In Ayurveda there is a concept called Ojas, which is most closely associated in Western terms with immunity or the immune system.  When someone’s energy is dragging, in Ayurveda it is often the case that Ojas is depleted or low.

This drink is a natural energy drink designed to boost vitality at the core level of ojas.  Of course, you need to also do things like have more rest and relaxation in addition to drinking it to truly increase your energy!

It can be made with cow’s milk instead of the almond milk.  If using cow’s milk the ideal is to use raw milk from a local organic dairy, pre-boil it, then use in the recipe.

I also like to make my own almond milk instead of using the store bought cartons.

It is often people with aggravated vata and pitta doshas that are depleted and needing more of these nourishing foods.  While kapha people can enjoy this drink, it should be in small quantities occasionally.

The drink can be used as a light breakfast as well as a snack option.
