How Can This Ayurvedic Recipe Make You Feel Great?
Smooth, luxurious, decadent. Saffron & Rose Whipped Cream is ever-so-lightly sweet, sensuously emitting aromas of exotic saffron and heady rose. Creme-de-la-creme and creme-of-the-crop, the best cream rises to the top! Of all whipped variations familiar and unique, this deceivingly simple recipe leaves others pale in comparison. Melt a dollop into your morning chai and add the perfect finishing touch to your evening dessert. Is there a time of day when Saffron & Rose Whipped Cream isn't the right choice?
Refined, Light Delight
Whipped cream is often frowned upon by those trying to keep light and healthy. While it does increase kapha dosha, we at Joyful Belly heartily disagree with the dismissal of whipped cream. Briskly whipped with only a touch of sugar, homemade whipped cream tends to be much more digestable than storebought varieties. Adding aromatic saffron and rose helps your body digest heavy milk proteins by clearing stagnation from the stomach.
Healthy fats nourish the nerves and create a calm, relaxed mind. If you are one who suffers from anxieties or whose mind turns problems over and over again, you may be a candidate for comforting, nourishing Saffron & Rose Whipped Cream.
Balm for the Soul
Feeling frustrated, stressed, and impatient? These are signs that your firey pitta sensibilities are being tested. Pittas like everything to be perfect, and nothing comes half as close as Saffron & Rose Whipped Cream. Cool off your fire by indulging in this exquisitely refined balm for your soul. It's creamy texture is pleasing to pitta's love of finery, while rose is a potent tonic for firey hearts. Saffron takes it over the edge by bringing in smooth, grounded tones.

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)
Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics
Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance.
By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick.
Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold).
You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.
ABOUT COLD BIOCHARACTERISTIC
Cold refers to anything that reduces body temperature, metabolism, and blood flow.

The Three Doshas / Body Types
According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine
people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person.
Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness.
Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency.
Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses.
The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.
The 3 functional body types
are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha).
Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy.
Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy.
Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass.
Catabolic people tend to be easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry.
Metabolic people tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed.
Anabolic people are heavy, stable and grounded, but if they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion.
