Recommendations for doshas
Vata: Cold drinks are not a good choice for Vata. Use fresh fruits instead of frozen ones. Room temperature is better to keep Vata energy in balance, instead of aggravating it.
Pitta: This drink has a cooling effect, which balances Pitta dosha.
Kapha: Reduce the banana amount or replace it with mango.
