Recipe submitted by Shruthi Bajaj
This drink is inspired by my absolute favorite drink at KAFE, a hip and healthy restaurant in the beautiful Ubud, Bali. A refreshing combination of mangoes, raspberries, and coconut, this drink rejuvenates and re-hydrates from the inside.
I have chosen coconut milk for 2 reasons: 1) it is cooling and calming (and hence decreases Pitta!), and 2) it doesn’t violate any of the Ayurvedic food combination rules. If you prefer less viscous smoothies, simply substitute the coconut milk for coconut water.
Enjoy this drink on an empty stomach and at least a half hour before a snack or meal.
2 cups fresh sliced mango
1 cup fresh raspberries
1-1.5 cup lite coconut milk
1-2 Tbsp agave nectar or brown rice syrup – adjust to taste
1/2 tsp rose water – cooling and anti-inflammatory!
Water – adjust to desired consistency
Add everything to a blender. Blend until creamy. Drink at once!
