Energising Turmeric Milkshake (Dairy-Free!)

This Ayurvedic-friendly recipe is similar to a smoothie, without the incompatible food combining no-no’s (such as milk and fruit / yogurt and fruit to name a few.) which tend to cause Kapha heaviness, slow digestion and toxins in the system.

Not only deliciously refreshing, it also includes many what we call “Ojas incresing foods” in Ayurveda - which is our vitality and immunity increasing whole foods, and is filled with nourishing and grounding oils and fats, plant protein and of course digestive spices for optimal digestion - (A super important part of any good Ayurveda recipe)

One of my favourite things about this deeply nourishing turmeric shake - With all of those highly nourishing ingredients, it can be enjoyed in multiple ways such as a rejuvenating snack, a dessert, a post-workout rejuvenator or just about anytime you need a sweet pick-me-up!

This particular smoothie recipe is best enjoyed no more than 3-4 times each week to avoid increasing Kapha, heaviness, and toxins in the system.
