Strawberry, raspberry, banana, almond milk and baobab vegan smoothie

--> recette en français



    Today, this is a new smoothie "recipe" I share with you. It's always an occasion to hydrate oneself and add some fruit to our daily need, we can create so many combinations that we can rarely get bored with smoothies.


   The first French strawberries called Gariguettes have already arrived, indeed we had a mild Winter weather so they are quite early this year. They are very savory and you can eat them just like that without any sugar. I'm eager to go back to the self pick-up place near where I live to pick up strawberries, raspberries, cherries and summer vegetables.



   Going back to the smoothie, I added a ripe banana so I didn't have to add sugar, and frozen raspberries from last summer. Adding frozen fruit is a good alternative to ice cubes that will just add unnecessary water to the smoothie. To have a creamy texture, I used vanilla almond milk. 





   I also added a superfood I have been testing lately: the baobab powder. It's made with the pulp of the fruit that surrounds the seeds and is very interesting from a nutritious point of view because it's rich in calcium - if you're vegan or dairy intolerant for example - vitamin C and fibers. Besides, it's very good for the kids, the elderly and the sporty people. Finally, it's a great probiotic!





   You can use some every day, as a short-term diet or use it from time to time only, diluted in water, non-dairy milk, smoothies or even in a pie or cake. It brings a nice slight acid touch.

Strawberry, raspberry, banana, almond milk and baobab vegan smoothie
L’intérêt nutritionnel de la pulpe de fruit de baobab repose sur  sa  forte  teneur  en  Calcium,  Vitamine  C  et  fibres.  Elle contient aussi d’une manière significative des vitamines du groupe  B  (thiamine  B1,  riboflavine  B2  ou  niacine  B3)  et  des acides aminés. Elle est considérée comme un fortifiant pour tous :  enfants,  personnes  âgées,  sportifs,  et  elle  est particulièrement conseillée pour garder forme et vitalité ! La poudre  de  baobab  est  aussi  un  pré-biotique  de  grande qualité (améliore la flore intestinale) grâce à sa haute teneur en fibres solubles. - See more at: http://www.bioalaune.com/fr/actualite/5813/bienfaits-du-baobab#sthash.Dt6qsaaJ.dpuf

  3. I love this smoothie! I agree the best way to make one is with frozen fruit. The consistency is just so much better. I'm going to keep my eye peeled for the bao bob powder you are using. This is the first I've heard of it! Pinned and yummed!

  10. Find out how many calories are in a banana, whether it makes a good workout snack. ... Furthermore, though the calories in banana are low, they contain a satisfying amount of fiber for you to feel sufficient satiated after eating.
