While I don’t recall the exact reason for being ‘prescribed’ this breakfast shake, or any other exchange on the day itself, I have never forgotten this recipe from an Ayurvedic doctor I saw at a work event many years ago, and continue to make this delicious treat on a regular basis (when I have a blender on hand).
Its ingredients are simple, and the method could be learned by a monkey, but the best part about this shake it that it’s great for your digestive system, and a glorious way to wake up in the morning.
All you’ll need is…
5 x fennel seeds
3 x dates (pitted)
6 x almonds
1 x cardamom pod
1 x large glass of water
And all you need to do is…
1. Soak all the ingredients in the water overnight and keep in the fridge. When you’re ready for your breakfast shake, simply pour the water and its contents into your blender and push whizzzzz!
2. Now drink!
It should look a little something like this…
Because of the almonds, the shake goes all milky and delicious, and the spices in there create this wonderful chai-like taste, which is very palatable and a zingy way to wake up your tastebuds. Yumyumyum!
Add some cinnamon in there if you like as well, or take it straight up. The choice is entirely yours, Happies.
