Restorative Almond Drink Recipe

Restorative Almond Drink Recipe


  • 8 raw almonds
  • 1 cup pure water
  • 3/4 cup soy milk or fresh raw cow's milk
  • 1 tablespoon rose petals
  • a couple threads of saffron
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon raw honey


Soak almonds in water overnight.

In the morning, reserve half the water and drain off the rest. Rub the skins off the almonds.

In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Pour the milk in the blender with the almonds, the half cup of water, and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.


This variation on a traditional rasayana grounds vata, soothes irritated pitta, and tonifies the nerves.
