Zobo drink

I remember posting zobo drink picture over eight weeks ago on my instagram page with the caption “Zobo drink recipe up on the blog later today”. I wanted to re share recipe yesterday and I couldn’t find it only for me to realise I never did publish it eight weeks ago! It’s been sitting in my drafts all the time! I need me a PA now for real. Too many things to do and so little time…Anyway, today is a good time to publish the recipe as it’s so hot in London right now and I must have had more than a litre of this awesome drink today 🙂

Zobo drink is a favourite drink in Nigeria  ìt is also known as sorrel drink or roselle. It is said to have health benefits, I love how its easy to prepare and how refreshing it is. Find below how I prepare mine.
