Welcome to kapha season! In Ayurveda, this late winter/early spring season brings with it so much possibility. After a long dormant period, kapha season is a time of rebirth and growth, a time of shedding old habits and emotions. It’s when we begin to lighten up, dry out, warm up, and move, balancing kapha’s earthy qualities: heavy, moist, cool, and dull. This invigorating, pungent, and slightly sweet drink will assist in detoxifying your body and clearing allergies as you transition into the new season.

Serves 2

  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1-inch piece turmeric root, chopped, or 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons raw honey

In a blender, combine the hot water, ginger, turmeric, and lemon juice and blend until the ginger and turmeric are broken down. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into mugs, pressing on the solids to extract all the liquid. Stir half of the honey into each mug. Sip and enjoy throughout the day.
