Fortifying milk

Recipes / Published on 05 / 09 / 2021

This tropically colored drink with tangy notes reminds me of my early childhood. If you haven't tasted it yet, you're missing out! Let's talk a bit about the flagship ingredient: the baobab fruit! By its composition, it is one of the most nutritious fruits if not the most nutritious. It contains 18 amino acids (including the 8 essential ones), fatty acids, proteins, a large amount of vitamins, minerals and fibers(dietary fiber improves the quality of the intestinal flora). In other words, it's your ally to (re)gain vitality! Today I'm particularly generous so I'm going to share two ways to make the recipe. Here we go!

List of ingredients

  • 2 cups of milk(the traditional recipe uses cow's milk but I personally use coconut milk. A side note: there is a good chance that you are lactose intolerant if you are an adult of African, Native American or Asian origin.)
  • 50g baobab powder
  • Sugar to your taste(but try to keep it healthy!)

Equipment

  • Blender
  • Saucepan
  • Whisk

Preparation methods


The traditional one

  1.  Heat the milk in the saucepan
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients
  3. Stir for a few minutes until all the ingredients dissolve
  4. Leave to rest for 2 hours in the fridge
  5. It's time to taste!

The quickest one

  1. Pour all the ingredients into the blender, starting with the milk
  2. Mix for 1 to 1min30
  3. Leave to rest for 1 hour in the fridge
  4. That's it, you can taste!
