Almond Fig Smoothie Recipe

As we know, Ayurveda favours warm drinks for digestion and frowns upon mixing dairy and fruits but some smoothie tonics can't be beat! Indulge in the creamy, fruity smoothie to restore energy after a workout or as a fibre-filled breakfast drink. 

This recipe features two fantastic ingredients:

1) ALMONDS: In Ayurveda, almonds are applauded for their ability to nourish, build strength, and help to calm excess vata, or a sometimes-anxious energy.
2) FIGS: Figs are a natural way to restore sattvic energy and promote digestion.
