Nigerian Drinks

Nigerian drinks include both soft drinks and all kinds of edible juice that are prepared and consumed in Nigeria. This article aims to showcase some of those drinks and explain how the ordinary person can be able to make them for personal consumption.

Apart from the popular brands like Cocoa Cola, Pepsi, laccasera, Viju milk etc. we are going to learn how to prepare some of the locally made drinks in Nigeria.

I find most of them to be very tasty and also healthy. Take the zobo drink for instance. I had a taste of this drink for the first time at Bori Camp Portharcourt, those days in secondary school; I visited a friend who happened to be from Yoruba, the best makers of the Nigerian zobo drink.

That was the first time someone offered me a glass of zobo, at first I objected but my colleague compelled me to take a sip and that was it… I was sold!!!

By reading this article you will learn how to make some of the popular Nigerian drinks, all of them would be soft drinks that could be consumed by both adults and children alike. I got a message from a member of the Kitchen who wanted to make the chapman Nigerian drink for the kids.

So we are going to be making Chapman, the zobo drink and also a particular kind of fruit juice. We have lots of fruits in Nigeria but the average Nigerian person is yet to learn how to get the best from these fruits.

So most time we just allow them to waste away when we have them in large quantity, the best thing would have been to make fruit juice out of them.

Fruits can be eaten fresh or turned into a very tasty juice. We have pineapple juice as one of the Nigerian drinks. There are other popular drinks in Nigeria like orange juice and a blend of different fruits, some of these fruit juice are very healthy and helps to fight heart diseases.

Over the past few months I have been writing about healthy Nigerian foods and why it is necessary to eat healthy foods in order to live a longer and healthy life.

I just finished a free eBook that would teach you how to make healthy foods. It is a must-have for every Nigerian, that is why it is free. The information contained within is considered priceless, no kidding. Learn more about The Science of Healthy Nigerian Foods.

Back to the topic of the day, we are still on popular drinks in Nigeria.

Top Three Nigerian Drinks

let’s begin with the zobo drink; have you had a taste of zobo before? This drink is both tasty and also considered very healthy. It is one of the few drinks in Nigeria that are made with only natural ingredients.
Both the zobo leaves that is used for coloring and all other ingredients are natural. You can decide to use synthesized pineapple flavor or use the real pineapple, aside that, it is all natural.

No artificial coloring and no preservative.

Here is How To Make Zobo Drink

Chapman

The next Nigerian drink on my list would be Chapman, a few people prefer to call it shapman. it is a combination of some of the already popular brands and few other ingredients. For some reason, this is the most acceptable drink for cocktail parties in Nigeria. An expert member of the Kitchen motivated me into writing this recipe for the Chapman drink.

Here is How To Make Chapman, I bet you are gonna love it.

Fruit Juice

The last but not the list would be fruit juice, this tops the list of Nigerian drinks. A chilled cup of freshly made fruit juice has the capacity to stir up your neural pathway and ensure a successful day. You probably know what I am saying if you have tried a glass of freshly made juice early in the morning. What we made here is a combination of orange and pineapple juice.

    I think chapamn is the best drink in Nigeria, anyday, any time it is still my best. I also love zobo because it is medicinal, but chapman does wonders to my taste buds, just like a chiled bottle of coke 😀 thanks for the drinks

    I like chapman too, I also like zobo. OMG I didn’t see the pineapple juice… That is my best. Give it up for the juice. It relaxes my brains when I am in the mood of reading.

    Hello Chy, I just want to say a big thank you for all your wonderful recipes, I just purchased your cookbook and frankly, you did a fantastic job. Thanks for the drinks. For me, I think I would go with zobo, since it got those ingredients like ginger/garlic and even pineapple… All in one drink!

    I love zobo drinks, in fact that is my best juice. But what can one use to preserve it, like other fruits juice.

    reply
  7. Chy Anegbu  March 18, 2014

    Folasade, thanks for your comment. Actually, you can not preserve zobo for more than four days except you want to use preservative (which I don’t recommend). However, you can referigerate for up to one week.

      To preserve longer than 4 days, u can prepare it without sugar and the natural fruits like pineapple and orange. You can then add sugar and pineapple or any other fruit extract at the point of consumption. This is because sugar will increase the rate of spoilage by causing it to ferment
