LITHE THANDAI LASSI (REPOST) 22 Jun 2016

3

I'm on a nine-day challenge, which means my diet is ultra clean and I'm kicking up the intensity in-studio and taking my workout outside for an extra hour a day. I've been testing our Lithe Spice and came up with a fantastic breakfast lassi that also moonlights as a dessert. 

Indian thandai, literally translated as "something that cools," is a sweet, creamy milk drink flavored with nuts and mixed with rose petals, poppy seeds, and spices such as cardamom and fennel. On Holi, the Indian festival of colors, the refreshment is served with bhang (a derivative of marijuana). Here we've gone dairy, bhang, AND alcohol-free and used our Lithe Spice, which accentuates the nutty, floral flavors of the lassi.  

Ingredients: 1 cup coconut water, 1/2 can coconut milk, 1 large handful of cashews and 2-3 tablespoons Lithe Spice (sub in a pinch of cardamom, pinch of sea salt, fennel, poppy seeds, and edible rose petals or rose water).

To Do: Mix everything in high-speed blender until smooth.

DAILY DETOX SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE {DAY 1} 17 Mar 2015

Goji+Rose

Are you detoxing with us? Have you tried your Lithe Foods Day 1 Rose + Goji Superfood Smoothie? I make this smoothie regularly and I'm so happy that we were able to include it in our detox plan. Rose and goji berries create a powerful balancing elixir for the heart that has the potential to open you to the vibe of happiness and love. Enjoy and read up on the benefits.

Rose is considered a heart tonic in the ancient system of Ayurveda. It soothes the heart and emotions and bestows balance. Rose also has a beautifying effect, soothing inflammation of the skin and increasing its glow. When buying rose water for culinary use, make sure that it's high quality and preferably organic. Most roses are heavily sprayed with pesticides. 

Goji berries belong to a class of Chinese herbs that are known as “superior tonics.” This means that they can be taken regularly over long periods of time to preserve health and youthfulness. Goji is known as the “happy berry” and reportedly gives a sense of well-being and calm. Goji’s list of benefits are astounding. Heart health and beautiful, radiant skin are among them. Goji berries are also nutritional power houses that have more iron than spinach, more vitamin C than oranges, and more beta carotene than carrots. They contain a host of trace minerals, B vitamins, and antioxidants. And they are a complete protein (yes!).
