Moon Milk

Moon Milk

Have you heard of moon milk? It’s an old Ayurvedic remedy for sleep. (Ayurvedic medicine is a whole-body approach that was developed in India thousands of years ago.) It contains several anti-inflammatory herbs and spices, along with a natural adaptogen called ashwagandha, which helps calm the body. This warm drink is all about positive energy and balance in the body

Moon milk in a mug


2 pinches ground
1 pinch
1 pinch
1 tsp ghee or virgin
1 tsp raw
  1. Add milk to small saucepan; simmer over medium-low heat.
  2. Add cinnamon, turmeric, ashwagandha, cardamom, ginger, and black pepper.
  3. Whisk vigorously (to avoid clumps) until combined.
  4. Add ghee/coconut oil, reduce heat to low, and cook for at least 5-10 minutes. (The longer it cooks, the stronger the milk is.)
