Macaroons typically have sweetened condensed milk, however these are a great dairy free alternative from our Moringa Recipe Contest. MoringaRoons with Cashew Moringa Icing are both powered up with Kuli Kuli moringa powder, making them more nutritious than an indulgent dessert. Have these as a satisfying snack or add them to your morning fruit bowl.
