Power Drink Recipe

Serves 1.

The Power drink was first introduced to me by Dr. Kamlesh, reputed Ayurvedic Physician , who, for the past few years, has been teaching in Sivananda Centres and Ashrams the basic principles of Ayurveda (particularly of a balanced diet) for good health.

This very nutritious drink is a real tonic . Dr. Kamlesh recommends taking it as a breakfast. The almonds are said to be excellent for the brain. The dry fruits with provide you with plenty of energy to go through the morning. Soaking retains all their qualities while making them easily digestible.


5 almonds

1 big dry fig

1 or 2 dates; a few nuts (e.g. cashew or pistachios)

a few filaments of Saffron

a few drops of rose water


The night before, soak the almonds in one bowl and the rest of the ingredients separately.In the morning peel the almonds – this will be made easier after the overnight soaking. Take off the pit from the dates and mix all the ingredients in the mixer, adding the saffron, the soaking water and extra water if needed to adjust the consistency (it should remain quite thick). Add a few drops of rose water before serving.
