In Ayurveda, there’s lots of little self-care rituals from sun salutations to gut cleansing and tongue scraping. Rituals that have been practiced by millions of people for thousands of years and are just as good for the mind, body and soul.
At Deja, we believe that the rituals that stick best are the ones we enjoy. So we’ve been inspired to create our very own new rituals; that bring you joy, are packed with health benefits for your mind and body, and are as easy as drinking your morning coffee. Oh, and did we mention, they’re delicious too?!
May your morning latte give you the strength you need to make it to your mid-morning latte
We make time for things we enjoy. That’s exactly why we’ve created our new vegan, 100% natural and organic latte powders - Gold Power, Love Cacao and Glow Wild - three new adaptogenic lattes in three delicious flavours, each bursting with Ayurvedic herbs and adaptogens with different health benefits.
Meet the first of the trio, Gold Power:
Put simply, it’s our take on Golden Milk – the ancient Ayurvedic daily tonic that boosts energy levels and immunity - but it has added Ayurvedic ingredients for extra benefits.
If you’re missing the depth of coffee in herbal teas – this is for you. Kickstart your day with it or use it as a little mid-afternoon pick-me-up when you’re feeling tired, our Turmeric Latte Powder is the perfect tonic to help you to get through the day. In fact, it’ll leave you feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready for what’s ahead.
It’s super quick to make too. Just mix the Golden Power Latte Powder with your milk of choice - think oat milk, almond milk, or cow’s milk - and say hello to an adaptogenic Turmeric latte with all of the zing of a coffee but without the comedown.
Our Golden Latte doesn’t just look great either as it has a naturally creamy and warming taste thanks to Turmeric - which is just one of the Ayurvedic ingredients inside:
Famed for its gorgeous golden colour, and used all over the world in medicine thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Turmeric purifies and moderates the immune system. It also boasts prebiotic properties which support a healthy gut. And, as we all know, Ayurveda says a healthy gut is the best place to start for overall good health. New research also shows that Turmeric plays a role in reducing anxiety and improving mental health - so you can start your day with kinder thoughts. In fact, it’s so happy it turns your latte sunshine yellow too.
Known as the Indian Ginseng and meaning ‘strength of a horse’, Ashwagandha can be found in many of our natural supplements. It’s an adaptogen which means it helps the body to deal with stress, while also building up the immune system, acting as a natural energy boost, and improving vitality. It’s great for a good night’s sleep too, which we all know is needed to help us feel our best.
A type of flowering plant, and also called Indian Madder, Manjistha is one of the best blood-purifying herbs around. It breaks up blockages in the blood flow, promotes healing, and detoxifies the body from within. It’s also said to relieve a number of skin conditions.
With a gorgeous warm flavour, we’ve included Cinnamon because of its ability to improve digestion, aid circulation and boost strength. Studies also show that it reduces congestion - especially in the respiratory system.
Cardamom supports digestion, helps clear congestion and promotes clear breathing. It also has a great smell and taste, which is popular in Ayurvedic cooking.
- Black Pepper
This popular Ayurvedic ingredient helps to boost the absorption and, therefore, effectiveness of Turmeric’s antioxidant properties.
Start your day with an Ay-latte
Let’s face it, we could all do with a little helping hand when it comes to mental strength, immunity and focus.
That’s exactly why we’ve created our range of latte powders - each of which are designed to help you to find moments for chill, focus or for tuning into your body. In fact, they’re ideal for sitting back, switching off from life’s daily stresses for just one moment and indulging in a delicious self-care ritual that brings you joy and is a tonic for your body and mind.
You can shop the full range of our latte powders on our website, and don’t forget to tag us in your latte art pics. If you’re asking us, we like to froth up the milk in winter and serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon and, come summer, it makes a delicious iced-milkshake. Yes please.
