How to use Moringa Powder
Moringa powder has a mild, grassy version of green tea-like smell. It tastes like “matcha” with a bit of earthly and vegetable-like flavour. From a health point of view, it is recommended to consume 1 tsp to 1 tbsp of Moringa powder daily. You can simply sprinkle the powder on the top of soup, stew or salad; add it to baking or pasta; Or make tea from it.
Today, I’m sharing 3 easy Moringa recipes to help you get started!
1. Moringa Chia Pudding
Chia seeds contain many of the nutrients that your body needs. In this recipe, I use 3 different types of seeds to make it healthier than ever! It is easy to make and can enjoy it anytime you desire.
Moringa Chia Pudding
- Whisk Moringa powder with 1 tbsp of hot water. (*see note)
- Whisk together Moringa milk, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, milk, vanilla extract and honey in a bowl or jar. Cover and refrigerated for at least 1 hour(best overnight).
- After the seeds absorb the milk, use a spoon to stir again and combine well.
- In a bowl or cup place a layer of chia pudding mixture, followed by coconut yogurt and berries, and repeat the process untillthe cup is full.
- Top with berries and black garlic cloves. You can sprinkle some Moringa powder on the top as well. Enjoy 🙂
- You can skip the first step by adding the Moringa powder together with other seeds. However, the powder might not be very well combined at first. Once the chia seeds absorb the milk, you can mix them well with a spoon. 🙂
2. Moringa Latte
This one can be described as a caffeine-free vision of “Matcha”! It is without caffeine but with even more health benefits! Enjoy.
- Add 1 tsp Moringa powder, honey, and 1-2 tsp hot water to a small bowl. Use a matcha whisk (or small whisk) to blend completely so no clumps remain.
