This cooling and refreshing breakfast drink is great for those days when your digestive fire is a little low, which tends to happen in the summer. However, you will still need something nutritious that will sustain you throughout your morning. This smoothie will be ideal, as it cools Pitta and pacifies Vata. Try adding some almond butter if you feel in need of more protein.
