And For Breakfast Today

I'm back from the gym and I'm sitting down to eat my breakfast. Actually, that isn't true. I'm not sitting down to eat my breakfast I'm sitting down to drink my breakfast as I've made myself a Fruit Smoothie. I made one on Sunday after using Google to read a lot of different recipes as inspiration and I was surprised at how easy they are to make and this is how I made it!

A Baobab Smoothie Before Being Blended

Recipe

6 Ice Cubes (My ice cubes are small, so they were a handful)
1 Small Banana
125ml Milk
1 Tablespoon Greek Low Fat Yoghurt
1 Tablespoon Linseed
6 Strawberries (it was about a handful again)
1/2 a handful of Dried Fruits (to use the packet up!)
1 Tablespoon Baobab Powder
1 Teaspoon Honey

Method

Add Ingredients to the blender. Blend. Serve.

A Baobab Smoothie

The Baobab powder has been sent to me because it is being hailed as the new Superfruit and I must admit it sounds impressive. According to the press release it has more antioxidants than gojiberries, Six times more vitamin C than oranges, Six times more antioxidants than blueberries, Twice as much calcium than milk, Six times more potassium than bananas, More iron than red meat and More dietary fibre than other fruits including apples, peaches, apricots and bananas.

I think it's a good supplement to add to Smoothies and other things (I'm not doing much baking at the minute because of BB's diabetes and trying to understand all that before adding in the complication of my home baking) and from other mentions I've read on the internet you need to cook the items for less time than the recipe states.

Daddy was a little shocked when he looked up the price of a tub of Baobab powder on the Holland and Barrett website, and I understand that at £14.80 for 250g it's not something that we can easily add to the budget but if it lives up to is promises then I'm sure that the Minvita Baobab Superfruit Powder will become a popular purchase!

I was sent a tub of Baobab Superfruit Powder to review.
