“Enjoy this cooling and easy to make drink that will balance the fire in your body (Pitta).”
One of the joys of summer is to prepare cooling drinks from the garden. I don’t have a lemon tree, however, I do enjoy a fresh mint from the garden. This drink is cooling and fortifying, excellent for Pitta dosha.
- 1-1 ½ limes (depending on how tangy you like your beverages)
- 2 cups spring water
- 5 tsp fresh mint minced and ground
- 4 tbsp organic maple syrup or jaggery syrup.
- ½ tsp minced/ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground chia seeds.
- 1/2 tsp rose water.
Juice the limes and mix all of the ingredients together. Let the mint steep into the cooler for approximately 20 minutes. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
