Giving your mom a break from cooking and doing the dishes by treating her to a fabulous meal is a thoughtful and meaningful way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Moringa is great for women because it’s nutrient-packed with iron, calcium, and antioxidants. Studies have linked moringa to reducing stress, increasing lactation, and decreasing chances of cancer. Keeping her healthy by sneaking a little moringa into her Mother’s Day breakfast is a win-win.

If someone says brunch, automatically thoughts of warm, oozing poached eggs and crispy waffles fill the brain. Brew mom up a cup of her favorite coffee and set that pot of water to boil. It’s time to give new meaning to green eggs. They’re totally Instagram-worthy as well – #greenisthenewbrunch.

HEALTHY MOTHER’S DAY MORINGA HOLLANDAISE

If your mom loves getting Eggs Benedict for brunch, she’ll love these green (hollandaise) eggs for Mother’s Day. You don’t need to be a master chef to be able to figure out making the perfect hollandaise sauce. Follow these simple, easy steps.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 4 oz Butter or Ghee
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice or Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Pure Vegetable Moringa Powder
  • Salt & black pepper (to taste)
  • Paprika (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  • Place egg yolks in a double-boiler pot (or use a bowl on top of a pot with gently simmering water). Add lemon juice and whisk.
  • Add butter slowly, whisking as you go.
  • Once all butter is added and sauce is at desired consistency (should be runny, but stick to a spoon if stuck in), add moringa powder and whisk well.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and paprika (if desired).
  • Serve over poached eggs on toast with tomatoes, sautéed spinach, bacon, ham or avocado slices.
