THM Baobab Powder Recipes
Are you on the THM baobab wagon yet?! Baobab is quite the trending topic in most THM FB groups and communities! Everyone wants to utilize this amazing fruit and its potential to heal. There are so many delicious baobab recipes out there, and now twelve of them are going to rounded up in a baobab bundle for you to try at home!
What is Baobab
Do you remember Rafiki's Tree on the renowned Lion King film? That, my friends, is a baobab tree! These trees grow in Africa and their fruit falls right off the tree, dried, and ready to crush into the powder that we have in our cupboards.
Benefits of Baobab
- Helps to balance blood sugar levels.
- Filled with many minerals and vitamins.
- Promotes feelings of fullness which can help weight loss.
- Has both vitamin C and Iron. Both are needed to absorb the other.
- More antioxidants than any other superfood in the world.
- High fiber content may help digestion.
- Minimum processing
- It is filled with vitamin C and iron!
One of the coolest little tidbits that I have learned about Baobab is that we need vitamin c to absorb iron, and we need iron to absorb vitamin C. This plant has both, so you get absorption power with baobab. And here is something radical, it has six times the amount of potassium than in a banana!
Where do I buy Baobab?
Ever since listening to the THM podcast and realizing the effort that the THM sisters put into this product, I don't buy anywhere else but from the THM shop. There was once that I bought some from a local health store, and it truly tasted different and not as pure.
Baobab Powder Baking Recipes
Baobab baking recipes are not as prominent as baobab drink, smoothie, or 'cold' recipes. Yet there are plenty of baked recipes that use baobab! Check out a few of these.
