What is Moon Milk?

Moon milk is a delicious and soothing beverage that has its roots in Ayurvedic traditions. Ayurveda is Sanskrit word that translates to ‘knowledge of life’. It is an ancient Vedic holistic health science with emphasis on the mind-body connection. In Ayurveda, warm milk consumed before bed is a common remedy for sleeplessness, anxiety and insomnia. Moon milk can be the simplest concoction of milk and honey or more complex such as those with a variety of spices, fruit or even adaptogens and herbs.

Tips for making Moon Milk:

  • You can use any dairy or non-dairy milk of choice, but if you use a sweetened milk, please omit the maple syrup/honey from the recipe.

  • I do not recommend omitting the coconut oil, as it helps in the absorption of vital nutrients and lends to the overall flavor of the recipe.

  • If you are on a low-sodium diet, you can omit the salt.

  • Make this Moon Milk sugar-free or keto friendly by omitting the sweetener or using a sugar free syrup such as this one.

  • Please do not skip the soaking step for best results. 30 minutes is the minimum soaking time. You can also soak as long as 8 hours, or overnight before blending.

  • For an extra creamy and frothy moon milk, use a milk frother such as this one.
