In a small saucepan, lightly heat the milk until warm, not boiling. Transfer to a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Pulse until combined. Pour into a mug and sip slowly an hour or two before bed.โฃ


Note: If you do not have a blender, keep the milk in the pot and whisk in the ghee, herbs and spices. To sweeten, use one teaspoon of maple syrup or coconut sugar instead of the dates.โฃ


The combination of soaked almonds, ghee, sweet dates and raw honey are considered to be rasayanas โ€“ foods that nourish and build vitality. Rasa can be translated to โ€œjuiceโ€ or โ€œessenceโ€, and Ayana as โ€œpathโ€ โ€“ so rasayanas are literally a pathway to juiciness. โฃ


This juicy vitality is also known as Ojas, the subtle essence that provides our bodies with strength and immunity. Many things deplete Ojas in our life, including stress, poor diet, irregular routine, to name a few. โฃ


Many nourishing activities help to restore this loss of vitality in our lives, including establishing healthy daily routines, incorporating wholesome foods (like fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts/seeds, and healthy fats like ghee), meditation and mindful movement. โฃ


Special herbs are also considered rasayanas โ€“ including Ashwagandha, Brahmi, Shatavari, Shilajit, Licorice and Saffron, which are more effective at penetrating the tissues when paired with sweet and a bit of fat.โฃ


This recipe uses Ashwagandha, a unique adaptogenic herb that enables the body to reserve and sustain vital energy throughout the day while aiding restful sleep at night. Again, this herb is optional to add to your tonic; worth giving a shot but not required if you canโ€™t get access to it easily. โฃ
