In the biting frost of the Canadian winter, I make a ritual of enjoying, every day, this warming Winter Tonic both in the mornings and evenings before bed. This blend of only 2 every day ingredients + 2 of our own RASA Ayurveda apothecary products, offers this body and mind a sense of deep calm, safety, predictability, comfort, and rootedness.
From first to last sip, it feels as if I'm receiving a hug from my most beloved. In the mornings, this blend is both tender but also enlivening, enouraging me forward despite the frigid temperatures that I know await me outside, and after dusk, this drink coaxes the mind towards quietude, as if someone has tucked me in under a heated and weighted blanket.
The star performers in this favourite Winter Tonic are none other than our Golden Mylk and our Adapt-to-Life Potion. They are what you could call a 'Power Couple.'
The Golden Mylk offers the anti-inflammatory power of organic Turmeric, as well as immune-boosting benefits thanks to its combination of spices which stoke Agni and boost metabolism. The Adapt-to-Life Potion is truly, an anti-dote to stress, packed with adaptogenic herbs that allow you to meet the challenges of this Life from a place of deeper neutrality and stability.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 1)
1 cup Oat Milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1 tsp Golden Mylk
1-2 tsp Adapt-to-Life Potion (or substitute Nighty Night Potion in the evening if insomnia is an issue)
Organic Honey or Maple Syrup to taste
Heat the Oat Milk in a saucepan on low-medium. Whisk in Golden Mylk & Adapt-to-Life Potion until well mixed. Remove from heat. Once the liquid has cooled down slightly, add in honey and stir. Be sure not to add the honey when the milk is hot or boiling, as Ayurveda considers honey toxic if subjected to high temperatures.
You can purchase both Golden Mylk and Adapt-to-Life Potion seperately or in a convenient bundle in our Holiday Gift Box: Full Kit!
