Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.
I am constantly looking for natural ways to boost my health. I am currently drinking a smoothie for breakfast everyday, so I like finding extra ingredients to throw in. I sometimes add in flax, hemp, green veggie powder, anything to give my smoothie an added boost. I use water and a protein mix as my base, add in fresh or frozen fruit, and then add in some extras.
A recent “extra” I found was Kaibae’s Baobab Fruit Powder. This naturally sweet powder comes from the superfruit Baobab. It is considered a superfood, filled with antioxidants, and is also a prebiotic.
There are so many health benefits packed right into this powder! So what is Baobab Fruit exactly? Glad you asked!
The Baobab powder comes from the Baobab tree in Africa. It is considered the “Tree of Life”. This amazing tree has been used over time as a source of water and food in Africa. It is one of the oldest living trees on our planet. During the rainy season, the trunk absorbs the water and later on in the year it produces fruit, even if the surrounding area is dry.
Benefits of Baobab:
- It will boost your immune system.
- It increases your energy.
- It is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C,
calcium, potassium, thiamine, fiber and vitamin B6calcium, potassium, thiamine, fiber and vitamin B6calcium, potassium, thiamine, fiber and vitamin B6calcium, potassium, thiamine, fiber and vitamin B6.

- It aides in weight loss since it is 50% fiber.

The Baobab Fruit is sustainably harvested in Northern Ghana. Kaibae uses ethical practices to ensure that the working communities have access to education and healthcare.

I will use it in a smoothie, as you have shown above. I’m trying to think of other creative ways to use it, but that’s all I got right now.

I do plan on using Baobab powder in a smoothie with other fruits and vegetables. Maybe try it in a loaf too!
I learned that it provides lots of calcium, antioxidants and many more nutrients!
I’ve seen videos from another blogger and brand using baobab powder. She made a smoothie and muffins. I plan to follow those recipes if I win!
I would definitely use it in my strawberry banana smoothie or my pineapple mango smoothie and its a plus that it boosts energy.
I would use it in my daily smoothies. I would also look for other ways to use it.
