Super Food Hot Chocolate Recipe

One of my goals for health in the New Year is to find healthy comfort food replacements so that I can enjoy some of the things I love without sabotaging mine and my families’ health. One of my favorite recipes is our Super Food Hot Chocolate which has matcha, moringa, and pure cocoa powder. This is something that you can easily tailor to your own health and taste preferences or for those of your children.

My Interest in Moringa

We were first introduced to moringa through a friend that wanted us to blend moringa into her coffee for a healthy infusion into her morning routine. We later became very close to a neighborhood family who lived in the jungles of Papua, Indonesia for eight years and are working to help their friends from the villages there import coffee and moringa to the US. All five of their kids have worked with us in our coffee and tea. We also have a friend who is working with the ambassador of Tanzania to help the country reach their goals for exporting goods like coffee and moringa from Tanzania. It is my big dream that we could increase our sales to be able to help these good friends import moringa and coffee and to help make an impact in the places of origin. It is for this reason that I am super excited to find some recipes highlighting Moringa.
