Blue Moon Milk for Clarity & Reflection

Warm butterfly pea flower moon milk in a mug


On August 30, 2023, we will experience a super blue moon. Astronomers say it will be the closest, biggest, brightest full moon of the year. To me, this super full moon holds the potential to illuminate stagnant thoughts and emotions, both of which are good self-work for me right now. I am planning to spend the evening seeking clarity from these “peripheral” thoughts so I can move into them or on from them healthily and productively.

To get in this space, I decided to call on some of my trusted herbal allies to help me slow down busy and distracting thoughts. In doing so, I ease my overactive brain so that I may uncover the important things that have been muffled by the noise of life. I decided that the perfect vehicle for this herbal support would be best enjoyed as a moon milk—a blue one, of course. Butterfly pea flowers are the star of the show for this blend since they are responsible for the dreamy blue hue.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for many moons to come.

Blue Moon Milk Recipe with Homemade Hemp Milk

Makes about a pint.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add water, butterfly pea flowers, chamomile flowers, and passionflower to a pot over medium heat.
  2. Heat until just simmering.
  3. Adjust heat to low and cover for 10 minutes.
  4. Strain herbs from tea and add liquid to blender.
  5. Add hemp seeds. Blend on medium-high for 1 minute.
  6. Pour through a cheesecloth, nut bag, or finely woven stainless-steel mesh strainer.
  7. Once strained, add vanilla extract, sugar, and optional Adapt Care extract.
  8. Stir well and enjoy!

Pro Tips

  • You can swap the sugar for your sweetener of choice. I like sugar since it has the most neutral taste.
  • Upcycle the slurry from the hemp milk by freezing it into cubes and using them in smoothies.
  • If you would prefer to use a different milk, you can infuse the herbs into your milk of choice and skip the hemp seeds.
