And if that’s not enough, coconut milk and coconut oil lend even more nutritional bang to this quiet, green latte. The mighty coconut is a great source of medium-chain fatty acids which have anti-microbial and anti fungal effects, and serve as an excellent source of efficient energy for your body.

Step by Step Instructions
Toss all ingredients into a small pot over medium-high heat. Use a small whisk to mix all ingredients well. Gently whisk until it almost comes to a boil – but keep it below a boil.
Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to finish the latte and whip it to a froth, being mindful to keep the blender immersed and not to splatter yourself with hot liquid!
Pour your Moringa Latte into your favorite mug, (sprinkle a little nutmeg on top if you like) grab your favorite book, put your feet up, and enjoy!
