Step-by-Step Guide On How To Make Moringa Powder
#1. Harvest
If you have moringa trees in your backyard, simply harvest a bunch of stalks, about one kilogram (two pounds). You can also buy some at the wet market. Always opt for the mature, rich green leaves.
#2. Sanitize
Sanitize a basin, pan, bowl, or any vessel that you can use to wash the leaves. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of baking soda into the water to clean the dust and other impurities off the moringa leaves.
#3. Cleanse
Wash the moringa leaves, removing dead and yellow leaves and any infected parts.
#4. Hang
Shake the excess water off the leaves, tie the ends of the stalks together, and hang them upside down in an enclosed place that doesn’t get direct sunlight, to preserve the nutrients.
#5. Air Dry
Leave the leaves hanging for three to four days till they are brittle to the touch.
#6. Separate
Separate the leaves from the stalks and stems. The fewer stems there are, the smoother the powder will be.
#7. Grind
You can use a blender to grind the moringa leaves into powder form.Run from 30 seconds to a full minute or till you achieve the desired texture.
#8. Store
Keep the moringa powder in an airtight container to preserve the nutrients, and store it in a cool, dry place. Keep the container closed at all times to keep moisture out and to preserve a longer shelf life. The powder will last up to six months without preservatives.
Now you’re ready to try your moringa powder and experiment with a myriad of ways to enjoy it! You can make hot tea, cold tea, or iced tea out of it, or you can add it to your smoothies, shakes, and salads.To make moringa tea, just add a teaspoon of moringa powder to hot water.
