Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up it seems fitting to focus on chilled sweet treats. Expect lots of ice creams, lollies, refreshing drinks and raw desserts in the next coming weeks. Treats like these decadent Moringa lime chocolate tarts!
The lovely Jacquelyn from FERA kindly sent me some of their Moringa powder to create some nutritionally dense desserts. I loved finding out about her story and the reasons behind starting her business. She suffered with chronic health issues, which she was able to overcome naturally by changing her diet and adopting a more holistic lifestyle. Her journey is something I can relate to as a fellow chronic disease sufferer. I always find such stories inspiring. Stories that drive people towards a career path with the sole purpose of helping others in the same boat.
If you’ve never heard of Moringa, it’s basically a powdered form of the Moringa leaf, which is one of the most nutrient-dense plants on the planet packed with minerals, essential amino acids, antioxidants, phytonutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds.
It’s a very easy ingredient to incorporate into the diet. Add a teaspoon to your morning smoothie, porridge/oatmeal or homemade juices. It’s also a great way to bump up the nutritional content of desserts. The perfect addition to your raw/no-bake desserts – like these Moringa lime chocolate tarts!
