Wintermelon with Wolfberries Sweet Soup 冬瓜枸杞甜水

By Rumblingtummy @RumblingTummi
The weather has been really hot and I am getting migraine again.   Really miss that 20°C+ weather during my break.  
While I was in the market, I saw some really nice winter melon.  Remembering that it has a cooling properties, I got some home and turn it into a dessert for tonight's dinner.
Here is my Winter melon with wolfberries sweet soup 冬瓜枸杞甜水.   I have adapted this from one that I tasted in a party many years ago and I like it.  This time round, I added wolfberries aka goji to sweeten it further.  
Just love it being served cold.  A nice cool dessert to end the night.
