You can't deny that when you eat something delicious that is full of nutrients you feel fantastic. Here is a fun Sweet Coconut quinoa pudding recipe with moringa that we made up. Yes flavor and double plant based protein: quinoa + moringa + (default) lots of love. I love treating quinoa as if I were making rice pudding or a yummy oatmeal dessert, especially when Im after an extra boost of energy.
1/2 cup quinoa
Pinch of long grain wild rice (optional)
1 cup milk of choice (we used almond)
2 dried figs chopped
1/4-1/2 cup fresh coconut chunks chopped
1 chunk of ginger finely chopped (add to preference)
1 handfull of almonds and macadamia nuts (or any nuts you prefer) chopped
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1-2 apple bananas chopped
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 bay leaves
1-2 teaspoons ghee
1 tablespoon Maui Medicinal Herbs organic moringa powder
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Chop the coconut, nuts, ginger and bananas.
Add to pot the milk, quinoa, wild rice, cinnamon, ginger, salt, bay leaves and ghee.
Bring them to a boil and let cook for 5-8 minutes.
Stir and lower heat to low simmer for 5 minutes with figs and bananas.
Taste test and add maple syrup to taste for sweetener.
Let cool and add moringa before eating, mixing well. *note with all heated recipes you should add the moringa at the end of cooking as the nutrient content decreases with heat.
And share this recipe.
Of course we'd love to here your version if you do it better.
Moringa is an easy, efficient and affordable source of food-based nutrition that is well absorbabed by the body. In just a few spoonfuls you are able to gain a healthy amount of iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Most of the magic in moringa leaves is in the body's ability to reabsorb nutrients at higher levels than it can with traditional multi-vitamins.
Whether you are healthy or making a shift to gain nutrition, adding a scoop to any salad, smoothie, juice or fun sweet recipe is an easy way to boost the vitamin, nutrient and protein value of your food.
