Nutrition

This delightful beverage is loaded with nutrition! A mere 10 grams of moringa leaf powder is an excellent source of fiber, protein, iron, vitamin E, vitamin K, and as well, contains high levels of vitamin A and calcium. 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. And thanks to high levels of lauric acid – the oil really goes to work on inflammation.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1 

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.

Step 2

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!

Step 3

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!
