1. Kunun Aya (Ofio Milk)

It’s a highly nutritious and refreshing drink made from Tiger Nuts. Some call it Ofio Milk. The tiny tubers are peculiar with northerners popularly called Aya. The milk can serve as a substitute for the regular cow milk because of its healthy nutrients and most nursing mothers drink it because of its ability to enhance breast milk production.

6. Koko (Pap)

Pap the popular name known by Nigerians is a day breaker for most northern Nigerians. It’s mostly taken with Kose da doya—Bean cake and friend yam. Just like kunun zaki, koko is made out of millet, corn, guinea corn and local spices. The only difference between both drinks is koko is taken hot while the other is a colder version.

It is eaten as a breakfast beverage by older children and adults, and its consumption increases considerably during the Muslim fasting period of Ramadan.
