Have You Ever Tasted Baobab Powder From The Fruit Of Africa’s “Tree of Life?”

Thank you PandaVita for sponsoring this post. A great way to stay energized this summer, as well as throughout the year is with Panda Vita’s Organic Baobab Powder.

Baobab fruit is delicious and is the only fruit in the world that dries on the branch.

The Baobab tree or so called “the tree of life” is native to Africa, but it’s also found in Australia and India.

It is one of the longest living trees on earth. I had heard about the Baobab fruit when I lived in Ghana, but had never tasted it, so I was really curious about it and decided to try it out.

PandaVita kindly sent me a pouch of their delicious organic powder to try and since then I’ve tried it in various ways and I am so glad I did.

Pronounced “bey-oh-bab”, this exotic fruit comes from a tree revered in Africa for its nutritional and medicinal value.

Baobab fruit looks similar to a small coconut with a hard outer shell.

The package arrive in a small zip-lock pouch.

Baobab powder is naturally dry, which makes it easy to extract and package.

In Africa, the baobab fruit has been used medicinally for centuries to treat fevers, malaria and gastrointestinal problems to vitamin C deficiency.

What Does Baobab Powder Taste Like?

It has a sweet, tangy, citrus-like taste, which will give your drinks and smoothie a spike in flavour. The taste is nice and not overbearing.

It also doesn’t make your drinks or food taste sour.

The great thing about the powder is that you can add it to practically anything and everything you eat and drink throughout the day.

From water to smoothies, cocktails, refreshing drinks, as well as sauces and puddings. You decide.

A tablespoon or two will do, but you can add more depending on your taste.

The possibilities are endless.

When Is The Best Time To Take It?

You can always enjoy the massive energy-boosting effect of Baobab Powder at any time of the day.

Choose it as part of a pre-workout smoothie or an early morning snack to get your day off to a good start.  I like to have one before heading to work in the morning.

I should be taking this to work with me for another energy boost in the afternoon.

I usually don’t make a lot of smoothies, but since using the powder, I find drinking smoothies mixed with the powder keeps my energy up, and cravings for sugar and sweets down.

I’m confident that most of you will love it.

Why Is Baobab Powder Good For The Body?

Baobab Powder is a rich source of Vitamin C, which contributes to:
– energy release
– immune function
– collagen formation
– healthy, glowing skin
– reduction of tiredness and fatigue
– absorption of iron

It is also almost 50% fibre and contains more antioxidants than any other whole fruit.

Two to three teaspoons of Baobab Powder will provide you with 33% of your daily Vitamin C requirement.

If you are looking to increase the number of calcium-rich foods you eat, then Baobab Powder is definitely something worth considering.

Another great thing about Baobab Powder is that it contains 50% fibre.

Our bodies need both soluble and insoluble – the powder contains both.

Benefits For Your Skin

Baobab’s skin benefits are more than impressive. The seeds and fibre extracted from the Baobab fruit are also used for the production of a variety of products which you can use for your skin.

Make a face mask out of the powder for healthy, glowing skin.

I was especially impressed that this is a pure fruit powder with nothing added to it.

It’s free from gluten, wheat, dairy and it’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Since embracing a minimalist lifestyle and simplifying my life  I have also looked into various ways to be more healthy.

In order to boost your daily productivity, your energy levels need to be up, so you are not lagging throughout the day. Baobab Powder will help you do that in a safe and healthy manner.

Other Ways To Add the Powder To Your Meals

  • add to water
  • add to yogurt
  • add to sauces
  • add to juices
  • add to cookie or muffin mix
  • add to breakfast muesli
  • mix into soup or porridge

If you heat it up, I am assuming it probably loses some value.

I actually have a bag of the dried boabab “bits” at home – I brought them back from my trip to Gambia, as I had a lot of the juice while I was there. I never knew all the health benefits though, so this makes an interesting read! x

It’s good to know that it’s organic though I think I may not be able to buy it myself because that won’t be available here in my country (PH). Organic foods are free from chemicals that’s why it’s better for our health.
