Recently named as one of the top 10 superfoods of the year in the U.S., goji berries have actually been used in Asian countries for thousands of years in hot soups and desserts.  Traditionally, Chinese prefers to eat goji berry warm and cooked.. BUT to break that tradition, I decided to make it into a low calorie refreshing summer treat!

Inspired by a drink I found at Wholefoods, I mixed elderflower syrup to  add a floral aroma to the superfood drink.  Hope you enjoy this delicious drink as much as I did!
