This smoothie is light, fresh and delicious. It's also bursting with nutrients and antioxidants due to the baobab content.
"Baobab and soluble fibre make this incredibly potent as a weight-loss smoothie. The veggies and buckwheat contribute soluble fibre which helps, but the huge push is from the sky-high amounts of vitamin C from Baobab. A study by Arizona State scientists showed that people consuming high amounts of vitamin C burn fat 25% faster. So workouts are more effective!
Buckwheat groats (actually a fruit) contribute to weight loss effects because they are high in soluble fibre which suppresses appetites. You soak them overnight in water and a tsp of ACV (apple cider vinegar) to aid in digestion, then rinse and blend into your morning smoothie."
Tip: You can freeze the liquids into ice cubes to make a more chilled drink.
