ZOBO DRINK




Hi. I guess my new eating scheme is no news, right? To those just joining me, I’m on a ‘eat clean’ mission. I am dumping artificial foods, sugar and I’m embracing healthier options. I made zobo drink last week and it is 95% free from artificial ingredients. I modified the common zobo recipe while making this but I’ll include the common zobo recipe in this post.  Zobo drink is easy to make and takes very little time.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Pineapple cubes

2 cups Zobo leaves

2 tbsp honey (I had it in mind to add honey but I ended up not adding because it tasted good without it.)

1 tsp Vanilla flavour

1 Ginger (I didn’t have any in store so I didn’t use it)
 
Juice of 1 lemon

PREPARATION

Rinse the zobo leaves

Peel the ginger

PROCEDURE

Boil the zobo leaves and ginger in 5 cups of water until tender; this should take about 15 minutes. Retrieve the liquid by pouring the mixture into a colander (net). Set the liquid aside and pour the tender zobo leaves back into the pot, add a cup of water and boil for 5 – 7 minutes. This is to retrieve whatever zobo concentrate might be on the leaves. After 5 – 7 minutes, drain the liquid and add to the previous liquid. Wait for the liquid to cool. You can pour the cooked leaves away.

Now I’m going to explain how to make natural zobo drink (my style) then the common zobo drink.

NATURAL ZOBO DRINK: When the liquid is cool enough, add the vanilla, lemon then the pineapple cubes and refrigerate. You can add honey before refrigerating.

COMMON ZOBO DRINK: When the liquid is cool enough, add different flavours of powdered drink (e.g foster clark, nutri – c) and refrigerate. Add sugar if you feel like. Attached are pictures of some of powdered drinks.
