I’m currently trying to up my iron intake, and this post-workout smoothie with added Moringa really hits the spot. It’s easy to make, with a few ingredients and powerful powders instead, so it takes absolutely no time at all to make.
I’m just a beginner with the Moringa powder as yet, which means that I don’t use more than 1 tsp. It’s highly recommended to start slow with 0,5 tsp up to 2-4 tsp of the powder. I accidentally got too much in a smoothie once when I just started out with this and man I felt nauseous and unwell. It was a horrible experience. So take it slow.
