FRESH DALANDAN with Pure Malunggay Leaf Powder Drink

The Moringa Kitchen

I wish the Dalandan is in season all year. This is our local citrus, sweet, and refreshing. It's also called "cahel", after the Spanish word naranja. They are sweeter and of bigger size than the calamansi, or the dalanghita.

Many years ago there was a stall at a farmer's market in Bicutan, where I used to get a basketful every time. You can't really find it at the supermarkets. It's really nice to have the local citrus fruits instead of the imported ones. And definitely much better than all the fake juices sold out there, masquerading as deliciousness in flavoring and sugar called diabetes. Oops.

Here's a nice combination of real Dalandan juice and Pure Malunggay Leaf Powder, a true nourishing and refreshing drink, with no sugar!

Easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 to 1 shot glass of pure Dalandan juice
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/4 tsp pure malunggay leaf powder

To make:

  • Mix the dalandan juice and water in a glass.
  • Stir in the malunggay powder vigorously.
  • Drink up.
  • You can also serve it iced.

Enjoy!

Apples & Peach Fruit Bowl with Fresh Moringa Leaves

The Moringa Kitchen

 

I posted this photo years ago and a friend asked what or which restaurant it was served. I said everything was from home.

I thought...hey that was a nice compliment that my set up looked like it's from a quaint restaurant, then I burst my bubble when I realized that maybe the friend thought I can't make these things. Ha!

We do enjoy making homemade food and I shoot a lot at home. The light here is very nice in the mornings.

This bowl is a "no-recipe" medley of fruits, and whatever was available at home to make a good mix.

Ingredients:

  • Thin slices of apples and pears
  • Sprinkles of Flax, Sliced almonds, Sprinkles of Fresh Malunggay leaves
  • Honey or Vinaigrette

Make:

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add a drizzle of honey or your favorite vinaigrette

That's all.

Plus morning sunshine,  pretty plates and spoon!
