    I don’t have air conditioning in my apartment, and I’ve been craving something cool before I go to bed these past couple weeks and have come up with my own version of ojas ice cream: 1 sliced frozen banana, young coconut flesh, 1/4 avocado, a bit of vanilla, dash of cinnamon and a spoonful of Ojas tonic. Blend together and top with raw cocoa nibs, chopped dried figs or whatever your heart desires…so good!

    I am so excited to share the recipe for Ojas fudge. This is a recipe conceived based on ingredients in the OJAS tonic and so the amount of sugar can be adjusted . This recipe brings me warm memories of my childhood days eating a semi-warm dessert made by my mom. It is an easy and a healthy alternative for those with sweet tooth like me after dinner.

    Ojas Fudge:

    Ingredients:
    1/2 cup Ojas
    1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
    1 table spoon ghee
    almond milk or regular milk (to dissolve the Ojas and sugar).

    Mix Ojas, palm sugar with milk (or almond milk) to get batter consistency. Heat Ghee in a pan on low flame and add the ojas mixture and stir for about 15 minutes (time may vary on gas versus electric). Once the mixture thickens and the ghee floats on the top the fudge is ready. Spread on a greased plate and cut the fudge into small square serving pieces and serve semi-warmed or chilled.

    I’m in Chile now and love experimenting with some of the foods that are more common here than in Colorado. And I am most enamored now with the cherimoya. It’s a deliciously sweet and creamy subtropical fruit that looks a little like a cross between an apple and a lizard. It’s thought to be native to the Andes (high in vitamins C and B-6) at semi-high altitudes: It doesn’t like snow, but likes to see snow! And because July is winter down here, I like to add boiled spring water to a couple of spoons of cooked whole oats, mix in some whole cherimoya, and sprinkle with Ojas. Yum!

    Ojas candy: puree an equal amount of dates and almonds in a food processor so that a dough forms. Sprinkle in ojas and mix in with your hands. Either press into a small pan, chill, and cut into small squares or make small balls and roll in fine coconut. Divide the number of servings you made by the servings of ojas you included to get the “dose”. enjoy!

  • Laura Saffioti

    I love the chai-like flavor of Ojas and it works great in a yogurt parfait:
    Use your favorite yogurt (I like plain goat’s milk)
    in a glass layer yogurt, then sprinkle Ojas, and then fresh fruit (especially good with berries or peaches). Top with more yogurt and a generous sprinkling of Ojas. Feel free to experiment with whatever you have on hand: strawberry-rhubarb compote, maple syrup and almonds, pistachios and rose water.
    This makes a great breakfast or dinner on those 100 degree days.

    Here is another recipe that I have used when I don’t have time for preparing a recipe.

    I just mix 2 T. of natural, organic peanut butter with 2 T. of raw organic honey. I mix the two together and then mix in Ojas tonic. Oh-so-good as a dessert!

  • connieknudson

    My first recipe disappeared, so I will enter it again (I only submitted one other.)
    This is for Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding
    It is knock-off-your socks delicious!
    1/2 C. pitted dates, soaked for 30 min.
    1 ripe avocado
    2 T. raw or roasted carob powder
    1 T. raw cacao powder
    1 T. raw local honey
    dash of sea salt
    1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla (optional)

    Drain the dates and set aside the soak water. Place dates and remaining ingredients in the blender. Add just enough water for it to blend smoothly. Blend until you get a smooth consistency, and no green avocado color is left. Chill for about an hour before serving. When you’re ready to serve, add 1 tsp. Ojas tonic and mix it in, or simply top your serving of pudding with yummy Ojas! Dip in your spoon and experience the most lucsious chocolate pudding ever!

    Ojas Veggie Cream

    This recipe works well as a side dish or a standalone breakfast (in this case increase the portion size by 50% or 100%).
    You will need the following ingredients (per person):

    1 cup of tightly packed peeled and cubed sweet potatoes
    2-3 Tbs soft leafy greens (baby greens, spinach, etc)
    1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro leaves
    1 Tbs dry roasted coconut flakes
    1 tsp water with 1/8 tsp Himalaya salt dissolved in it
    1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1/4 tsp fresh lemon zest, finely grated (only the yellow part)
    1 tsp raw cococnut oil or ghee
    2 tsp raisins
    1/2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
    1 tsp Ojas Nightly Tonic mix

    Instructions:

    1. Steam the sweet potatoes for about 10 min, until soft.
    2. While the potatoes are steaming, dry roast the coconut flakes, chop the ginger, and make lemon juice and lemon zest.
    3. In a medium size skillet gently warm up the oil or ghee and add the ginger. When ginger is golden yellow, add raisins and stir until they puff up. Add Ojas mixture, stir two more times and add the chopped baby greens. Let cook for a minute until the greens are cooked. Remove from heat.
    4. Add the steamed sweet potatoes, roasted coconut, fresh cilantro, lemon juice and zest, and salt water.
    5. Mash everything well until creamy looking.
    6. Serve warm and enjoy!
