Zobo (Hibiscus Flower) drink

Happy Friyay 😃😅!!

The weekend comes with meal planning if eating healthy is a goal for you. Therefore, due to the crave for soft soda drinks which are usually sugar energy dense, I advice my clients to make homemade drinks to manage their cravings. 

DRUMS ROLLING........................Zobo (hibiscus) drink recipe is to the rescue as one of such drinks.

Zobo is a specie of Hibiscus flower which is dried and used to make the zobo drink. It's name & peculiarity originates from the Northern part of Nigeria.

Having lived in the North for sometime, This has been one of my all time favourite.

Ingredients Used!!!
