Product Review: Oluji Pure Cocoa powder.


Morning Sweets,
Yaay!! I have finally (after procrastinating for so long) decided to start doing reviews of some weight loss and wellness products that i have used. These reviews could help you make your decision on whether to use them or not.

Today, its 'Oluji pure cocoa powder' I have been using this product since early last year when i started my journey. I was very skeptical about it, you know how we feel about some Naija made things na, but i still tried it anyways. I have been hooked ever since!



What i like about it:

  1. The price: I buy mine for N600 which is awesome, compared to some foreign products and its shelf life.
  2. It lasts long: I use a can of 300g, for about 2 months before it finishes. I use about a tsp at a time.
  3. Its rich in nutrition: High in Protein content, high in fibre and carbs too.
  4. Its low in calorie. It comes to about 12 calories per table spoon. This is great news if you ask me. 
  5. Rich in antioxidants: Great for the skin, it makes the skin glow. Read more info on the benefits here
  6. Contains no additives, its PURE cocoa!! 
  7. Kids can eat it too. I lace my kids' pap and tea with it a times, then i add honey, they cant tell the difference. Hehehehe!
How I use it: 
  1. I use a teas spoon of it daily in my coffee.
  2. I use it in baking.
  3. i use it in my smoothies.
  4. I use it in my face mask. 
  5. I used it to make my chocolate cube here
What i don't really like: 
  1. It has a slightly bitter taste, I like to think its an acquired taste. You should get used to it with time. 

Cheliz' rating: 5 Thumbs up!!! 


Many stores, pharmacies and supermarkets carry this item, so it shouldn't be hard to find. I have been using this product for over a year now, and i can firmly say that it is GREAT! Quickly add this to your shopping list for the weekend. Lol.

Who has used this product? Do you love it as much as i do? God bless.
Cheliz.

  1. Thanks a lot Cheliz! My dad bought this product and has been taking it alone at home cos we all feel its bitter and he has been taking it since june and it hasn't finished So I must say it is every inch worth the price and more. I never knew it will help in this weight loss journey oh! Thank you for this info. Ehn you said its good for baking pls is it this powder that is used in making chocolate cake? And pls what's the quantity used wen baking? Like say I am baking with four cups of flour how many cups of this cocoa can I use. Thanks

    1. Lol! I like your dad o jare. He sabi better thing. Yes i use it to bake red velvet cup cakes. Depending on how rich you want the chocolate taste to be, u can use half cup to every 2cups of flour, start small if you dont like the rich taste. Kill the bitter taste with some honey. Yes its also used in baking chocolate cakes. Hope u enjoy it. Thanks and Cheers.

  4. Thanks Cheliz, this is a great piece. Come to think that this special gift of God has been with us for decades without our coming to realizing its tremendous health benefits! Better late than never?
    I am sure your blog will help thousands to grab this cheap way to healthy living. A cup of Oluji Pure Cocoa Powder a day may be all you need to take medical bills off your expenses checklist.
    One major advice though: try this powder on its own for enhanced benefits.
