    MeliBug's Note:

    This is a very popular drink in East Africa. It's like the ones you can buy at the grocery store but you can add your own variations to it with lime juice, honey, cinnamon, or vanilla.

      I have been making this since I was pregnant with my first 4 years ago. A friend from West Africa showed me it. I loved the slight sourness and an excellient source of Vit. C. The kids love this drink too. I am glad you shared.
