Five Homemade Moringa Powder Uses

Five Homemade Moringa Powder Uses

A look into five homemade moringa powder uses to live a healthier life

With an increasing number of people becoming health conscious in today’s world, plant extracts—in the form of superfood powders—have become a staple to aid in living a healthy lifestyle. A superfood powder makes it simple to incorporate additional nutrients to your diet and everyday life. It’s easy to transport and use, and is a healthier replacement than commercial energy bars and powders. Moringa is the one of the world’s most nutrient dense superfoods.  One of moringa’s greatest qualities is its versatility—it’s full of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants, and has a wider nutritional span than its competitors like kale and matcha (add moringa vs matcha blog link once uploaded). While moringa powder is most commonly used in smoothies and shakes, there are several homemade moringa powder uses. 

MORINGA OATMEAL

A breakfast staple and a rich source of antioxidants and fiber, oatmeal is one of the most adaptable dishes out there. One of the easiest homemade moringa powder uses is to add two to three teaspoons of the Miracle Tree Superfood Powder to enhance the nutritive qualities of your meal and provide an energy boost at the start of your day. Follow this recipe for a nutritious early morning meal. 

What you will need:

  • 1½ cups rolled oats 
  • 3 cups milk 
  • 2-3 teaspoons of Miracle Tree's Superfood Powder
  • ¼ cup dried blueberries 
  • A handful of chopped almonds 

Instructions: 

  1. In a non-stick pan, cook the rolled oats in milk. You can use any variety of milk here—cow, oat, soy or almond.
  2. As the oats start to soften, add the Superfood Powder. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for two minutes. 
  3. Add the blueberries and mix well.
  4. Serve in a plate and top it off with the chopped almonds.

MORINGA LATTE

Despite the fact that moringa is caffeine-free, its rich abundance of amino acids, minerals and vitamins make it a natural energy source. It’s a healthier option than coffee and matcha, and wakes you up without the typical crash from caffeine. And while a moringa latte is a great morning drink to wake you up, it can also be consumed mid-day or in the evening. 

What you will need:

  • 2-3 teaspoons of Miracle Tree's Superfood Powder
  • 1 cup almond milk 
  • 2 drops vanilla extract 
  • Agave syrup per taste (optional)

Instructions 

  1. Add the Superfood Powder to hot almond milk.
  2. Add a hint of vanilla extract to enhance the flavor.
  3. Add agave syrup if you want a sweeter drink. You can also use maple syrup, honey or stevia as sweeteners.

MORINGA FACE MASK 

What we put on our skin is equally important to what we consume. Thanks to its high amounts of antioxidants—which fight free radicals and prevent ageing—and skin-friendly vitamin E—which reduces scarring and UV damage, using moringa powder is a great addition to your skincare routine. Here is a simple homemade moringa powder use: A face mask packed with antioxidants and vitamin E.

What you will need:

Instructions: 

  1. Mix the moringa powder, honey and egg white in a bowl.
  2. Apply an even layer all over your face and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Wash off with a warm cloth and water.

MORINGA AVOCADO HAIR MASK 

Another simple homemade moringa powder promises shiny, voluminous hair. With moringa powder’s bountiful amount of antioxidants and high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s the ideal deep conditioning hair treatment for strong, lustrous hair. Due to the presence of amino acids and minerals like zinc, phosphorus, magnesium and iron, moringa promotes hair growth and keeps the scalp healthy and moisturized.

What you will need: 

  • 2 teaspoons of Miracle Tree's Superfood Powder
  • 1 ripe avocado 
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice 
  • Honey to bind the ingredients

Instructions: 

  1. In a large bowl, mash one avocado and add the Superfood Powder.
  2. Add lemon juice and mix well.
  3. Add honey to attain your desired consistency.
  4. Apply the mask to damp hair and leave it on for 20-30 minutes.

CLEAN MOUTHWASH

If you check the ingredient list for most conventional mouthwashes, you will see that they all contain alcohol and are full of chemicals like fluoride, saccharin, parabens and triclosan. Using moringa powder is a safe and clean substitute, which keeps tooth enamel strong and promotes good gum health. Moringa powder helps prevent inflammation of the gums and is a gentle cleanser. It can also slow down tooth decay by inhibiting the growth of destructive bacteria and ensuring that the good bacteria remains. You can directly use the Miracle Tree's Superfood Powder as a tooth and gum cleanser or mix it with water to ease the consistency. Rinse for two to three minutes and release. Do this every night before bed.
