What do you have as an energy drink after a lovely walk or workout… Some protein powder, I would suggest you to have this healthy smoothie as it has no preservatives and is freshly made with fresh fruits available in the house.
My son is a lover of all types of smoothie and milkshakes. This was also his favorite one. After finishing his regular exercise he craves for this.
Smoothie are made with raw fruits and vegetables with your favorite ice-cream, milk and yoghurt as the base same as milkshake.
There are green smoothie with spinach or kale, point is that you can explore with your smoothie.
Today’s smoothie is with mango and banana, instead of Greek yogurt I have used regular curd here.
To defeat any virus in and around our body one has to keep immunity strong and by meaning strong the instant question arises is how? Here’s presenting 3 easy drinks to boost immunity and keep disease at bay.
What is immunity?
Immunity is the ability of body to protect itself against infection, by making antibodies.
When one’s immunity is weak that person tends to catch cold and cough early or say an disease like viral.
During this time when the world is fighting with covid-19 or corona virus we need to take care of ourselves by sanitizing our hands, staying at home and maintaining social distance. This is the only way to fight back.
Old is gold we all have heard this and today I am talking about Almond milk or Badam doodh.In every Indian household one might have drank this soothing milk to boost your immunity or just to have a change in our regular milk.
Why we need to drink Almond milk/ Badam milk
Simple, it does change the taste as well it is one of the best health drink with power pack nutrition. Instead of adding store packed health drink powder to our milk go for home made version.
It all starts with soaking almonds/ badam for half an hour in warm water
Peeling the skin off and grinding it to a fine taste.You can add a tablespoon of milk while grinding the almond paste.
After the paste is ready, boil milk in a pan,pour the almond/ badam paste in the boiling milk and cook for five minutes or till the raw smell of the badam is gone.
Milk tends to get thicker after adding almond paste.Now to enhance the taste add 1/2 tablespoon elaichi/cardamom powder along with sugar,boil till sugar dissolves
Pour into glass and serve hot in winter’s and chilled in summer’s
A simple, healthy and power pack milk is ready for your growing kids or old one’s
By feeding all this stuff we can keep our loved one’s healthy and strong.Hope you liked the recipe

Kesar has a special place in Ayurveda, This protects from cold, good for the heart. Gives one a good sleep, Good for the skin also.
Very easy and quick to make a drink, let’s see what goes into making Kesar doodh
I have not added cardamom powder here as it overpowers the aroma of Kesar/saffron as this is Kesar doodh so let us keep it simple no need to make it fancy
Haldi doodh is an age old recipe passed on from generations to generations and this recipe never fails you.This is also called as Talfa in my region.Haldi is More of medicinal value and used in Ayurvedic medicines since ages.Drink it in correct quantity and time, will difinetely improve your health issues
What is Haldi doodh or Golden milk
Haldi or turmeric is considered as the golden spice of India.Haldi has being used in ayurvedic medicine from ages.It contains antioxidant properties.Milk as we all know is best in calcium and when haldi is added this makes it a superdrink in any way.So ,when haldi and milk are combined with some more herbs this is called as Haldi dhoodh or Golden milk
Benefits of Haldi Dhoodh:
Haldi reduces swelling in your body
Helps in healing wounds quickly
Helpful in cold and lung infections
Today I am sharing with you a full proof recipe of haldi milk or golden milk,which my mother in law has been making since ages in this family,and whenever our family is down with cold and cough this golden jewel is served every night after dinner.
After drinking this milk you don’t have to drink water till one hour,so it is suggested that you drink haldi doodh after your dinner and before going to bed,if you follow this regularly you will definitely notice the difference.
Not only when you are suffering from cold n cough you can drink haldi doodh,this can be taken on daily basis also for good health.Haldi doodh also boosts immunity.
Why Jaggery is good for health:
For sweetner here you have to add jaggery not sugar.As jaggery is a best sweetner and healthy option.
Jaggery is also called as desi sugar,in rural areas(here I am talking about Uttar pradesh region)
Jaggery is obtained from boiling sugar-cane
cleanse the body toxins,eases digestion system.Prevents from constipation.
Jaggery is loaded with antioxidants and minerals.If you are working in steel plant industry,so it is highly recommendable to have jaggery aka gur to clear all the toxins in your body,my husband does eat a small piece of jaggery every day as he works in a steel plant.
So it is suggested to have jaggery in Haldi doodh rather than sugar,but if you don’t have jaggery gur then go ahead with sugar.
