Thank you to the Ayurvedic Center of Vermont for this lovely rasayana recipe. It aids in digestion, helps to calm the nervous system, decrease inflammation and joint pain - all aids to a better sleep - and it is delicious!
1 cup whole organic cow’s milk or nut milk of choice (I prefer coconut-almond milk unsweetened)
(optional to cut the cow’s milk with using ½ cup milk and ½ cup of water)
1 tsp turmeric
½–1 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp cardamom
1 tsp coconut oil or ghee
Pinch of black pepper (black pepper enhances absorption of turmeric)
½–1 tsp raw honey
Pinch of cinnamon
In a small saucepan, warm and whisk the milk uncovered over medium-high heat for 3–4 minutes or until you see steam rising out of the pan. Add all the other ingredients. Pour into your favorite mug, sweeten with honey (if using), and top with cinnamon if you like. Adjust all spices according to taste.
May you and your family be safe and healthy.
