What Is Moon Milk
Moon milk is a soothing and incredibly tasty beverage that is deeply rooted in Ayurvedic traditions. According to that ancient Vedic holistic health science, drinking warm milk before bed is a great remedy for anxiety, sleeplessness, and even insomnia. The moon milk recipe below will not only improve your sleep but will also balance your hormones and strengthen your immune system.
- 1 cup of unsweetened nut milk of your choice (almond, hemp, cashew, etc.)
- ½ a teaspoon of ground turmeric
- ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon of ground ashwagandha
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey
- 1 teaspoon of ghee or virgin coconut oil
- 1 pinch of ground ginger
- 1 pinch of black pepper
- 2 pinches of ground cardamom
Moon Milk: Directions
Pour the milk into a small saucepan and let it simmer over medium-low heat.
Add turmeric, cinnamon, ashwagandha, ginger, cardamom, and black pepper. Whisk energetically until it’s well combined and there are no clumps.
Add the coconut oil/ghee and reduce the heat to low. Cook the milk and spices mixture for at least 5-10 minutes. The longer you cook it, the stronger it will get.
Remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly. Add raw honey and stir until it dissolves into the milk. Top the milk with extra cinnamon, and it’s good to go.
For maximum benefit, enjoy your moon milk either after dinner or before bed.
