The Perfect Ayurvedic Smoothie Recipe
I love Ayurvedic principles. One concept of Ayurveda is that there are six tastes: pungent, sour, sweet, salty, bitter and astringent. According to Ayurveda, we should activate each taste during every meal. By activating each taste, we eliminate cravings because we've achieved a perfect balance.
Try hitting all six flavors while juicing and blending smoothies. Here's my Perfect Balance Juice:
- Bitter: 2 cups of kale
- Sour: 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Sweet: 1 banana
- Salty: 1-inch by 3-inch strip of nori, torn into small pieces
- Pungent: 1/8 tsp ginger
- Astringent: 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tsp flax seeds
Blend up the flax seeds first, add the rest of the ingredients to your blender and enjoy!
