Grown as a tree, yet referred to as a vegetable and a herb (one of the most nutritious ever grown at that), Moringa Oleifera is truly a food and a natural medicinal miracle that never seizes to amaze us.

We’ve spoken about the moringa leaf powder benefits before, and have shown you some of the top moringa supplements there are, but now we’re going to chat about the best moringa smoothies that you can prepare once you’ve got yourself some of this wondrous green superfood champion.

Why smoothies?

Because they’re an easy and extra-delicious way to take a lot of nutrition at once. Check out why this plant deserves to be a center piece in shakes and smoothies.

Thanks to its impressive nutritional profile, the moringa uses men have discovered are sooo many. Without plunging too much into the matter, we just can’t miss mentioning that a daily moringa dose guarantees you between 6 and 10 servings of vegetables! (yes, it’s that powerful).

Moringa contains 18 amino acids, it’s brimming with plant protein, vitamins, minerals and beneficial volatile oils such as oleic acid. Moringa has been known to treat the root of an ailment rather than the symptoms. Some even say it can help treat more than 300 diseases! More research and studies need to be done to further explore the potential of the herb.

Now without further ado, let’s see which the top 5 moringa smoothie recipes are…
