A simple and delicious ayurvedic beverage for Vata (Autumn) season. It aids digestion, calms the nervous system, supports a healthy anti-inflammatory response and helps you sleep well.
2 cups milk of your choice (cow’s whole milk or plant milk). I like Almond.
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
1/4 tsp. ginger powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg (plus optional pinch more for topping)
twist of black pepper
pinch of sea salt
1 tsp of vanilla
2 to 3 tsp. maple syrup to taste
1- 2 tsp. coconut oil
Place all ingredients except coconut oil in a blender and blend.
Pour into a saucepan and heat to warm. Add coconut oil. Add two to three tsp. of maple syrup, depending on how sweet you like it. Froth with a frother if you’d like extra foaminess. Top with ground nutmeg if you like.
