Quite sour in flavour but undeniably healthy minus the use of simple syrup. We replace it with richberry to have a more natural flavour instead of artificial. So you could enjoy the yummy goodness without worrying the calories. Just one bite of richberry's miracle berry and sip!

Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
