Aduna Moringa Launch

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to join the Aduna team for the launch of their new product, Moringa. The event was really inspiring and I learnt a lot about the superfood and its benefits. The superfood comes from the leaves of a tree that grows in rural Africa, and the more well known this miracle product becomes, the more it will help communities to develop! We refreshed with superfood cocktails featuring moringa, and feasted on delicious canapés by Naturally Sassy, all using Aduna moringa and baobab powders.

After discovering the benefits of moringa, I was inspired to make some of my own recipes, which I have featured below. Moringa has amazing skin benefits and so I took a morning at the weekend to relax and make a green face mask. My skin felt so refreshed and soft. Whilst my face mask got to work, I drank a refreshing green ‘skin’ smoothie!
