How To Use Moringa?
You can use the leaves fresh in your dishes (salads, smoothies) or the powder, which is how I’ve used it. I add it mostly to soups, stews and smoothies (where the flavor is masked) or add 1 tsp to hot water to make tea. Its flavor is similar to green tea; a little earthy but good. It is also available in oil form. Enjoy!
