Shakti is a feminine life force. It’s the energy that moves through us, making us feel alive, luminous, and vibrant. While Shiva (masculine energy) observes, Shakti creates. She is the process of intention to formulation to expression. Without her, there would be no life. This rose cardamom latte brings all her divine qualities out to dance.

1 cup non-dairy milk
4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
12 tsp rose water
12 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
3 fresh raspberries
‘/4 tsp natural beet-derived pink food colouring (optional, for colour)
dried rose petals, to garnish

In a small saucepan, stir together non-dairy milk, cardamom, rose water, vanilla, and food colouring, if using. Bring to a simmer over medium low heat for 3-5 minutes.

Remove from heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve. Froth using an electric frother, and serve sprinkled with rose petals.
