Uplifting Goldenberry Ginger Juice

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Goldenberries, the bright orange fruits that look like little paper lanterns, have just landed at Imperfect! Goldenberries are tart and sweet with a flavor our team would describe as “slightly tropical like a mango and yet somewhat tomato-y.” Sound interesting? After removing the green husk, you can enjoy them as you would any fruit, in a smoothie, as a snack, or in this Uplifting Goldenberry Ginger Juice.

Because this is a juice, you need to strain out the pulp leftover from the goldenberries. But if you’re pro-pulp and want to make this recipe waste-free, you can skip step 2, and maybe even throw in an avocado or some other berries to enjoy this drink as more of a smoothie.

Makes 2-3 servings 


  • 1 cup goldenberries, roughly chopped 
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp honey, or more to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Strain the puree using a fine mesh strainer and compost the remaining pulp. 
  3. Add more honey, to taste.
  4. Serve cold with ice. 

Recipe notes and variations

  • If you love the flavor of goldenberries but want to chill out the tartness, try mixing in other fruits like peach or pineapple. If you’re turning it into a smoothie, try swapping out the water for milk or your favorite milk alternative.
