Shatavari drink

Shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb, one of the most commonly used in India for women to balance the reproductive tissues and hormones. Used for the mood swings and irritability of PMS, menopausal hot flashes, fertility, supports normal production of breast milk for nursing mothers and to enhance libido. It is an herb of such potency that it is translated as “she who possesses 100 husbands”. Research has focused on its immune stimulating properties, as well as its anti-inflammatory properties.

I personally like to make a warm milk at night to help deepen my sleep and reduce hot flashes.

Here is the tasty recipe:

  • 4 oz. unsweetened almond milk, warmed
  • 1 tsp organic shatavari powder
  • pinch of ginger powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • honey or agave to taste

While the milk is warming, measure your powders and drop them into a mug. Once the milk has warmed, add a small amount to the powders to make them into a paste. Slowly add the rest of the milk, stirring as you go so that the herbs become well blended into the milk. Add the honey or agave as needed.

Here is a recipe for Shatavari Drink that could replace a hot cocoa or chai latte as a beverage;

  • One cup Purified water
  • One cup Organic whole milk or almond milk or goat milk (no Soy milk)
  • One tea spoon Organic Shatavari Powder
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Powder
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • Or ½ tsp Chai Masala

Boil water with Sharavari powder, cardamom powder and cinnamon powder. One could also add Chai Masala (Indian chai spice mix) instead of individual spices. Let the powders steep for 5 minutes. Add milk and let it steep again till the liquid comes to a soft boil. Add raw sugar or honey if needed.
