I was sent a few sachets of baobab fruit powder from the Eden Project, to try. It's quite a fine, yellow powder that tastes a bit citrussy - imagine a softer-flavoured clementine but sweeter and tangier and you've more or less got it.
You can blend the powder into smoothies, juices or sprinkle over yoghurt. I've done a bit of trawling online and found that people also stir it into porridge, stews and curries as well. Basically you can use a sprinkling of baobab powder when you need a bit of a pick me up - it's packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre, so I'm told. It also seems to have a good amount of calcium, too.
