Recipe: Ayurvedic Summer Drink – Coconut water based

Feeling super hot, dehydrated, and ready for cellular rehydration? – Then this recipe is for you! Beam yourself internally to a tropical place as you quench your thirst with this Ayurvedic inspired coconut water drink.

“By our own attitude and behavior
we can keep our digestive fire strong.”
(Myra Lewin)

Coconut water is found in young coconuts, and it’s the ideal beverage to replenish electrolytes. The water is especially rich in potassium, magnesium, and manganese, so it will give you a deep sense of thirst relief. Plus, according to eastern medicine, it has a cooling effect on the body. That will not only soothe aggravated Pitta body types, but everyone who feels overheated by the heat during summer.

The ginger and cardamom give this drink a subtle Ayurvedic touch:

  • Ginger is the queen of spices, not only in Ayurveda. Modern science also approves its health benefits: ginger helps release sore throats, kickstarts the digestive system, and reduces nausea – to name just a few!
  • Cardamom has a bunch of medical effects on the body, e.g. it’s known as a digestive aid, relaxes muscle tissues, and balances all three Ayurvedic Doshas or mind-body-types (Vata, Pitta, Kapha).

Ingredients (2 servings)

  • 600 ml coconut water
  • ¼ inch ginger (fresh)
  • 2-3 pinch cardamom
  • ½ lime
  • 1 date

Instructions

  1. Cut and peel lime, wash and grate ginger, pit the date.
  2. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend well.
  3. Serve chilled and enjoy.

Yum – Invigorate yourself on a cellular level!
