SuperFruit Dairy-Free White Chocolate

Alisa Fleming ~ Have you heard of Baobab Fruit? I admit that I hadn’t when Baobest contacted me about a sample, but I was intrigued. After all, how could I pass up sampling “The King of Superfruits.” According to Baobest, Baobab has more antioxidants than acai, goji berries, or blueberries, and their powder is 100% organic, gluten-free, and food allergen-free. These are quite the claims!

I went with the natural choice first, and added Baobab to a morning smoothie. The Baobab powder is just lightly sweet and quite tangy. One serving of Baobab (to get all of the antioxidants noted) is 2 tablespoons. On the packaging, they recommend adding up to 2 tablespoons of the powder to smoothies or 1 tablespoon to a 16 glass of water. Unfortunately, I found this serving size unattainable due to the tangy / sour flavor of the powder. I was able to add 1 teaspoon or maybe 2 (depending on the add-ins) to my morning smoothie; any more and the flavor overwhelmed. As for the babaob water - wowsers! I think my taste buds just aren’t read for the taste of that much antioxidant power. That said, smaller servings equals a package that will last me two months!

The internet isn’t yet a-buzz with Babaob recipes, so I had to wing it a lot in my experimentations. I actually think it would be a great base flavor for dairy-free, raw cheesecake bites, but haven’t trialed it yet. Instead, I thought the silkiness of babaob powder would go nicely in a quick white chocolate. I kept it very cocoa buttery, with just enough sweetness, and the sweet ‘n sour contrast of baobab. The baobab sneaks up on you with a complex and tangy aftertaste. The end result is odd, yet somehow addicting …

Baobab SuperFruit White Chocolate

Adapted from my go-to dairy-free white chocolate recipe in Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook.

  • 1 ounce food-grade cacao butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon organic powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baobest Baobab Fruit Powder
  • Few drops vanilla extract

Stir together all ingredients until smooth, and pour into little molds (this makes just a wee, single-serve amount). Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to set up.

Have you tried Baobab? Any ideas for recipes with this tangy fruit powder?

    Oooh, this looks awesome. I only know baobab from the kids book The Little Prince. I knew it was a tree, so I guess Ishould have known it had a fruit too.

    I need some white chocolate in my life. Where do you get the food grade cocoa butter?

      Hi Katie! The stuff I’ve been using is from Blue Mountain Organics. Navita’s Naturals has some that I’m sure is good. I’ve also seen it for a fair price at Whole Foods (kind of bulk packaging as 365 brand). It’s usually priced from $15 to $20 per pound. Sounds like a bit, but it’s cheaper than buying chocolate in reality and way more fun :)

    Over the weekend, I created a Super Thick, Rich Sweet Smoothie using Baobab and no sugar. So, good and filling! Watch Vlog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbG5dEAvhFY

    Was just pursuing the internet for more recipes myself.
    Went to a health food fair this weekend where they were passing out samples of Baobab made into jello. They had used fruit juice, plain jello and the powder. .. . . . .other than that. . .I’m really not sure how they made it !!!
    My children really liked it! I may have to experiment here ! :)

    I wonder how it would work out in S’mores? I saw a s’mores experimentation party somewhere that opened my mind to the possibilities. This sounds worth a try.
