Moringa Leaves Drink

Make a Healthy Beverage in 15 Minutes!

Making this moringa leaf beverage is very easy and simple. This herbal drink is made of only a few ingredients. This puree is very nutritious due to the abundant antioxidants and fiber stored in these leaves. Nutritionists say that moringa leaves have the capacity to help prevent cholesterol from forming in the body and also may help control diabetes.

Use only tender moringa leaves, as matured leaves tend to be slightly bitter when cooked.

How to Make Moringa Leaves Drink At-a-Glance:

Saute cumin seeds, pepper, and washed moringa leaves in half a teaspoon of ghee. Once the mix cools down, grind them with some grated coconut (optional), yogurt/curd, and salt to get a smooth puree. Transfer it into a mixing bowl. Add water and some more yogurt. Mix well. Adjust the consistency by adding water. Drink a glass full of this beverage. Enjoy!

Now, let me share the detailed recipe.

Some Important Tips:

Moringa (drumstick) is a seasonal vegetable. Hence, whenever you find moringa leaves, collect them.

I suggest this, mainly looking at the abundant nutrients stored in these leaves. They are tasty too.

Make a thick paste of the sauteed moringa leaves, pepper corn, and salt. Store it in the freezer. Take out whenever you desire, mix it with some yogurt/curd, and water. Consume just as a drink!

You can even make a spicy chutney out of them.
