Ogi Zobo Trifle

Hello Fam. Hope your week is going great.

Last week i gave you a new Nigerian breakfast, Akara in a hole (Recipe HERE), today i am giving you a New Nigerian dessert and I call it Ogi Trifle.

So what is Ogi trifle? Let me start with what  trifle is for the benefit of those who are not familiar with it.

Trifle is an English dessert that is made up of atleast 3 main ingredients which are cake, custard and fruits. It is almost usually served at christmas and there are different variations of this dessert. I have created Nigerian trifle using 2 Nigerian food Ogi (pap) and Zobo. Dang! was it banging or what? oh yeah it was.

This dessert is quick to make if you have the cake made beforehand. You can use home made cake or if that’s too much trouble buy from the stores.

Valentine is coming up and if you are dining in and have been thinking of what to make for dessert then give this yummy creation a try. Let’s do this:

Freezing time: 6 hours

Total time: 6 hours 5 minutes

INGREDIENT

Zobo drink (Recipe HERE)

DIRECTIONS

1) Put Zobo drink in a freezer safe container and freeze for atleast 6 hours

 

2) Take out frozen zobo. Using ice cream scoop, scoop into a cup Zobo Slush I left the zobo for days in the freezer so it was rock solid. All I did was leave out for about 30 minutes to thaw a bit so I could scrape and scoop into cup

3) Add chapman into the zobo. This reacts with zobo and slush is formed. IMG_6839 4) Stir the drink
