Amarula Cream, A Taste of Africa
Every now and then I come across a product that is not only good tasting but also good for the soul. So is the case when I got the chance to try Amarula Cream.
Amarula Cream is made from the fruit of Marula trees that grow across Africa's subequatorial plains. The fruit, roughly the size of a plum, has a creamy, nutty taste and contains more vitamin C than the average orange. Amarula Cream reflects the fruit's nutty flavor. While delicious on it's own, it's a perfect compliment to coffee. It's my absolute favorite way to enjoy Amarula Cream.
What drew me to the liquor was Amarula's commitment to protecting African Elephants. The Amarula trust aides in finding ways the elephants can share limited resources with their neighbors - the people of Botswana. The trust funds a program known as Ecoexist (partnered with Texas A&M University) that monitors the elephant population and migration in hopes of developing strategies to limit conflict between elephants and people.
The Amarula trust also aides in job creation in eco-tourism in Southern Africa. The Trust funds an Eco-Training project that allows students to undergo a month long training course to become field guides in Namibia. The Namibian tourism industry is a fast growing industry and accounted for 14.9% of the gross domestic product in 2015. As the industry increases so does the need for skilled field guides.
Give Amarula Cream a try in your coffee or over ice and help support a worthly cause!
