Italian Fruit Salad

Stealing from the Italians, who have all the time recognized the tasteful style of nature, this salad combines the juicy tart of the season’s brightest berries, croutons, and basil leaves for brilliant flavor. Raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries—even pomegranate—work perfectly here. You can additionally make use of peaches, plums, apricots—play with what’s available.

Good for pitta dosha.
For Vata, heat the fruit and bread with a spoonful of ghee in a small pan before serving. Add a touch of cinnamon to the dressing.
For Kapha, use a cup of bread, and toss with a quarter teaspoon of fresh or dried oregano.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Serves: 2 Persons


  • 1 cup croutons/pieces of soft bread
  • 2 cups of fresh berries
  • 1 cup of ripe peach in pieces
  • 6 to 8 mint leaves
  • 3 to 4 basil leaves
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 t white wine vinegar
  • 1 t lemon juice
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper for seasoning
  • 1 cup Arugula


  1. Place the bread, berries, and peaches with their juices in a standard mixing bowl and stir together to combine.
  2. Softly mix the mint and basil leaves in with the bread and fruit.
  3. In a small container, whip all together with the orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, and olive oil. Drip the salad dressing on top of the salad and softly mix to combine. Flavor with salt and pepper.
  4. Cover the mixing bowl with a dish and stand for 1 hour for the bread to absorb the salad dressing and fruit juices.
  5. Serve cold

Serving suggestions

If the bread looks dry, gently add up a little more orange juice, just as much as necessary to moisten the bread, but not excessively, or it will become soggy.

Vegan Mango Jam

The specialty of this Jam is the use of Psyllium husk instead of gelatine. Psyllium husk is an excellent source of Psyllium fiber, and it is one of the famous dietary fiber supplements. The use of the Psyllium husk makes this jam as clean and comfortable as an early summer morning. Spread on toast, ladle into brunch bowls, whisk into smoothies, or make use of it to decorate desserts.

Good for Pitta Dosha
For Vata, stir up into Nutty Oatmeal or a hot bowl of grains.
For Kapha, use lighter grains like quinoa or amaranth to sweeten.

Total Time: 5 Minutes
Serves: 1 person (1 cup)



  1. Put the mango cubes, psyllium husk, lemon juice, and salt in a mixer and pulse just sufficient for a chunky texture.

Store the jam in an airtight bottle in the fridge for up to 1 week, but it is best enjoyed at room temperature.

Vegan Hot chocolate

This guilt-free hot Chocolate is one of the tastiest healthy drink options out there. Many obviously liked Chocolate for its taste, but cocoa helps nourish our brain, heart, nerves, and bones. Therefore, it can fend off many diseases. Ironically, Ayurveda advises that Chocolate can exacerbate Vata and Pitta due to its bitter taste, but adding coconut milk and maple syrup to the recipe lessens those tastes and provides a balancing sweetness for holidays and relaxing nights by the fire that calls for a special treat.

Good for Vata, Pitta.
In Winter, replace the cardamom with cinnamon

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Total Time: 15 Minutes
Serves: 2 Persons(2 Cups)


  • 1 cup thick Homemade Coconut milk
  • 1 cup thin Homemade Coconut Milk
  • 3 t cocoa powder or unsweetened chocolate powder
  • 1 T of maple syrup
  • ¼ t of ground cardamom
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg


  1. Mix both the coconut milk and let it come to a simmer in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the chocolate powder, maple syrup, cardamom, and nutmeg.
  3. Add water if the mixture is too thick.
  4. Pour down into mugs and serve hot.


Ayurveda considers therapeutic elements are made more bioavailable when blended with healthy fat and brought with the sweet taste, making this a great vehicle for therapeutic herbs and spices. Add one tsp of turmeric, ginger, triphala, ashwagandha, or any grounded herbs you are presently recommended, as the coconut milk is simmering.
