If you’re looking for a tasty way to get your greens in, look no further than this moringa green smoothie recipe. Not only is this smoothie packed with leafy greens, it’s ultra creamy and delicious.
Moringa, often referred to as a “miracle plant,” has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. The moringa leaf has been utilized as a treatment for over 300 diseases, typically consumed in the form of a capsule, powder, or oil. For this healthful smoothie, we used moringa in its powder form.
The moringa powder is what makes this smoothie more nutritious than most other green smoothies. Moringa tends to have a greater amount of essential nutrients, compared to other natural foods. For instance, you’ll find three times the amount of potassium in moringa than you would find in bananas, and seven times the amount of vitamin C than you would find in oranges.
The best part of this moringa green smoothie is that you can reap all those healthy benefits in the form of an appetizing beverage. The spinach, kale, and moringa that go into this smoothie are masked by the pleasant, sweet flavors of dates and banana.
If you’ve ever been hesitant to try a green smoothie because you think it will be bitter, give this recipe a try and it will change your mind. And we mean that literally! Moringa, when consumed on a daily basis, could increase your alertness, focus, and mental clarity. How’s that for a simple green smoothie?
