Kripalu Recipe: Agni Nectar

Kripalu School of Ayurveda

Agni is your digestive fire, which needs to be well tended in order to support proper digestion, efficient assimilation, and optimal health. This ambrosial tonic serves as a mini flame thrower for the agni. About 20 minutes before eating a big meal, down a shot of agni nectar, and you'll digest with more ease and grace.

½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
½ cup raw honey
½ cup freshly chopped ginger
¼ cup water

Mix the lemon juice and honey together in a Mason jar or a small bowl with a lid. In a blender or food processor, pulse ginger and water into a fine pulp. Strain ginger/water mixture through a fine mesh strainer into the honey and lemon mixture. Mix well. Store in the refrigerator, and take 1 ounce before meals as a digestive aid.
