1 cup of milk (option of raw whole, almond, rice or coconut milk)
1/2- 1 cup of water (If you use regular milk)
10 raw almonds
Pinch of cardamom, nutmeg, saffron (optional)
1 tbs. of raisins (optional)
Slice or two of ginger or 1/8tsp. of ginger powder (vata/kapha only)
1 tsp. of ghee or coconut oil (optional but not necessary)
1 tsp. of raw honey
You can add raisins but note that the sweetness will increase.
You can add 1 tsp. of chyawanprash
You can add 1 tsp. of Ashwagandha powder and 1 tsp. of Shatavari powder
You can add 1 tsp. of Turmeric powder
Note- that you wouldn’t really add all these herbs together but you can alternate the recipe by using one herb at a time, except with the ashwagandha and shatavari where they can be used together. You don’t want to overwhelm digestion by bombarding the milk decoction.
Bring all ingredients to a simmer for 10-15mins. Then, add to blender and puree. Finally, add honey. Stir and drink. Enjoy!
