Sorry I haven’t been writing as much. I have been busy looking for a part time job and hanging with friends. I am going to try my best to test some more recipes and write more often in the weeks to come.
Coconut Flour Donuts
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease donut or muffin pan. In a large bowl whisk the oil, sugar, salt vanilla extract and eggs. Once the ingredients are mixed add the milk and mix well. In a small mix the flour and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Pour the mixture into the donut or muffin pan, 3/4ths the way full. Bake for 10-15 minutes in the donut pan, or until it is golden brown around the edges. 18-20 minutes in the muffin pan.
Today I made Moringa Cashew Dressing. It is a great alternative to processed salad dressing that you can purchase in store and you probably have many of the ingredients already in your pantry. This dressing is creamy and healthy! Not only does it have many health benefits like, anti -aging and immune boosting, but also it tastes great and brings color to your table.
This recipe is a similar to Nutrition Stripped‘s turmeric dressing recipe.
Moringa Cashew Dressing
1/2 cup cashew butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Me Moringa Powder
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoon water (you can add more or less depending on the consistency you want)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
This recipe is very easy and you can use a variety of vegetables! I used beets, potatoes and sweet potatoes.
5 potatoes or vegetable of choice
2 tbsp olive oil (or oil of choice)
1 tbsp salt
Seasoning of choice
Slice vegetables thin and place in a bowl and add oil, salt and seasoning of choice. I used garlic powder and pepper. Place in air fryer and cook for 20 minutes or until they are hard like chips. Make sure to shake the basket every 5-10 minutes. Take them out of air fryer and toss with salt and seasoning.
Air frying is my new favorite way to cook! here is a low fat fry recipe to cure your craving on fry-day.
Air Fried Fries
5 Russet Potatoes
2 tbsp oil of choice
2 tsp of salt
2 tsp ME Moringa moringa and Province Herb Blend
Scrub potatoes and pat dry. Slice into strips and put in a bowl. Add the oil and salt and mix until the potatoes are evenly coated. Put in air frier for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Shake occasionally to make sure they are evenly fried. Once the 40 minutes is up, sprinkle the moringa seasoning on the fries.

I apologize for being MIA, but I was extremely busy with school. I just finished my last class yesterday and I am thrilled! It is bittersweet though, I will miss going to class and learning, but I am grateful to be done with homework for good.
I started my day off with a Moringa Latte. Moringa gives you a boost of energy while providing Vitamin C and antioxidants. The latte has an earthy taste, like most products that contain moringa, but the natural boost of energy is worth it!
1 tsp Me Moringa powder
1 tbsp hot water
2 tsp monk fruit sugar (or any kind of sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp vital collagen powder
1 cup skim milk
In a cup, mix the water and moringa powder until it forms a paste. In a sauce pan add the milk, sugar, vanilla and collagen. Bring the milk to a simmer and whisk until frothy. Add the milk mixture to the moringa paste! Enjoy!
