Moringa the Miracle Tree

4 Tips To Add Moringa Powder in Your Recipes

I just have to say this, i'm a food lover and I'm always looking for new ways to make super healthy and tasty recipes... especially if they contain moringa. I tend to bake cakes, muffins or bread because they are very easy to make. When it comes to children, they are more likely to eat green and funny recipes made with moringa than a bowl of salad or spinach. This is one of the reasons why I use moringa powder. A few tablespoons (8-10g) of this powder contains three grams of fiber and three of proteins. In addition, it has a high vitamin A, calcium and iron content, and most of the nutrients that we should take to have a healthy diet. This means I can make my bagels and muffins to become healthy and nutritious by simply adding moringa in the recipe. I've been using this green powder in my recipes for months and I've learned some tricks that I', going to show you to make your life healthier without having to take moringa capsules.
  1. Don't be afraid to add it to all the recipes that come into your mind. You may have difficulties to feed your children with Moringa, but remember: it's green! My kids love my green recipes, while adults are often surprised when they see it. You have two options: highlight the green colour or hide it. If you want to highlight it, add peppermint extract in your muffins. If you want to hide it, use moringa powder in chocolate recipes, like brownies.
  2. Start smoothly, simply replacing two tablespoons of traditional flour with moringa powder. Make sure you like the taste and the final texture before adding more in your recipes.
  3. Follow the quarter-rule. This rule means that you can replace a quarter of the amount of traditional flour with moringa powder. For example, in a recipe that needs a 1 cup of flour, you can use up to ¼ cup of moringa powder + ¾ cup of wheat flour. If you add more than that, you probably will not get volume, rise and the desired texture.
  4. Add moringa powder together with the other dry ingredients and sieve it all. In doing so, you make sure that everything has mixed properly and it will be green-lump free 🙂
