Moringa Green Smoothie Recipe

Moringa Green Smoothie Recipe Healthy Vegan

Are you familiar with Moringa Leaf?

Well I wasn’t until a few months ago. Peter came home talking about this new superfood and to be honest sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the new superfoods popping up! But then I started seeing Moringa at our local farmers market and that’s when I thought I better check this stuff out…

Turns out…

Moringa is the most nutrient-dense plant in the world!  Sorry Kale;) It contains over 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants! It grows in the Himalayas and is used to fight weight-loss, constipation, arthritis, cancer, diabetes… the list goes on and on.

It tastes similar to matcha and has a grassy smell. It mixes very well in smoothies, and teas. I’m sure you could put it in granola, or oatmeal. So far our favorite is in the smoothie recipe listed below:)

You can buy Moringa online or maybe even at your local farmers market. We get ours from Raw Revelations. (A little side note: the owner and employees of this company are sooo knowledgeable! You can really ask them any questions about superfoods… they know it all!)

      It’s balanced really well, and doesn’t taste too green, I especially like the flavour the date and cacao adds! 👍🏼

    i just started using Moringa in my smoothies. The one I just made was spinach, celery, baby carrots, peach, red grapes, and banana. I added almond milk, honey and 1 tsp. of Moringa. Delicious!

      As it’s getting cold now and smoothie is tough to drink. What can I do with the moringa leaf power in the morning beside putting it in a cup of tea. Help and thanks

        Hey Madonna!

        Great question, I do love using Moringa in tea now that the weather is changing. You can add it to warm milk with sweetener of your choice. But as for other recipes, it’s great in granola or oatmeal. You can also add it to curry dishes or baked goods. I’ve added it to cheesecakes, it gives off a great color. Are you familiar with the website tastespotting.com ? You can type moringa in there and it should come up with a few ideas!

    Hi I tried blackberries,raspberries, 1 banana, coconut milk and two spoonfuls of Greek natural yogurt, some grated ginger and one teaspoon of moringa. I find this very filling and lasts me till lunchtime.
