HOBIY - MyDhaba's Energy Drink

Presenting to you My Dhaba's signature energy drink - HOBIY (named after Honey, Orange, Banana, Ice, Yogurt :-)) Hope you will like it.

This is my mother's personal concoction that will keep us going throughout the day. I have been using this recipe for almost 19 years now. The best results are achieved if it is taken in the morning 30 minutes prior to the breakfast. We can drink this concoction before, during, or after any workouts. There are no artificial flavors, colors, physically additive ingredients or chemical preservatives used when compared to the ones marketed towards young people along with high levels of sugar and glucose, much better than a cola drink too.

Bringing ingredients together...

HOBIY - My Dhaba's Energy Drink Recipe

Serves - 3
Preparation Time - less than a minute


  • Honey - 2 tablespoons
  • Orange - 1, peeled and deseeded; or orange juice - 1/2 cup
  • Banana - 2, approx size used 9 inch
  • Ice cubes - 8
  • Yogurt or curd - 1/2 cup

    Method: Mix all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Straining HOBIY is optional which I don't do. Serve it chilled. Lemon peel garnish is optional.

That's one energy drink.

More than yogurt, we would prefer it with milk and and without the orange juice. Vijay(My H) often drinks that combination in the evening. Pick me up drink after a hard day at the office for him.

But I will definitely give HOBIY a try. yogurt and orange juice extra, that's dooable:)

Raji - enjoy! Let me know how it turn out there. Isnt it sooo delicious? :-)

Nupur - it is like green results from blending blue and yellow. Banana and orange fuse so well and after the parts merge with other ingredients they are no longer distinct. You get an exquisite taste. Please let me know about your experience with it.

Hi Indira - Your H will devour this in one go, take my word :-) I need to give a try and see how it tastes without yogurt and orange and by milk+banana+honey combination as you mentioned.

Just added the nutritional profile of this drink. Yogurt and Orange add lots of minerals and vitamins to it making it a healthy choice.
