Now we know the ingredients used in making zobo drinks. Let’s now go into the step-by-step procedures involved in making a nutritious zobo drink.

  • Step 1

Add the cleaned zobo leaves to a pot with enough water to completely cover them. Allow the zobo leaves to simmer for a few minutes on low heat.


1- The ginger and garlic are then added, along with extra water, and the pot is left to boil for at least 30 minutes. This is the amount of time it will take the zobo leaves to soften fully.


2-  Turn off the fire and lay the Zobo leaves aside to cool fully after boiling them with water, garlic, and ginger.

  • Step 2

After the Zobo leaves have been cooked, proceed as follows:


While the zobo cools, blend the pineapples. Once the zobo leaves have cooled, sift them out. After that, strain the juice through a chiffon cloth to remove any remaining particles, leaving just a smooth juice.

-Combine the pineapple juice with the other ingredients. To make sure there are no particles remaining, sift it again through the chiffon cloth.

-At this point, you can add whatever artificial flavors you like (artificial flavor not healthy to the body). Use enough pineapple and oranges, instead.


-Refrigerate after pouring into bottles.

-Serve with sliced fruit and ice.
