Wind down after a busy day with this soothing warm drink.
Moon milks are a modern take on Ayurvedic drinks such as Golden milk.
They are traditionally drunk to support a good night's sleep and a strong immune and nervous system.
In the west many drink a relaxing warm milk with honey before bedtime; this rose vanilla moon milk with adaptogens is a delicious upgrade.
This plant-based beverage is warming, calming, heart-opening and immune-boosting.
It contributes to a pleasant mood, a clear mind and it connects you to your own core, especially if you are sensitive to external stimuli.
Here is how you make it:
125 ml oat milk
125 ml coconut milk
1 tsp rosewater
1/2 tsp beet powder
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract
1 tsp I am calm blend
pinch of ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp bee pollen (optional)
Warm the milk over low heat. Mix in all the ingredients except the maple syrup and the bee pollen. Stir regularly.
Once the milk is warm enough, turn off the heat and add the maple syrup.
Pour the moon milk into a cup and sprinkle some bee pollen over it.
