Cardamom Rose Water Lassi

As of late, I’ve been deeply inspired by medicinal Chinese & Ayurvedic food and herbs due to getting deeper into my herbal studies.  I was anticipating the arrival of INDIA Cookbook so much yesterday that I think I startled the UPS driver when I met him at the door.  Thumbing through this dreamy cuisine bible, I’ve already dog-eared numerous recipes that I’m inspired to craft (while giving them an even deeper Ayurvedic twist).  I present you with my newest snack/digestive aid obsession:

CARDAMOM ROSE WATER LASSI

1 c purified room temperature water

¼ c raw kefir | whole yogurt | or coconut yogurt

pinch of saffron

pinch of cardamom

¼ tsp Bulgarian Rose Water

1 tsp raw local honey

PROCESS | place all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired texture.  I let my vitamix blend a little longer to bring it to room temperature.

BENEFITS | heart soothing | digestive aid | gut bacteria balancing | immune boosting | diuretic
