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:

Ingredients:

  • 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!
