Oh saudade! Here goes a recipe that really makes me feel homesick! Perfect for the days when you need some immune system support or if you are hanging out with friends who are having not as sattvic drinks while you desire to stick to your sankalpa (intention) of making healthier choices. As Yogananda said, "environment is stronger than willpower". So, we have to design the environment that support our choices!
1/2 cup of golden raisins
juice of 3 limes
1 cup of water or ice cubes
1 piece of fresh ginger peled
Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth (if not using a powerful blender like a Vitamix or Ninja, grate the ginger previously). Filter and serve chilled. It is so delicious!
