Wake up and feel amazing with my baobab sunshine smoothie bowls. This recipe reminds me of being on holiday. Creamy coconut milk, pineapple and orange are a winning combination. With the weather being so wet and dreary here in the UK at the moment, I am resorting to making my own sunshine in the kitchen!
I added a good dose of Organic Burst baobab to these beauties for an extra pick me up. Baobab is full of natural vitamin C and iron, which is just the thing if you’re feeling tired and depleted of energy. It has a slight citrus flavour which works beautifully in these fruity bowls. I’ve also added a little of my favourite spice, turmeric, which is a powerful anti inflammatory with a multitude of benefits. It’s secret is curcumin, a powerful healing compound. Did you know that in some studies, curcumin has been proven as effective as Prozac in treating manic depression? In fact, some studies show curcumin to be even more effective than prescription drugs! I won’t rave about it for too long, but seriously, take a minute or two to do some research on this miracle spice and you’ll see what I mean.
