Sometimes the full moon can make us feel restless, and insomnia can kick in. But before bedtime, try having a warm Moon Milk with delicious, nutritious flavours to help calm the body and help you get a restful sleep.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
1 cup whole milk or unsweetened nut milk (such as hemp, almond, or cashew)
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
¼ teaspoon ground ashwagandha, or another adaptogen, like maca powder
2 pinches of ground cardamom
Pinch of ground ginger (optional)
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil or ghee
1 teaspoon honey, preferably raw
Bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
Whisk in cinnamon, turmeric, ashwagandha, cardamom, ginger, if using, and nutmeg; season with pepper. Whisk vigorously to incorporate any clumps.
Add coconut oil, reduce heat to low, and continue to cook until warmed through, 5–10 minutes (the longer you go, the stronger the medicine).
Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in honey (you want to avoid cooking honey or you'll destroy its healing goodness). Pour into a mug, drink warm, and climb right into bed.
