When I have a rough day or need a little pick me up and always grab my bag of Goji berries and make myself some tea! I even have a baggy of them in my purse to take with me where ever I go.. Below you'll find the recipe for this amazing tea, I hope you'll love it as much as I do!
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 Tbsp of Unrefined Coconut Oil
- Two to Three Tbsp of Goji Berries
- Add a tea of your liking, I love using floral ones with Goji Berries
That;s it! Wait till the berries are plump and the tea is fully seeped and enjoy your happy tea! Bonus, Goji berries are super yummy once they have plumped and soaked in Coconut oil. Enjoy!
