Yum. My family just loves this pretty pink drink. Watermelon and strawberries get a beautiful splash of citrus from the lime and baobab powder. Chia seeds provide a mild nutty taste along with a bonus dose of fibre, minerals, protein, antioxidants, and essential omega fatty acids.
Baobab powder has a wonderful tangy, citrusy flavour. It is unusually rich in fibre, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Baobab is also packed with minerals including potassium, magnesium and calcium, making it a great addition to any post-workout snack.
Potential benefits of baobab consumption include improved skin (anti-aging), gut and immune health. It is also believed to promote fat burning and liver detoxification.
For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:
- 2 cups diced seedless red watermelon
- 1 cup fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut water
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 to 2 Tbsp baobab powder*
- juice from 1/2 to 1 lime*
- pure stevia, maple syrup, or raw honey (nonvegan) to sweeten as desired
*Note: adjust lime and baobab powder to desired tanginess
