Moon Milk



I love nothing more than curling up in bed, before I sleep I like to unwind with a good book I try not to watch tv, as I feel like I can not switch off or if I even dare look at my phone and scroll through Instagram, that is it I've just spent the better part of 2 hours wired on my phone and find it hard to switch off and sleep.

I have never been to be fair the greatest sleeper, a million years ago when I used to work as a stylist in the day and then as an event manager at night, I used to turn to sleeping tablets to help aid me to get a good relaxing sleep, I soon learnt that this is not healthy nor a long term solution and certainly do not recommend it to anyone.


As you know I am trying to turn over a new healthy outlook this 2019, so when I heard about moon milk a natural tea to help you rest better I was game for trying it, plus it fits nicely in with my new outlook on wellness.

Moon Milk is essentially a jazzed up warm milk, as a kid I was never a fan of warm milk, probably why I was restless, up all night reading, instead of getting my good 8 hours in. Moon Milk is more of a jazzed up adult version of warm milk, with calming cinnamon and natural honey you can even put some turmeric in to it which has many health benefits, plus it gives it a great colour. You would of seen last year all the different hues and variations of Moon Milk sprung up all over Instagram.

I decided to opt for Oat Milk for my version of Moon Milk, it tastes better, plus it regulates sugar levels, can reduce bloating and cholesterol also, but any milk can be used, from normal cows milk, to almond, coconut or soya go nuts after all you will be consuming it so modify to your tastes.


Also, to achieve this blue colour I added butterfly pea flower tea not only for the colour but it too can help reduce stress, but you can leave it out if you wish. For example I used honey, you could use your favourite sweetener or maple syrup even  or if you don't want to add a slight sweetness, the choice is yours, it is all about your own personal taste.

Ingredients

1 cup milk of your favourite milk
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon butterfly pea flower powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg, or to your taste

Directions
  1. Heat up a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together milk with honey, butterfly pea powder, and spices until powder is dissolved and milk is warm
  2. Once nice and warm whizz up with an electric mixer to give you a nice froth on top
  3. Pour into warm mug, relax and enjoy
