How to eat Moringa powder

It may be tempting to just add it to any food that you are already cooking. While this is an easy way to do it, you should avoid heating the powder for more than a few minutes as it is most nutritious when consumed raw.

Add it to your smoothies

Those morning smoothies are a great way to get Moringa powder into your diet. Simply add your desired amount into your smoothie and enjoy! Our Green Mango Protein Smoothie is a great choice.

Sprinkle it on your food

This one will take some experimenting on different dishes that you make at home. Try it in dips, salad dressings, and even guacamole!

Iced Drink

For a fresh and nutritious drink add honey, lemon, mint leaves, ginger, and Moringa powder  into a blender and mix with water. These ingredients are delicious together but the ratios will differ depending on how sweet you will like your drink and how much Moringa you are taking!
