Iced Moringa Mint Lemonade

Cinnamon Tree Organics Moringa Lemonade

I have so many fond memories of delicious dishes that were part of family meals at my Achchi’s (grandmother) house. I cherish those moments and I wanted to share them with others through food. Moringa was commonly used in everyday cooking in Sri Lanka and I wanted to try something different. Why not a beverage that is refreshing and extremely healthy? So, I tried a moringa Mint Lemonade that I am confident you will love. Who doesn’t enjoy a refreshing lemonade? My hope is also to help spread the word on why this superfood moringa needs to be a part of your daily routine.

Servings 4 (8 oz glasses)

Ingredients

  • 1 – 2 tsp moringa powder
  • 1 liter chilled water (sparkling, flat or half and half)
  • 1 limes, sliced thinly
  • 1 lemons, sliced thinly
  • ½ cup of fresh mint leaves
  • ½ tsp of pink salt
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar or agave syrup to taste
  • Ice (for serving)

Directions

  • Add all ingredients in a pitcher and give it a good stir. Save some lime, lemon and fresh mint leaves for a colorful garnish later.
  • Let it sit for at least 2 hours in the fridge for citrus to infuse.
  • Serve with plenty of Ice. If you like your lemonade to have a little sparkle, top it off with some sparkling water right before serving.
