We have a few good weeks of summer left, so lets celebrate with sweet and light summer dessert!
This is a traditional Sri Lankan dessert, Sago pudding – made with sago and coconut milk and spiced with cinnamon. It is cooling and sweet so is excellent for calming the hot and fiery pitta dosha that flares up in summer.
Kapha dosha can be aggravated with the cooling and sweetness so anyone trying to manage kapha please consume only small amounts. It can be taken warm to manage vata dosha and the softness and sweetness can soothe a dry vata imbalance but again, small portions are best.
