Raspberry and Baobab Lemonade

This is my penultimate recipe for PONA, but it is one to get you in the midsummer mood .  I may be typing this in the middle of a thunder storm, but the forecast looks good for a little sunshine over the holiday.   I have always loved old fashioned lemonade and think it is the perfect cool down drink for summer.   This lemonade is zingy and refreshing, the baobab marrying perfectly with tangy fresh raspberries and lemons.

So if you are looking for a non-alcoholic drink idea, why not give the a go.   It is great for adults and kids alike and it would make a great addition to any midsummer table.  Not to mention, you are gaining all the nutritional benefit of baobab.  I love the brilliant red colour and like to load my glass with ice, fresh mint leaves and a few raspberries and slices of lemon.

Raspberry and Baobab Lemonade – serves 4 – 6 

200 g fresh or frozen raspberries, defrosted

2 – 3 tbsp of sugar or equivalent sweetener

1 tbsp baobab

Juice of a small lemon

6 dl of water/ sparkling water

fresh mint, lemon slices, fresh raspberries to serve

Place your raspberries in a blender with the sugar, lemon juice and baobab.  Blend until smooth, add a little water if it becomes to thick to blend.

Pass the raspberry mix through a fine sieve into a large jug.  Top up with 5 dl/ 1/2 litre of water.  Give the lemonade a good mix and taste.  Add a little extra sugar if too tart, or an extra squeeze of lemon if too sweet.

Serve the lemonade over ice with some fresh mint, slices of lemon and a few fresh raspberries.
