Here's a delicious Ayurvedic nervine tonic recipe from Savitri, a student at Alandi Ayurveda Gurukula who hails from Mexico. After learning about soma, the Vedic nervine beverage, Savitri was reminded of Horchata, a traditional Mexican drink, and created a special recipe that fuses Ayurvedic wisdom with Mexican tradition. This recipe is rich in tyrosine, B vitamins, copper, magnesium and zinc to support brain function.

1 cup of basmati rice

6 cups of water

1 can of organic coconut milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1/8 tsp. cardamon
