Dates in ghee

Written by Rhian Hunter

Ghee, dates, and saffron are all considered exceptionally healing according to Ayurveda. The reason is that they are all high in ojas.

Rich, Sweet, Saffron Dates in Spiced Ghee are more than your average sweet snack. This ancient Ayurvedic tonic nourishes and revitalises your deepest tissues. It is a classic rasayana, a formula for rejuvination. The perfectly decadent combination of flavourful spices, rich medjool dates, and juicy ghee.

If you are in need of a little extra umph at any time, replenish your ojas with one of these a day.


15 Medjool Dates
1 Cup Pure Grass-fed Ghee
Saffron – a few threads
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp. Cardamom, ground
1/2 tsp. Ginger, ground
1/8 tsp. Ashwagandha


In a small pan, melt the ghee.
Stir in the saffron, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. Stir for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat, add the ashwagandha, stir to combine and allow it to cool.
Take a clean, dry jar and put the dates in.
Pour the ghee mixture over the dates while it’s lukewarm, let it cool completely before dealing with an airtight lid and store in dark area of your pantry (they’ll keep for a long time ).
