It can be taken in the morning as an energizer, or at night for restful sleep.

Ingredients:

1 cup organic milk (if you don’t drink milk, substitute non dairy milk or water)

2 pitted dates (dried or fresh, and soaked if possible)

8-12 almonds (peeled and soaked overnight in warm and fresh water if possible)

1 pinch of at least one of the following spices: cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, or saffron (cinnamon good in the morning; cardamom and nutmeg at night for restful sleep. You can also pick spices based on your constitution if you are familiar.

1 Tsp Unsweetened Coconut flakes (optional)

1-2 Tsp Ghee (optional)

Ojas building herbs such as Shatavari or Ashwaganda (optional – only if you have some from an Ayurvedic practitioner who knows your constitution)

To make:

Place spices, herbs, coconut, and ghee (if using optional ingredients) and milk in a saucepan and bring slowly to a boil. (If you did not soak almonds and dates, also add them in saucepan, if soaked, keep them aside for later). After the milk and ingredients have come to a slow boil, remove from heat, add soaked almonds and dates if you did not already add them, and blend all ingredients together in blender or food processor.

Optional – after blended, add 1 tsp of raw honey for additional sweetness, but do not add honey over flame as it can become toxic – only add after mix has already been heated.

Pour into cup, give thanks, and enjoy the naturally sweet taste, as well as the immediate nourishing effects of this ojas drink.
