Dad On The Move is a family travel & lifestyle daddy blog in the Philippines; a collection of travel stories, food reviews, & parenting adventures.

Last year, Moringa-O2 organized a Fambassador Fam Day as a simple get-together party for its partner bloggers and social media influencers. It was a fun-filled event where there were a lot of stories shared as well as prizes given away. One thing that I loved during the event though was the segment where Moringa-O2 invited a bartender and taught us how to make delicious malunggay drinks.

How To Make Delicious Malunggay Drinks

    You might be asking, “What, malunggay in my drinks?” But trust me, they were delicious plus also nutritious. That's why I’m sharing two recipes with you. Again, these are original recipes from Moringa-O2.

    The health benefits of malunggay or Moringa oleifera

    I’m sure you’ve been hearing over and over again the health wonders of malunggay (Moringa oleifera) practically everywhere. Just the same, one can never overemphasize the importance of adding it to one’s diet.

    For us Filipinos, consuming malunggay is a time-tested solution to increase breast milk in mothers. Malunggay is also rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C. It’s also a great source of protein, especially for those who are following a vegan or vegetarian diet.

    Malunggay also works great in helping manage cholesterol levels, keeping excess body weight off, and in improving circulation. If you love malunggay pods (fruit), then you are lucky because it contains cancer-fighting properties.

    These are good enough reasons to add copious amounts of malunggay to soups, ginataan (coconut milk-based) dishes, and pinakbet.

    Aside from the above benefits to the body, malunggay extract can also help keep the hair and scalp healthy, that’s why Moringa-O2 shampoo and conditioners work well in managing hair fall to prevent eventual hair loss.

    When I made these malunggay drinks, I was surprised with how good they tasted. I’m sure you’ll realize it, too, when you get to try it for yourself. 

    Malunggay drinks ingredients

    Anyway, here are two recipes for Iced Coffee with Malunggay Milk Cap and Malunggay Highball.

    Iced Coffee with Malunggay Milk Cap

    To make the Iced Coffee with Malunggay Milk Cap, you will need the following ingredients:

    • 20 ml of Monin Vanilla syrup
    • 60 ml of coffee concentrate
    • 120 ml of Alaska fresh milk

    • Ice


    1. Make the coffee base concentrate by dissolving 2g of instant coffee in 60 ml of warm water.
    2. Make the malunggay milk cap by dissolving Kievet milk into fresh milk and adding a pinch of malunggay powder.
    3. Build all the ingredients in a tall glass with ice.
    4. Top with a malunggay milk cap and enjoy

    Malunggay Highball

    For this refreshing drink, you need to prepare the following:


    1. Make the malunggay tea by steeping one bag of malunggay tea in 180 ml of hot water for 3 minutes.
    2. Build all ingredients in a tall glass with ice.
    3. Stir and garnish with dehydrated lemon.
    4. Top with a malunggay milk cap and enjoy.


    We love to add malunggay leaves and pods to our everyday vegetable dishes. However, I never knew that you can also enjoy malunggay in drinks.

    These malunggay drinks are another great way to take advantage of the health-giving properties of malunggay. They are easy to make and are definitely delicious.
