I’ve partnered with PURA VIDA MORINGA – who produce the moringa products that I am thoroughly enjoying at the moment. I love that their product is organic and ethical. Their business was born from compassion and a desire to bring pure, ethical moringa products to the world. They harvest from a farm in the foothills of Nicaragua, whilst ensuring the highest quality product.by Anastasia of KindEarth.net
Moringa delights me! The moringa tree is said to be one of the most nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich foods on our planet. Well worthy of our attention. It thrives where other plants fail and has been used traditionally in Asia, Africa, and South America to treat a myriad of different ailments for a long time. For those of us who don’t live in tropical or subtropical regions with a moringa tree sprouting up in the local village square, can instead, easily get it in powdered form.
Moringa is a powerful nutritious gem, so I’ve decided to find different ways to weave the leaf powder into my cuisine. I’m pleased to share my Moringa Energy Ball ideas below.

Super healthy seed and ginger inspired moringa leaf powder energy balls. Raisins to naturally sweeten.
1 heaped tablespoon moringa leaf powder
150g (1 cup) mixed seeds (pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, hemp seed and flax seed)
1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon powder
½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
100g (⅔ cup) raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Grind seeds along with the moringa powder and cinnamon in a food processor until you get a coarse meal.
Add the raisins and vanilla extract and the process until everything clumps together.
Roll into balls.
Either serve immediately or pop into the fridge. They will keep (in a sealed container) in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
You can also freeze these to increase their longevity for several months (they are edible immediately from frozen).
