Evening tonic for Vatta doshas

Ending the day with a tonic is a great evening ritual. While the routine alone creates a calm setting, you can choose to add ingredients to your tonic based on how you feel and how your day and week have been. This tonic has not only adrenal-hugging ashwagandha, but nutmeg which can support sleep and relaxed muscles, and comfort your agitated mind.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
  • Approximately 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean, ground
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder 
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg, grated
  • ½ teaspoon ashwagandha powder
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

Make homemade cashew milk by adding soaked cashews to a blender with enough filtered water to fill 1 inch above cashews. Blend until smooth. (You will use 8 ounces of the milk in your recipe and any extra will keep for a few days in an airtight jar or bottle in your refrigerator.) Add cashew milk, maple syrup, vanilla bean, cinnamon, nutmeg, ashwagandha, and sea salt to a small pot. Heat on high, removing before it comes to a boil. Stir using a spoon, whisk, or milk frother to be sure everything is combined. Relax and sip away once cool enough to drink.
