Ayurvedic Recipes - Cucumber Cooler

 

Keep your cool this summer with this Ayurveda-approved, nutrient-packed, and tastebud-tantalizing drink! Cucumber calms the Pitta dosha and cools the body, all while hydrating, replenishing vitamins, and aiding in digestion. Coconut water is one of Ayurveda’s top ingredients for cooling, as it contains a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, making it a healthy alternative to an electrolyte drink. Mint pacifies all three doshas – it’s nutrient-rich, boosts immunity, calms the stomach, and aids digestion. It’s also a great palate cleanser! Again, this is another ingredient that reduces the body temperature, making it a treat during the summer months. Combine all these ingredients and you’re sure to beat the heat.
