Authentic Product Pick: Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder

Authentic Product Pick: Aduna

It doesn’t get any better than enjoying a pumpkin smoothie on a blustery fall day. The delicious flavors help you feel warm on the inside while the nutrients work to keep you healthy and happy. But not all smoothies are created equal…I have a new favorite ingredient that really pumps up the nutrition factor. Meet my latest obsession…Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder.

What is baobab? It’s an amazing super food grown on the baobab tree in the African Savannah. Known as “the tree of life”, the baobab tree produces a nutrient-dense fruit loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and other essential vitamins and minerals. Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder is 100 percent organic and helps to support energy metabolism and the immune system. It also works to boost energy levels in your body naturally! Baobab has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any fruit in the world. Would you believe it contains five times the antioxidants of fresh acai berries and twice that of goji berries? This makes it an amazing addition to your daily diet, especially during cold and flu season.

Not only does Aduna sell this amazing product, they are a company that truly cares for the good of the world. Aduna works in partnership with a grass roots organization to harvest and collect the fruit from women’s cooperatives in eleven remote rural communities. They make sure that the workers are always paid a fair price for their work efforts, helping to support the local communities.

How do you include Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder in you daily diet? You can add it to baked goods, salad dressings, smoothies, juices…just about everything! If you are a smoothie fan, here’s a delicious recipe to get you started:

Baobab Fall Pumpkin Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 or 4 large figs (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 granny smith apple
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

Add all these ingredients to your blender and you are good to go!

Authentic Product Pick: barkTHINS Snacking Chocolate

barkTHINS Product Review

Chocolate lovers, rejoice! I’ve discovered a delicious treat that not only tastes amazing but is full of authentic ingredients. I recently had the pleasure of trying out barkTHINS Snacking Chocolate. It’s perfect for helping to satisfy that occasional sweet-tooth we all get from time to time. Best of all? barkTHINS are non-GMO verified and contain Fair Trade Certified ingredients. How cool is that? This company is on a mission to deliver goodness and bring happiness to consumers across the country with their blend of handcrafted chocolate mixed with America’s favorite snacking ingredients and hints of sea salt.

barkTHINS come in a variety of flavors including Dark Chocolate Mint, Dark Chocolate Toasted Coconut, and Dark Chocolate Blueberry Quinoa. My personal fave? The Dark Chocolate Almonds barkTHINS. Not only are you getting the amazing benefits of dark chocolate, you are getting the nutrients found in the almonds. I also love the Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed barkTHINS….they are perfect for Halloween! These snacks come in portable packages so you can take them with you on-the-go or leave them at work. Just grab a little piece of this tasty chocolate when you need a quick pick-me-up. You can even crumbled up the bars and use it as a topping for chia pudding or coconut milk ice cream. Yum!
