Did someone say fast and quick cannot be delectable? If there is one such person, I would be presenting to him our latest easy to make Ashwagandha Chocolate Sesame Nutty Pops. To be honest, this is inspired by Til Ka Laddos which comes from the eastern states. Til or sesame has been revered for generations in our culture. Whether it is marriage or any Pooja, Til or Sesame is offered as offering to Gods. In winters it is a regular affair to have Gazak made from Jaggery and Sesame. I hardly have any winter that goes without it. Now add to the magical properties of Ashwagandha, Chocolate, roast oats, cinnamon, and flaxseeds. Hmm! With all the good ingredients, I get suspicious (can it taste good!).
Don't go by these unproductive thoughts. Ashwagandha Chocolate Sesame Nutty Pops easy to make preparation is HEAVENLY.
Nutritious Ashwagandha Sesame Pops
This divine preparation uses all the heavenly ingredients. Inspired from one of our local recipes, this preparation looks great.
- Roasted oats (my favorite)
- Chia seeds
- Coconut Oil
This recipe is inspired from the eastern India, where Til or Sesame is had in various forms. Sesame is not only great in taste but also has hundreds of beneficial properties. Firstly it has very high fiber content and along with Oats, Flaxseeds, and Chia seeds, this is a super-duper combination. Flaxseeds is high on plant-based omega 3 fatty acid. Chia Seeds are one of the few foods that provide high nutrition with one of the lowest numbers of calories. All the ingredients combined give you enough to keep your gut in shape. 3-4 of these pops should be able to give the necessary fibers for the day. Since all the ingredients are organic, we ensure that the benefits are unadulterated.
Ashwagandha is the "King of Herbs" and is an adaptogen. This means that it helps the body fight stress and anxiety and therefore builds immunity. It is high on different kinds of antioxidants, which gives it anti-inflammatory properties. We won't talk about it much, because we can go on and on... Read more on Ashwagandha here
