Garnished Fonio Smoothie

Fonio is a lip-smacking, gluten-free, nutrient-rich, low GI grain from the millet family. It has a light nutty flavour and fluffy couscous-like texture. OTI gluten-free white Fonio grain is rich in iron and amino acids and a source of zinc, phosphorus and vitamins B1 (thiamin) and B3 (niacin). Fonio is naturally gluten-free, and low in sugar, which makes it great for diabetics and those who are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease. It is, in short, the perfect new grain for juice-cleansing, and those who are health-conscious.

The OTI fonio grain in particular is perfect for smoothies for its very neat content. We have learnt in previous posts about how to use fonio to prepare other meals.

This recipe varies due to the fact that everyone has a preference when it comes to smoothies. Some prefer fruit smoothies, while others would prefer vegetable smoothies and sometimes, a mixture of both.

It is quite a simple process and requires less time and effort.

Good news is that OTI fonio is very clean so you don’t need extra washing.


  1. Pour OTI gluten-free Fonio grain out of the pouch into the blender.

  2. Blend the fonio grain for it to become a smooth powder.

  3. Add the powder to your own choice of mixed fruits, vegetables or both.

  4. Blend the mixture.

  5. Transfer the Fonio smoothie to a bowl, and top off with your desired toppings.
