Ojas Formula


Ojas is our super-fine essence. This recipe is great when we’re feeling depleted and our internal organs need nourishment. Enjoy this delicious, building drink without food.

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 10 minutes (and soaking overnight)

6 to 8 Dates

8 to 9 Almonds

¼ tsp. Poppy Seeds

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ginger

1/8 tsp. cardamom

1 cup of milk

Soak the dates and almonds overnight in filtered water. Peal the skins off of both (the skins are astringent, so therefore a bit drying and not as nourishing as the dates and almonds themselves). Add the dates, almonds and poppy seeds to a blender with a bit of milk. Blend until smooth. Add to the rest of the milk and heat on the stove to boiling. Boil for 5 minutes. Let it cool slightly, and enjoy!
