707. Moringa and Mint Iced Tea
MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017
Try and include moringa powder in your daily diet. Add it to smoothies, oats, salads, soups, in milk or as a herbal tea. Adding fresh moringa leaves, flowers or the pods to your dals, curries, sabjis, soups etc is beneficial health wise.
Protein source in this recipe is moringa powder
By no means am I claiming or supporting any sort of fad diet that are the latest craze in the fitness world. I’m just trying to include non meat non fish dishes from which you can get your protein source.
MORINGA AND MINT ICED TEA
- Put the mint leaves and water in a blender.
- Process till the leaves are crushed completely.
- If you like you can strain the mint water or leave it as it is.
- If you have strained it then return it to the blender.
- Add mooring powder, honey, lemon juice and salt.
- Process for a few seconds so that the moringa powder gets blended completely.
- Pour the liquid out into a jug and chill it in the fridge for 1-2 hrs.
- Just before serving fill 2 glasses with ice cubes.
- Pour the moringa and mint tea over the ice cubes.
- Serve immediately. Enjoy a cool refreshing healthy drink.
- Some articles claim that adding moringa powder to hot water destroys the nutrients. To be on the safe side I don’t add it to anything that is really hot.
- Add fresh herbs of your choice like basil, tulsi, etc.
