My Vedic Kitchen—Cooling, Delicious Ayurvedic Summer Recipes

When the weather heats up in the summertime, fiery Pitta dosha dominates the environment. While Ayurveda offers many tips to stay cool in the summer, juicy, cooling foods and drinks are at the top of the list. If you’re looking for some Ayurvedic summer recipe inspo, look no further—we’ve got you covered!  

Ayurvedic recipes for summer

Main courses 

Head to your local farmers market and stock up on some fresh herbs and produce to prepare your main course. Summer Pasta for Pitta, Seasonal Veggie Quinoa Salad, and Quinoa Paneer Burgers are all potluck-friendly  recipes. You’ll love the vibrant colors and harmonizing flavors! 

Sides & snacks

What’s summertime without an inviting salad made from the sweetest, juiciest, most refreshing (and Pitta-pacifying) fruits available? Try our Summer Fruit Salad. If you’re heading to the beach, bring a healthy snack like these tasty Oven Roasted Pumpkin Seeds—and add a few dashes of our cooling Pitta Churna Spice Mix!


Cooling drinks are effective at beating the heat. Reach for cooling—but not ice-cold—beverages to keep your digestion strong. Some of our favorites include the refreshing Cucumber Lime Juice, Watermelon Juice, and Cooling Summer Water. If you’re craving a smoothie, check out Three Cooling Summer Smoothies. And, as a delicious digestive aid, try our Mint & Fennel Lassi

Cooling foods and drinks are not only delicious—they can be used as balancing tools to help you stay comfortable during the summer months. For more recipe inspo, explore our Ayurvedic recipe blog!
