    • Good to hear, although I designed this recipe for busy mums in need of a boost, not sure if some of the ingredients suit young children’s taste. Please do let me know how did you go?

  • Thanks Missey – this drink looks so gorgeous, love the colour. Bet it tastes good too. :)


    • So do I, mum. The dark red color always reminding me of the good old English Rose that has the intensive red and fragrance :)
      Cheers, Missey

  • So glad to hear that you are going to try this.
    If you are using dried goji berry, soak them in water for 5 minutes or so to re-hydrate them. I find it by doing so the berries will mix in with the rest ingredients better.
    Hope this little tip helps.
    Cheers, Missey
