Making Wonjo and Baobab

So in todays video me and Martina is making some Gambian drinks. Or mostly Martina. Here you will find the recipes for the drinks as well.

1/2 dl wonjo (can be bought in West African stores)
1 liter of water
About 2 tablespoons of sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Place the wonjon in a bowl. Pour over boiling water and let cool or pour over cold water and refrigerate overnight. Strain out the wonjon with a fine-mesh kitchen sieve or cloth. Season with sugar and vanilla essence.

2 tablespoons baobab powder (available in well-stocked stores)
5 dl of water
5 dl milk

Stir in baobab in water. Let stand for a while, preferably overnight in the refrigerator. Strain if necessary. It depends on how fine-grained the baobab powder is. Pour in milk and stir. It is possible to make the drink only with water. You can also make it more like a milkshake and flavor it with e.g. banana or coconut.
