Happy 2023! It’s a new year full of new possibilities!
Are you feeling inspired? Or maybe you’re still recovering from all the celebrating?
However you’re feeling, we’ve got just the thing to help you start the new year right!
Our Ojas Energy Elixir is the perfect drink for this time of year to help us rebalance our energy after the craziness of the holidays.
In Ayurveda, “ojas” means “vital nectar of life.” Known for balancing the body and increasing vitality, this warm and nourishing tonic is the perfect way to cozy up and reflect on the year ahead.
This elixir is not just grounding – it also has great health benefits. The healthy fats in the coconut milk and oil in this recipe help stabilize blood sugar and boost satiety. The blend of spices has potent antioxidant, antibacterial, mood-boosting, and digestion-fueling properties.
And since our January cleanse is happening right now, this warming beverage also makes a great caffeine-free morning pick-me-up. We know how hard it is for our cleansers to give up coffee, so we’ve developed a variety of tasty substitutes for them to try instead.
If you’re cleansing or you’ve just resolved to give up coffee this January, this Ojas Energy Elixir makes a great stand-in for your morning coffee ritual.
So cheers to you and we look forward to serving you on your path of health and vitality in 2023 and beyond!
All our love,
The Conscious Cleanse Team
Ojas Energy Drink
Yield: 1 serving
- 10 ounces coconut milk (here we used the type in the refrigerator section not in the can)
- 6 ounces filtered water
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 date, pitted
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp organic dried rose petals (make sure they are organic!)
- Pinch of saffron
- 1” knob of ginger, peeled
- Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
In a high speed blender place coconut milk, water, coconut oil, date, cinnamon, rose petals, saffron, ginger, and sea salt. Place a towel over the blender (as a safety measure), and set to high for about 2 minutes, until hot. Alternatively, you can place all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk while bringing to just before the boil. If you choose this method, you may want to strain out the date and the rose petals depending on your preference.
