Mango, moringa & nettle recovery smoothie

by veronica

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.

This recipe yields enough for one person.

  • 2,5 dl  almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2 dl of frozen mango cubes
  • 1 pc small banana, ripe
  • 2 tbsp nettle powder
  • 1 tsp moringa powder
  • Put all the ingredients in a blender, and mix until smooth.
  • Serve immediately.
