Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves tightly packed
  • 2 tsp moringa powder
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice

  • tsp rock salt
  • some ice cubes

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • After straining the mixture, return it to the blender.
  • Add moringa 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 mint and moringa tea over the ice cubes.
  • Serve immediately. Enjoy a cool refreshing healthy drink.

Notes

  • 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.
  • Use a sweetener of your choice like sugar, jaggery, stevia, etc.
  • I strain the liquid for hubby but mine I don't as I love mint.
  • Process it well if you are not going to strain the liquid.
