Sesame-Ginger Milk: A Restorative Drink for Men

"Food is the medicine which creates essential energy in the body and creates essential rest in the body to bring equilibrium. That is the beauty of food. All food was considered as human medicine to begin with." -Yogi Bhajan

Out of his Ayurvedic roots, Yogi Bhajan gave us many healing diets and recipes. This creamy and stimulating drink is nourishing to the nervous system and the male sexual organs. Drink it immediately after having intercourse.

12 ounces of milk

2 Tablespoons (or 1-3 inches) of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped

1/4 cup of ground sesame seeds

2 teaspoons of maple syrup or honey

Blend until frothy in a food processor or blender. To serve warm, add a tablespoon of ghee, heat gently, and enjoy. A simpler version is to put a tablespoon of raw sesame oil (not toasted!) in some warm milk and enjoy.
