Baobab Powder Tropical Drink Recipe
This baobab drink is just the right combination of tart and sweet, with tropical flavors from pineapple and baobab powder mixing seamlessly with cherry and mint. Enjoy this refreshing drink as a cocktail or "mocktail" and get all the baobab powder benefits to boot.
Blend pineapple juice, cherry juice, baobab powder, and peppermint flavor with a hand blender or personal blender until smooth.
Put 1/2 cup pineapple "ice cubes" (see notes below) in the bottom of two 16-oz glasses. (You can skip this and use regular ice cubes if desired.)
Pour 1/2 of the juice mixture into each glass.
Add club soda and stevia (if desired) and stir gently to mix.
Pineapple Ice Cube Trick
Ice is great for keeping drinks cool - but it also tends to water them down as it melts. Fruit "ice cubes" are a great alternative! I love frozen pineapple chunks for this recipe.
Simply place fresh or canned pineapple chunks on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet or baking pan. Be sure to keep a little distance between the chunks to make sure they don't stick together. Place in the freezer for about 2 hours.
These made my baobab juice ice cold within seconds, and kept it cool for a long time without losing any of the flavor! You can try this with other fruits as well, but pineapple really holds up well in the freezer.
