A refreshing yogurt based drink that is popular in Japan. Not exactly the same as the real stuff, but very close, and the ingredients are common. If you couldn't find citric acid, but Fruit Fresh is mostly citric acid, and it works fine for this recipe. The syrup will keep in the fridge for at least a few months, if not longer.
