This Ayurvedic Ojas Rasayana is a delicious drink easy to do at home. It can help ensure a deep and restorative sleep. The recipe makes about two servings and can be diluted with water if it is too thick for your liking.

  • 10 almonds, soaked for 8 hours
  • 1 cup whole milk (dairy, almond or rice)
  • 2 tsp ghee
  • 4-5 dates, preferably Medjool
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp of cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • A pinch of cumin
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • A pinch of nutmeg

Liquefy all the ingredients in a blender until it reaches a smooth consistency then pour into a pot on the stove on medium heat and bring it to a very gentle boil. Stir and serve.

If you haven't pre-soaked the almonds, you can simply blanch them in boiling water for 1 min. Drain and run them under cold water, then remove and discard their skins.

For a delicious dessert, stir in 1 cup of natural yogurt after removing mixture from heat, spoon into small bowls and drizzle maple syrup over each serving.
