Let’s face it, it may be June, but cold season isn’t over! If you’re feeling a spring cold coming on or want to fight the crud going around, I’ve got the perfect refreshing treat to boost your system!

For centuries Black Elderberries have been recognized for supporting the immune system. What I love about Black Elderberry Syrup from Gaia Herbs is that it’s made with organic whole food ingredients and contains organic Acerola Cherry fruit extract, a delicious and rich source of naturally occurring Vitamin C!

Join me in the kitchen this week for a delicious, organic, whole food treat everyone will enjoy during this season!



Yields: 4 servings

  • 1 /4 bottle Gaia Herbs Elderberry Syrup

  • 1.5 Cups Frozen Strawberries

  • 1.5 Cups Ice

  • Fruit Garnish (I used organic blackberries)

  • Water (as needed for blending)

  • Optional: 1T of honey to sweeten


  1. In a blender add the Gaia Herbs elderberry syrup, frozen strawberries, and ice.

  2. Blend until all frozen pieces are gone, adding water as necessary.

  3. Careful not to overblend, you're looking for the consistency of sorbet!

  4. Divide into cups, add your fruit garnish, and enjoy!
