If you’re searching for recipes for noni, you’re probably aware that the terms ‘delicious’ and ‘noni’ rarely appear together. This isn’t to say, of course, that you can’t get used to the taste of noni — many people do. But until you get to that point, why not take advantage of these creative methods which get you all the benefits of noni, in tasty and healthy ways?
Recipe for Noni #1: The Turbo-Charged Fruit Shake
Making a fruit shake is an easy and efficient way of taking your daily dose of noni. Try mixing 1-2 oz. of noni juice with other fruits such as mango, papaya, kiwi, apple, avocado, grapes or really, any other fruit that strikes your fancy. If you like protein powder packets in your shakes, you can add that too, to give your shake a thicker consistency and an additional punch. Throw it all in a blender, add some ice cubes, and Voila! You’ve made a great-tasting shake which will help your body feel revitalized and strong throughout the day.
Recipe for Noni #2: The Oh-So-Tasty Salad Dressing
Another creative way to make noni taste delicious is to make it into a salad dressing. To do this, you’ll need to make or buy a noni elixir which is made with either apple cider vinegar or Balsamic vinegar. Use olive oil as a base and add flavorful ingredients such as garlic and lemon or papaya, ginger and sesame seed to make a delicious and healthy dressing for your daily greens. The nice thing about this recipe is that the prep time is short (it’s really a matter of just shaking up the ingredients you want, with the noni and oil) and the batch of dressing you make will last about a week in the refrigerator (the flavors will get stronger over time.)
Recipe for Noni #3: The Tiny Tincture or the Tremendous Tonic
Last but not least, making a noni tincture or noni tonic opens up worlds of flavoring possibilities. Making both tinctures and tonics is simply a matter of chopping up your noni fruit, covering it with vodka (or apple cider vinegar, for a non-alcoholic version) and letting it ferment in a sealed glass jar for 4-6 weeks. While taking droppers full of a straight noni tincture (which is just the fruit and vodka) doesn’t provide a massive improvement in flavor, adding other ingredients to make it into a noni tonic does. Delicious options include: cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cloves, and even dried fruits, such as apricots. A serious benefit of this noni recipe is the long shelf life gained by allowing the fruit to ferment. Try experimenting with different mixtures to find the noni tonic that most pleases your taste buds.
