Peter’s Baobab, banana, mango and apple smoothie

  • 2010
From chef Peter Gordon.
What a great start to the day or a post-gym pick-me-up. Full of goodness
and a real pleasure to drink. If, like me, you have a juicer to hand then
make your own apple juice using 2-3 unpeeled apples cut into quarters,
juicing a finger of fresh ginger for some more comforting effect. Read the rest of this entry »

Kate’s South African Salad Dressing

  • 2010

From our chef Kate Magic.

Makes enough to cover a side salad for four, or a main salad for two. Takes just five minutes to make. You can use a blender if you like, but it’s just as easy to make this by hand.

The addition of Baobab to a salad dressing gives it a wonderfully refreshing edge, which offsets the richness of any good creamy dressing. Read the rest of this entry »

This delicious groundnut stew is traditionally eaten all over the African continent.  Recipes differ from region to region: in west Africa it is searingly spicy, while in central Africa cassava leaves are included in the stew.  This version has a mild to medium heat and we serve the spinach or cassava leaves on the side.  It is enhanced by the unique flavor of baobab fruit from Elephant Pepper’s Baobab Gold chilli sauce.

Serves 4

Sharp, sweet, creamy, fragrant and smooth and let’s not forget, packed with antioxidants too!! Another great recipe from the Yozuna kitchen.

This vitamin packed smoothie is like no other as it contains the fruit pulp of the Baobab. The baobab tree is the oldest tree in Africa and is known as the tree of life or the upside down tree. The fruit is naturally rich in vitamin C, packed with dietary fibres and also has a prebiotic effect on your digestion.

  • Prep time: 2 minutes
