Rose, Pistachio, Saffron, Cardamom Ice Cream

Surprise! Homemade ice cream can be Ayurvedic! No need to deprive yourself of one of summer's most special treats. Making ice cream the Ayurvedic way should 1) include spices that break up mucous and aid digestion 2) avoid eggs (a bad food combination when mixed with dairy) and 3) avoid refined sugars. But be warned! No matter how you prepare it, ice cream may provoke congestion, sluggish digestion and heavy thick blood in Kapha individuals, so indulge in moderation. Kapha people might try our cherry sorbet instead.
