3 tablespoons oats
10 almonds (for ease, use blanched almonds)
3-4 saffron strands (optional)
1 cardamom pod (or equivalent in powder)
a pinch turmeric (optional, for colour)
sugar (according to taste)


Soak everything together for 1-2 hours (except the almonds if using regular almonds) in ¼ cup of water.

If using regular almonds, soak the almonds separately for 8 hours or quickly boil to easily remove the skins before soaking with the rest of the stuff.

After all the soaking, blend to a very fine paste.

Add 1 litre of water to form the shake.

Strain the shake if you want.

This drink can be stored in fridge for around a week.
