Some of you may have caught on to my love of colorful beverages by now . . .

What is Moon Milk?
Read all about it in My Ultimate Guide to Moon Milk.
Just look at that beautiful color! And the best part? Blue Butterfly Pea Flowers (Clitoria ternatea) are packed with antioxidants, stress-relieving properties, and anti-inflammatory effects. What's not to love?
Throw in some cooling and calming peppermint, magnesium-rich (sleep promoting!) sunflower seeds, and vitamin c and antioxidant-rich blueberries and you have yourself one doubly blue brew that is wholly magical and delicious.
This Blue Moon Milk is:
Packed with healthy nutrient dense ingredients.
Soothing, calming, relaxing.
Creamy and satisfying.
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, nut-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free.
Tips for making Blueberry Moon Milk:
In a pinch, dried or freeze-dried blueberries work well as a substitution.
The peppermint extract can be replaced with a food-grade peppermint essential oil.
For a sugar-free version, this sugar-free sweetener works great at replacing maple syrup.
To Make Iced Blue Moon Milk:
Blend all ingredients PLUS the addition of maple syrup/sweetener of choice.
Do not heat. Simply strain, then pour over ice.
I truly hope you enjoy my take on this nighttime beverage with its roots in Ayurveda; and give the amazing Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Powder a spin yourself!
