Baobab Smoothie Recipe (Dairy Free and Gluten Free)

BRF-131104-Blog_smoothie

Did you know Baobab powder has 10x more antioxidants than acai or goji berry, acts as a prebiotic, and that one serving (2T) has 24% of your daily recommended dietary fiber and 25% of your daily recommended Vitamin C? It’s also a source of potassium and magnesium.

So how do you add this new superfruit into your diet?

Bumbleroot’s plant-based, endurance athlete Chef Matt White came up with this recipe while training for the Ironman.

Matt says:

This smoothie is a complete meal replacement, containing protein, essential amino acids, complex carbohydrates and almost all of the daily vitamins your body needs.

Drink it for breakfast, as a pre-workout meal or as an after workout drink.

I used Baobab in all my smoothies in training leading up to the Ironman race.  It provided sustained energy throughout the day, even after intense workout sessions.  It also provided extra vitamins and amino acids to help keep me healthy when my immune system was depleted.
