How We Are Using Baobab Fruit Powder?

There are many different ways to use Organic Baobab Fruit powder, we tend to like to keep things simple.  The easiest approach is to mix about 6 grams of Organic Baobab Fruit Pulp powder into 12 ounces of water.  Shake and Drink!  It really does not get much easier than that.  You might want to add some honey if it is too sour for you – we tend to like the taste of straight Baobab.

The other thing we have been doing is baking with Baobab.  Baobab Brownies – Baobab Cookies – all taste great.  You can also use Baobab powder to replace gluten in  a recipe.
