They have different nutritional properties, but they work together like a champ. Meet your coconut moringa matcha latte!
Matcha and moringa look a little alike, but you’ll find matcha to be a more vibrant green (seen above in the jar on the left), whereas moringa is a little less bright and a little more yellow. While it isn’t from a tea leaf at all, the taste of moringa has a lot of the bitter qualities you find in a green tea. This is why they compliment one another so well. Unlike matcha, moringa isn’t necessarily great tasting when only mixed with water, though I have a feeling the Hulk would like it.
We know matcha is really packed with antioxidants. It so happens that moringa is, too! When you blend these two super-herbs together, you’re sure stop that oxidation process right in its tracks. I kid. Joking aside, the nutritional profile of moringa is other worldly. It’s not only antioxidants, but it also has all of the essential amino acids needed to make a complete protein along with numerous vitamins and minerals.
