Organic Baobab Powder: Chocolate Brownie Recipe & Review

Have you heard of Baobab Powder? No? You’re not alone, I hadn’t either.

It’s a “super food” from that originates from Ghana, a pod that grows and when open has white powdery fruit inside (Baobab Powder). Well it turns out this powder is super rich in a whole host of goodness. How did we not already know about this?!

It includes:

  • 6 x Antioxidants of Blueberries
  • 6 x Vitamin C of Oranges
  • 6 x Potassium of Bananas
  • 50% of Fibre Per Serving
  • More Magnesium Than Coconut Water
  • Twice As Much Calcium as Milk

So this super food is sold online and across the world by a great company called Panda Vita!

It can be used in drinks, smoothies, baking and cooking, there’s loads of great recipes on their website.

I’ve made a favourite in our house which is Chocolate Brownies! I was going to make them low fat, but decided to keep all the fun and add the healthiness in by adding in some Baobab Powder.

The recipe is below, I have to say this super food is A-MAZ-ING! It tastes so good, it stretches so far, you don’t need to use much and it brings a sweet, yummy, yet subtle flavour, I didn’t think Chocolate Brownies could get any better, but this a new level of goodness.

Christmas Eve Box: Step by Step Tutorial

The latest tradition at Christmas seems to be Christmas Eve Boxes, I think they are a great idea, so they will be an annual tradition in our house.

I’ve put together a step by step guide on what to put in your boxes.

These are only suggestions, so feel free to tweak wherever you feel appropriate and these boxes are based on my children who are two boys aged 2 & 3 and a baby girl aged 3 months.

The part I love best about Christmas Eve Boxes is Pyjamas & Socks! There’s nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning with brand new PJs and Socks on, it just makes opening your presents that much better!

T-shirts! These weren’t in my original plan but are festive cute and extremely cheap from Primark, so why not?!

Activity books from Poundland! Christmas Eve is the big build up before the big day, so something festive to keep them distracted and busy is a great idea!

Books (at the time of purchasing these were 3 for 2 in M&S), why not enjoy a new bedtime story before the big guy drops off their gifts? These aren’t particularly festive books, but they are lovely classic stories that caught my eye when out shopping.

Festive DVDs of their favourites are a great way to keep them entertained and get all excited for Santa’s big visit.

Add in some festive treats like yummy chocolate biscuits to nibble on, popcorn to eat while watching the movie, chocolate gingerbread melts for their hot chocolate, candy canes are a Christmas must and why not add in their name in Chocolate to personalise? (Plus don’t forget a special glass to drink chocolate milk from)

Babies are hard to buy for, but first Christmas gifts are ideal! Add in a bauble, stocking and comforter!

To add some fun throw in some reindeer dust, snowballs (they actually scrunch like real ones), a tin with a letter from Santa, a plate to put out the mince pie & carrot and some reindeer food (oats & glitter).

Put all in a festive box and I added some red straw and bells to give it a little jingle!

Then wah-la! You have Christmas Eve Boxes, display them  or fold them all away…it’s up to you.

I got the boxes from ASDA they were only £3 each at the time of purchase!

I hope this helped and feel free to comment with any extra suggestions that you put in your Christmas Eve Boxes, I love new ideas!

Merry Christmas!

Having a Christmas party? Get some festive toppers printed! Or even better get Christmas pictures printed of your family, friends or even your pets!

If there’s an occasion…there’s a topper!

They come in a range of standard sizes but you can ask for a specific size, there is also a wide range of toppers you can choose from:

Seasonal, Special Occasions, TV and Film, Charity, Sports, Computer Games & Toys and a few other suggestions too, but don’t forget you can completely personalise your own as well.

What better gift than the gift of cake, with the festive season coming up you could cater to the entire family from Football toppers for Dad to Frozen toppers for little girls, they have them all!

The website is really easy to use!

I chose what toppers I wanted, uploaded the pictures and went through check out within a matter of a few minutes!

I chose a range of cakes to show some great ideas and how great photos and logos come out on the cakes.

I chose a large cake topper for my Niece’s Baby Shower, they had a template design on the website so I just typed in her name and the date of her baby shower and they created it for me! It came as a round template (as I’d chosen) but on a rectangle piece of icing, so I could either cut round for a circle cake (which I did) it could of gone straight onto a rectangular cake, so there are a couple of options.

I also got 12 cupcake toppers, they could have all been the same or all different. I chose six images so got two of each.

As you can see my blog logo stands out great, I think this is such a great way for businesses of any type to put their logo out there! I know I’d remember seeing a companies logo more if it was on a cake than just a card!

The photographs of my children are so clear and the kids loved it seeing their faces on the cakes! I thought it could be great for a Christening or a Birthday party!
