Looking for an antidote to the current seemingly never ending grey skies?  This Baobab and Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowl might just be perfect.  It’s mid February at the time of writing and here in the UK it’s G.R.E.Y.

So what’s not to love about a big bright bowl of colour that’s also sort of like ice-cream for breakfast.  That’s never ever going to be a bad thing!

It’s also jam packed with vitamin C and anti-inflammatories.  And if you’ve never heard of Revolution Foods Baobab Powder or why it’s so fantabulous for you then you can remedy that with this blog post.  Their premium organic baobab powder is wild crafted and because the fruit comes out of the shell as a powder, no griding, processing or heat treating is necessary!

The only preparation you need for this is to have some fruit already in the freezer.  You can buy the fruit and peel, chop and freeze yourself or even simpler grab one of those super handy bags of pre-chopped fruit from the freezer aisle!

The purpose of using frozen fruit is to give the mix that wonderful sorbet/ice-cream texture.  Otherwise you’ve just got a juice.  In a bowl.

Which may be a result if that’s your thing ?

Another tip is to put the bowl in the freezer for around half an hour before you make the frosted smoothie.  This helps keep it silky soft for a little while longer.  You know, while you sit back and relax with your eyes closed, imagining that beach and palm tree somewhere ?
