If drinking warm milk before bed sounds like the kind of advice you might hear from your grandma—well, it turns out grandma knows best again! Drinking heated creamy beverages before bed has been practiced for centuries and has helped people all over the world drift off into a restful sleep. It is also commonly recommended by Ayurvedic practitioners to calm fiery doshas and to help balance the body before bed. Nowadays, these magical cups of comfort are often referred to as moon milks and incorporate herbs and spices to help assist the body in relaxation.

Here are three tasty ways to try moon milk for yourself. We hope they help you have the sweetest of dreams!

Adaptogenic moon milk awaits sipping

Adaptogenic Moon Milk

Makes 8 ounces.

This recipe incorporates adaptogenic herbs that help the body handle the stresses of the day. Ashwagandha and chaga mushroom have earned a celebrated reputation for helping to quiet the minds and revitalize the bodies of those who find themselves juggling more things than they can handle. This blend is a unique and tasty way to work more adaptogens into your routine.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pour preferred milk into a saucepan and add ashwagandha and chaga powders.
  2. Set burner to medium-low, and let gently simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer into a blender.
  4. Add remaining herbal powders and honey.
  5. Blend on high for about 30 seconds.
  6. Pour the whipped milk into your favorite mug and garnish with freshly cracked pink peppercorns.

Tulis is added to a warm pot of oat milk

Tulsi Moon Milk

Makes 8 ounces.

This earthy milk has a lovely herbal flavor and a bit of tang that is perfectly complemented by the mellow sweetness of coconut. Holy basil, also commonly called tulsi, is not only an adaptogen, but also has been known to support immune health.* Enjoy this blend when you want to enliven the taste buds while relaxing the mind and body.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pour preferred milk into a saucepan.
  2. Add holy basil and broken-up hop flowers.
  3. Set burner to medium-low and heat until milk starts to gently bubble.
  4. Simmer for about 5 minutes
  5. Strain out herbs and pour infused milk into a blender.
  6. Add coconut oil, hibiscus powder, and honey.
  7. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until frothy.
  8. Pour the whipped milk into your favorite mug and garnish with coconut flakes.

 

Calming Kava Rose Moon Milk

Makes 8 ounces

Combining the self-love aspects of vanilla and rose with the stress reducing effects of kava* makes for an ideal blend for disconnecting from the outside world and reflecting inward. Keep in mind that many people experience slight numbing and tingling when consuming kava, so don't be surprised if it makes your mouth tingle a bit. I balanced the blend so the sensation should not be overpowering.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pour preferred milk into a saucepan.
  2. Add broken-up rose buds.
  3. Set burner to medium-low and heat until milk starts to gently bubble.
  4. Simmer for about 5 minutes
  5. Strain out rose and pour infused milk into a blender.
  6. Add kava kava and vanilla powders, cocoa butter wafer, and honey.
  7. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until nice and frothy.
  8. Pour whipped milk in your favorite mug and garnish with a pinch of rose powder.

 

Pro Tips:

  • Start with 9 ounces of milk, since some of the milk will evaporate off. This way, you’ll end up with a full 8-ounce glass.
  • I personally find honey to be soothing before bedtime, but feel free to omit the sweetener or substitute in an alternative!
