What do I use to 'plaster' exterior block?

I have a 20 year old home with a block basement. The builder had applied a stucco-looking coating of cement material over the exposed concrete block. I need to copy the same covering. What type of material is used to add this finish to the exterior of concrete block?

Mix 2 parts mason sand and 1 part portland cement, mix together add water and mix to its smooth, apply with a trowel or mag float, then float it with a wet wood float for a nice finish, you have to work fast after the cement is on the wall it will dry quickly.
