 
2) Blend until you get a smooth, creamy texture. 
3) Pour in glasses, garnish with goji berries and sprinkle with hemp seeds.

BENEFITS: Research shows that eating berries -- like blueberries, acai berries, cranberries, strawberries, and cherries -- offer definite health benefits. It may be because berries like the goji berry are filled with powerful antioxidants and other compounds. Goji berries also have compounds rich in vitamin A. Antioxidants minimize damage from free radicals that injure cells and damage DNA. When a cell's DNA changes, the cell grows abnormally. Antioxidants can take away the destructive power of free radicals.
