Every time I visit a farm, I learn so much from the farmers and take home a wealth of knowledge. I visited the co-op of E-Magsasaka in Naic Cavite and met the manager, Willy. He told me that his favourite shake is made out of cucumber and ampalaya with a dash of honey and calamansi. I quickly bought some of his produce and tried this at home. It was so refreshing and delicious.
Lately I’ve been a little obsessed with balancing my doshas- Ayurveda body types and constitution- with the summer heat that’s getting hotter! This heat is hot for any body type so it will help for sure! This drink is cooling with the slightly bitter taste of the ampalaya and the cooling factor of the cucumber. They don’t say cool as a cucumber for nothing! Give this shake a try this summer!
